Re: Mini-Review of iOS NET MJ by SEGA

Yes, good coverage as always, thanks Dave. Looks pretty similar to the PC version which I discussed previously . Looks very similar indeed! I wonder if the two online versions play nice together -- that is, do people playing the PC version and the people playing the iOS Mobile version play on the s...

Mini-Review of iOS NET MJ by SEGA

With Janryumon Mobile going offline on 10-Jan-2014 (though I can still play offline ... for now anyway), I started to search for some good replacements. I ended up logging into the Japanese iTunes store (you can create an account with another email address to access the Japanese iTuens/Apple Store -...

Re: Newbie introduction

Great to see the new folks - welcome all!

I've had a bit of a hiatus in the last 2 months due to some time-critical projects, but I'm getting back to a full-day of Mahjong next weekend!

Re: Let's see your Mahjong Collections!

The new Noss Whitney has added colour photos of tiles throughout and removed "...the Modern Game" from the full title! I've got an older Noss Whitney and I found it a dry read and not all that well laid out. It was the first book I got on Mahjong and I'll admit it kinda turned me off the game some ...

Re: Alternative methods of enforcing Chombo

Since I tend to play a lot of teaching games, we don't usually enforce Chombo unless there is no way to continue the game. Often we'll just try and back out of the situation if it's only a single mis-drawn tile (correcting as best we can). If it's an illegal declare, we'll usually just let the playe...

Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

With all that excitement some reporters have overlooked a key announcement from Sony Computer Entertainment boss Shuhei Yoshida on Twitter - like the PS3, the PS4 will be region-free so you will be able to run Japanese games on US/Euro consoles. :D The big question is which games will run region-fr...

iOS Tenpai Trainer

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/45934553/pics/tenpai1.jpg Just a quick post to let folks know about a free iOS Tenpai trainer tool (available in the US and Japan Apple/iTunes store). It's simply called Tenpai and while it's not fancy, it is useful. It gives you a random hand and by default hint...

All-Day Riichi at the Bs!

Had friends over to play All-Day Riichi. We started at 1PM and finished just after 9PM (with take-out for dinner). Got in a full Hanchan followed by food then a Quarter Game to cap things off. I had my best game - with 4 continuances and some big hands (2x Mangan and 1x Baiman open Full Flush with s...

Re: Japanese Classical

I teach a Simplified Riichi to new players (more than 30 new players now! Many have grabbed their first Mahjong sets). I let them know that I've simplified it and re-introduce full rules as they get comfortable. The main rule changes I make to Riichi for teaching are as follows: :arrow: Elimination ...
