Re: Honitsu + round wind?

While we're at it, remember that Shousangen (little three dragons) counts in addition to any yaku for triplets of dragons. Meaning that the hand is worth at least 4 han.

Re:Super-mega competition - win fabulous prizes!!

I choose 4-bam. (No strategy involved, I just picked a tile from my own set.)

Re:the Akahai (Red 5 tiles)

Try buying from http://www.1kawaya.com. I have never bought transparent tiles from them, but from their pictures, it seems that they are quite serious about the quality of their transparent tile set.

You must have miscounted or something: that\'s 100100 points altogether.
I did not win a single hand! (ouch)
Well, from the looks of it, at least you didn\'t deal into any dealer mangans or anything.

Re:Dealer continuance & 5 sticks

When you declare kan (even concealed kan), aren\'t you required to show the faces of all four tiles in the kan?

Re:The Best 3 Player Rules Set

Because there\'s only two suits, your head must hurt after a while. Where did you learn about this 2-player variation? And how do you tell her which tile to discard? The awkward \"no, not this one, the one to the right -- no, your other right!\"? Or just \"first\", \"second\", etc., counting from an...

Re:If you want something done...

Here\'s what I think: I think that \"making it accessible\" is the way to go. It is already huge in Asia; there must be a market for it in the English-speaking world. So you\'re planning this for the Xbox, you say? I think that might be the problem: who would pay for it? I would at the very least pa...

Re:If you want something done...

Re:If you want something done...

I suggest you go ahead and buy your own tileset to look at, if you are that concerned about authentic appearance. but I\'m not sure you need to be quite so meticulous. If you just want a better idea of what a mahjong tile \"should\" look like, just download some mahjong anime (some have very detaile...
