Ok, I was using the tile symbols themselves, [...] instead of writing out the actual words like 2 dot 3 dot 4 dot.
Remember to include the hyphen between the number and word if you want it to show the tile images in the poll section.

Re: WWYD

WWYD = which would you discard? That is a valid question! With a general principle of appearing strong when weak and vice versa, discarding an identical tile from your hand can break a string of discarded draws so it looks like you're still building your hand rather than Tenpai. In this example that...

Re: WWYD

(Wow, it's actually been over three years since the last post on this WWYD board. You used to add a survey with the tile icons as options. There's hardly enough active posters to make that worthwhile now - although perhaps some people who don't want to make a post would at least be happy to give a ...

Your account is currently not bound, you click to bind it (link to the Google, Twitter or Facebook account you used in the web version of the game). https://twitter.com/MahjongSoul_EN/status/1199357147194281984 I think the game is mainly intended for playing online with a fixed consistent rule-set -...

Re: Mahjong at the movies?

Good work, Steve! TV shows are welcome. That's a nice lot of autodealer tables. I've never watched L&O but evidently it is shot in New York. Curious now whether that's a real parlour or if they borrowed from the auto-table dealer in NYC's Chinatown! The rest of the set dressing is relatively basic, ...

Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

The free demo for RGG7 was released for PS4 yesterday and has several playable minigames including mahjong at the new parlour in the new city. As well as the Japanese PSN store, the demo is also available from the Hong Kong store which has an English interface, although the demo itself only supports...

The playlist linked in my second post is being updated with new vids so that's the easiest way to find and play them all.

Re: It's the first time I manage something like this.

There are various definitions for Paa Renchan, but most commonly you specifically need to win eight hands in a row and - despite the name - Renchan from dealer Tenpai draws don't count. Some definitions require all eight wins as east, but the common one lets you count earlier wins as a non-dealer (b...

Re: It's the first time I manage something like this.

Okay, cool. Been so many years since I've used it - and Flash isn't even working for me now.

Oh well, it's not like I need another mahjong game! The world's a better place for having a free web-based Flash game in English though.

Re: JPML video guide series in English (with Garthe and Jenn)

Conversely I missed Tanyao Tips and posted Perfect Pairing here as "Part 3", then got confused when I saw another episode before it on the playlist.

The first two videos were Parts 1 and 2 of Episode 1, followed by Episodes 2 and 3. I think.

Re: It's the first time I manage something like this.

As an opponent once said to me on Janline-R (PS3) after a nice streak of hand wins - "Kitsui". (formidable, very strong) What game was this on? Does it generate that history for you? I would've liked to see a streak of eight wins for Paa Renchan! Hmm, part of the challenge would be avoiding valuable...
