Re: Time for an upgrade? (ultra-luxury tiles)

Four weeks after seeing this and I'm still getting served ads on Facebook and Reddit for posh chess and backgammon sets. :roll:

I guess they'll lose interest eventually and start spamming me with different things I also don't want...

Re: Looking for a set

This is certainly uncommon. A quick browse through some stores and a Google image search shows how unusual this is, although I did find this stock image: https://www.vectorstock.com/royalty-free-vector/mahjong-tiles-vector-50138 There's a question on Tom's Q&A (FAQ 7e) about why the 5, 7 and 9 have ...

Re: Exactly how tough is Chuurenpoutou even in 3er?

Seen a lot of 3-player Yakuman wins, but don't recall seeing any collated stats. Even though the 2-8 Manzu tiles are removed in 3P and you can't make a flush hand with that suit, I think you're still over four times more likely to draw any 13+ random tiles of the same suit (in your starting hand and...

Re: OK - I finally jumped into MahjongSoul today...

That's good to know. My various guides should've helped more than a few people over the years. The new USPML website doesn't give a download count but the old version showed several thousand for my PDF guide as I recall. I'm still around but less active. Mainly posting random bits and maintaining th...

Re: OK - I finally jumped into MahjongSoul today...

Hi Dave. Nice to hear from you and good to know you've been getting back into mahjong. Weird to have "Time" and "Hime" platforms both discussed in the same short thread here! Here's some Soul/Hime comparison chat from a few months back... https://www.reddit.com/r/Mahjong/comments/ez6cki/those_who_pl...

Mahjong appears in a 2019 episode of The Flash with some flashy gold-backed tiles.

Re: I'm officially on fire! Four Yakuman made in a span of just 42 hours or so...

Congrats on the streak. :) I can't view the Majsoul ones without a login. What was the rare Yaku?



EDIT:
Spoiler: show
I've been informed it was Ryan Peikou - and with the same numbers in both suits for extra (cool) points. 8)

The Yakuman wins in Majsoul were Suu Ankou Tanki and Kokushi.

Re: SegaMJ App releases in English

Yes, seems to be a novice player. Their very first move is to discard a red five from 3456m, accompanied by a voice line that was probably "They just increased their Shanten" in the original Japanese in-game commentary. Seems to be a channel that shares footage of various new mobile games. Their vid...
