Re: Happiness in a New Year

Awh, that was a nice present.

Season's greetings and best wishes for the new year.

Perhaps the 2020's will see another big mahjong craze in the West like the 1920's! :o

Re: Mahjong at the movies?

Didn't see it. I only really check the local and BBC headlines.

I just spotted this black MJ set in season 6 of Mike Judge's Silicon Valley. (2019)

Re: Mahjong at the movies?

It's the third ep in series 8, entitled "Kau pahi, ko'u kua. Kau pu, ko'u po'o"!

I think you only see the table briefly a couple of times in early scenes.

Ok, I was using the tile symbols themselves, [...] instead of writing out the actual words like 2 dot 3 dot 4 dot.

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.

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.
