Well, that didn't last long. I'm seeing reports tonight that Sega will be suspending the US service.

Re: Mahjong news

It's sad what happens to forums when spambots are left unchecked.

Saw the same thing happen to a music forum I used to frequent many moons ago. :(

The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.

Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

Yeah, but it's kinda weird seeing characters added when all the other graphics are the same as the full-size version. Speaking of which... good-news.jpg Sounds like they are actually working on converting their English-language MJ to run in HTML5. \o/ https://twitter.com/gamedesignjp/status/13538668...

Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

Weird to have the flush but no seven pairs. Maybe because the Yaku name specifies the number of tiles?

I guess there's no San Shoku or anything that specifies three or four sets. I wonder if any Yakuman are allowed...?

Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

The odds are so skewed in that mini variant.

A bot just got a closed flush - Haneman for only eight tiles.

Then I had two consecutive starting hands in Tenpai.

Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

A sad thought... with Adobe Flash discontinued from the end of 2020, the Riichi browser game at gamedesign.jp is no longer playable. The free solo play with English version served the community well. I'm sure everyone here must've played it over the years. o7 (salute) Meanwhile I continue to update ...
