Re:Saki and Riichi?

http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i140/chrisk32/rinshan.jpg Mwahaha. Totally unexpected... but just like Saki. The other players seemed to be all tenpai, so I was going to start bailing, but with this I was able to defend my turn as East. Too bad I didn\'t end up winning, things went downhill from ...

Re:Mahjong Video Games -

Wow, looks very nice! Thanks for the pictures; strangely enough, I can\'t find ANY screenshots or videos of Mahjong Taikai anywhere, so that\'s the first I\'ve really seen of the gameplay. I might have to get my hands on it soon. My only doubt is that if I buy it now, they might announce Mahjong Tai...

Re:Mahjong Video Games -

Wow Barticle, thanks for the comprehensive overview. I looked it up and it seems that the Wii counterparts of both Mahjong Taikai and MFC are updated versions of the PS3 releases (makes sense, since they came out earlier). MFC online is a paid service (through a payment method unavailable to those n...

Re:Mahjong Video Games -

Barticle, how do you like Mahjong Taikai? I\'ve been eyeing it and Mahjong Fight Club for PS3, but I haven\'t been able to find much information (I\'m particularly looking for trailers and gameplay videos) at all. I\'d buy Mahjong Fight Club in an instant, but several things bug me about it (the lay...

When do you put down 1000-points when you Reach?

On JanRyuMon, the 1000 points is not put on the table until it\'s another player\'s turn - that is, if the discard passes through or if someone calls a Pon or Chi, the 1000 points is only put on the table after. If someone declares Ron on the reach discard, then the 1000 points is not given up. Howe...

Mahjong Video Games -

Hi everyone, I just wanted to see what people think of playing mahjong video games versus CPU opponents. Do you think it makes you improve? De-improve? Do you think they play at all like real people would? Do you think they cheat? I play mahjong on my PSP from time to time, such as when I\'m on the ...

Questions about the "Official Rules"

Hi everyone, I\'ve been playing Cantonese mahjong for a long time, and over the past few years picked up Japanese mahjong through trial and error in video games. I wanted a book that I could carry around, that would be able to actually define the rules, because I was unclear on a lot of the finer po...

Re:Come play with me on Jan Ryu Mon!

Wow that was a fast response!

No I am not - I didn\'t need it before, but I just changed internet service providers a week ago so that could be it. I\'ll try it again with the VPN bypass. See you in game in the coming few days then, I guess. :P

Re:Saki and Riichi?

I like Saki because of how dramatic they portray the game, but the fan-service gets annoying. It\'s overflowing with GL (girl-girl relationship stuff), and they like to remind us every episode that Nodoka\'s chest is very large. Then again, to a lot of anime fans, that\'s a plus. I guess it\'s like ...

Re:Come play with me on Jan Ryu Mon!

Nice, other English speaking players on the server?

My ID is, not surprisingly, \"suihi\". Although, are any of you having difficulties connecting to the site? I haven\'t been able to for about a week. :(

Jan Ryu Mon

It\'s a new online Mahjong software, free to play, with AWESOME 3D graphics, sound effects, etc. Check it out, though it does require you to know Japanese to get started.
