Re: What Would You Discard (11/7)

I'd discard the 9-bam , see if I can aim for "Itsu" Ikkitsuukan (Straight Flush) for Bamboos... I wouldn't discard the 6-dot so early and would probably keep it, unless I picked up a 9-dot later on.

Re: Colossus Mahjong for c64

Hey ZRL! :D Great to see you on the forum - it's been a long time. You were a massive help to me when I was trying to translate my first proper mahjong game (and learn the rules). I still have very fond memories of my BBC home computer, despite the fact that you had to wait maybe 20 minutes to load...

Re: Ben's Blog

Ben Boas' blog showed an interesting insight into the Jansou culture in Japan, I can recall the bit where a Jansou owner was very pissed off at how certain people dob him to the police for operating "gambling activities" (he didn't get prosecuted), and how he related it to Japanese people being very...

Re: Hey hey just a shout out. & 'kyushukyuhai'

For the "Kyuushuu Kyuuhai" issue, I was always baffled as to why anybody would declare that. Being that they had 9 unique Terminals/Honors from their first 14 tiles, they'd be in an extremely good position to aim for Kokushi Musou!

Thanks for showing us this!

That game must've taken ages to load since the data's stored in a cassette... :shock:

Re:New Player. A few questions, for now, haha.

For the thirdly, you\'ll have to look at it in real life. In real life when there are 4 walls, dealer rolls dice. Dealer counts walls in an *Anti-clockwise direction* of the rolled number, starting from his wall as 1. The selected wall has the same rolled number counted by tile stacks from that pers...

Re:New Player. A few questions, for now, haha.

For your second picture, Riichi doesn\'t contribute to your Fu, it contributes to your Yaku total and is worth 1 Fan. You always get 20 Fu or more for winning a hand, except for Seven Pairs in which it\'s fixed at 25 Fu. You don\'t get 2 Fu for a closed hand, you get it if you win by Tsumo (even if ...

Re:New Player. A few questions, for now, haha.

In Secondly, I assume you are referring to the winning hand on the left coz it has a pair of winds (pair South). You will start from 30 (20 + extra 10) Fu if you win by *RON* on a *Concealed* hand, it doesn\'t matter if you said Riichi or not. It\'s the person on the left that won, and I\'m not sure...

Re:New Player. A few questions, for now, haha.

Hi Tang, For your First: Mangans can be 5 Fan, 4 Fan 40+ Fu, or 3 Fan 70+ Fu. ***Details of payout calculation*** The formula to calculate the raw unit is Rounded Fu * 2^(2+ Fan) = Rounded Fu * 4 * 2^Fan The raw unit is rounded to the next 100s to calculate a \"single unit payment\". For \"double un...

Re:The term for when you're ready without a yaku?

(use Shift-JIS)

A ready hand which won\'t complete a yaku is called \"Œ`Ž®’®”v\" (Keishiki Tenpai, Structure Tenpai).

I dunno what the temporary term is called as in your Pinfu example, it\'s all Keishiki to me...

(use Shift-JIS) Top Left - Apprentice Janshi (Mahjong Player)! You thought of the wrong Kanji, “y (soil/dirt) and Žm (servant) are different. In the first one, the bottom line is longer while in the other one, it\'s shorter. Top Right - Suu Ankou\'s Jan Ghost Bottom Right - Jan Tiger who is patient ...

Re:It's time for What Would You Discard! (July 4th)

I would discard 2-dot or 2-bam . I\'m trying to form Pinfu and Sanshoku (of 345), so by discarding one of those tiles, I become Isshanten. If I discarded 2-bam, the issue of 1-dot 2-dot 2-dot 3-dot 3-dot 4-dot 5-dot Dots has to be resolved later on. 1-dot 2-dot 2-dot 3-dot 3-dot 4-dot is already 2 C...
