Re: Red Threes or Red Sevens

This makes me want to relook at some of the pro Japanese women's videos, which included Red 3's. I recall red 3-pin, but not for the other two. Considering Ryuu iisou... having a red-3 would kinda defeat that purpose, wouldn't it? But, I'm going to guess: there'd be an exception.

Re: Yakuman Club

A quick question. If the dealer makes double riichi at his first discard and the south player deals immediately his wining tile.Is it a Renho Yakuman or not ??? Nope. That's Double Riichi + Ippatsu. (And ouch) Renho applies to non-dealers, where that first discard is the win. For Tenhou, Chihou, Re...

Re: Mahjong at BBG CON 2012

Cap of 2000. And sell out in 3 months. This con can grow rather easily. I'd say: every major city has the potential to host one of these. In light of the video games these past few decades, the taste for board gaming is growing underneath it. Simply because, video games have become rather bland thes...

Re: The Tenhou Log Review Thread (TTLRT)

East 3-0 : Calling the West was quite reckless, considering the hand can hardly be finished without Hatsu and is not going to worth much. South 4-0 : I'm not sure why you keep discarding 8man while you have tiles that are 100% safe against C and less damaging for your hand. For both of those, I'll ...

If it weren't for that East call, it would have been Tsumo for Yakuman. But, I'll take it as is -- for it sent the leader all the way down to 4th.

Re: Let's see your Mahjong Collections!

I only have a mere mahjong set and a mere junk mat. Nothing more. Well, add 2 square tables to play them on. As for English print books -- not all that happy with what's available.

800? That's tiny. I'm used to anime conventions, numbering in the thousands. Even so, I see potential in board gaming conventions growing just as large.

Thanks. In that forum, I am poorer than that of a hobo. :P

I just hope your edits don't get undone by overzealous moderators. Yea.

Re: Finally!

Human beings aren't programmed to settle for mediocrity. At least, I want to believe so, if I am to keep little faith in humanity. Yet, for every person, there exists a limit - whether it be mahjong or whatever else we do. Furthermore, those limits are relative for each person. Even so, I'm interes...
