Re: Mahjong Uranai Fortuna - Tsuki no Megami Tachi

Thanks for the coverage on this, Bart. Glad to see some of these games making out for westerners to try (at a reasonable price). The original Japanese PS1 edition is easy to come by - I may have to pick it up.

Spreading the word!

Okay, I'm just back from a long weekend of gaming at a Bed & Breakfast in central PA. This is traditionally a long weekend of boardgaming but I've managed to sneak in some Riichi Mahjong (about 12 hours of it!). My wife and I taught 7 new players the game - all of whom enjoyed it and many of whom ar...

Mahjong at Unity Games XIX

More of a quick report than a request for a Meetup since it just happened this past Saturday (26-Jan-2013) I spent the day at Unity Games XIX (19) (this was the biggest turnout yet with 710 gamers). It's primarily a boardgaming event. I was fortunate enough to get in 2+ hours of live Riichi Mahjong ...

Re: Newbie introduction

Awesome seeing the newbies continue to introduce themselves. Maybe we have enough critical mass to try and make a go of an unofficial Reach Mahjong Forums Tenhou game-day (if it were timed correctly... say a given Saturday at Noontime EST which is 9AM west coast and early evening for the Euro folks)...

Re: Riichi Rules Advice

Many of you here know that I run the Portland Mahjong Society . It started off with me, just looking for three other people that wanted to play. Now, in our fifth year, with over 275+ members... we've had hundreds of matches, social events, and we regularly teach the game at a local Chinese garden....

Last few podcasts...

Obviously, the Jongcasts have been spotty. The front RM page isn't being updated with them and iTunes feed doesn't seem to have #60-#62 listed. Speaking of which, #62 dropped without any announcement - but you can download/listen if you have the direct link. For those interested the last few podcast...

Re: Sega MJ5 arcade system

Cool video! One thing I've noticed about some of the more 'realistic looking' video mahjong games is that they leave the discarded tiles slightly un-aligned to simulate the way they might look when humans are playing. However, for some reason I hate that - I like seeing the discards perfectly aligne...

Re: World Amateur Mahjong League

Thanks for posting this, Kyuu. I'm a little intimidated by a league but Tenhou is my bread-and-butter so I will strongly consider joining. If not this cycle, perhaps the next (sounds like a new cycle kicks in Jan-Feb, 2013?).

Re: Mahjong Group Assembled! Need Advice on Rules...

How was the ambience?! Excellent. I created a 75 minute music CD of traditional Japanese and Chinese music which looped in the background. We had an assortment of oriental teas available. We had thought to make something suitably Japanese (or at least Asian) for dinner but the catering options were...
