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

Say. I'm curious as to how this went. :D We had a great day! People arrived just after lunch and we talk for about 30 minutes and were excited to get playing. My power-point tutorial on our big wide-screen TV went perfect and with questions + answers took less than an hour. The crib-sheet handouts ...

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

Okay - tomorrow is our big day! First meeting with the group - after some unexpected cancellations we will have exactly 8 players. Still a nice number for 2 full tables. My Power Point slides are basically done (see first page - the image is updated) and my New Player Aid is printed and ready. Food ...

Re: I dealt into a yakuman and still won the game!

Very cool! I've dealt into a non-dealer Sanbaiman and won once. I was so far ahead - honestly I was almost throwing tiles to let someone win (my hand was crap) though it turns out it was much closer than I expected on this final hand given my deal-in. I'll use more caution next time.

Re: I need help with a RM.com purchase

If it's coming from Japan and you're in the USA usually 2 weeks is about right though I've had several items (I've bought hundreds of video games direct from Japan) held up in customs for 5 or 6 weeks! I'd give it a little more time - though a confirmation email would have been helpful. Also, rememb...

Re: New Episode #59 10-Oct-2012 is up!

As an aside, I've noticed that neither new episode (#59 nor #60) have shown in my iTunes feed yet. I can get them from the front page. Maybe it's just me. Also, for Ep #60 the audio seems to be a little distorted. There is a hum I'm hearing for the first time and the 'P's are causing a bit of a pop ...

Re: New Episode #59 10-Oct-2012 is up!

I can't easily access Ron^2 given my choice of platforms to run my machines on I thought Ron^2 was written in Java. Isn't the whole point of Java that it runs on all platforms? Not that I doubt they could find a way to make it not work on whatever you use. I tried loading it in Firefox for Linux an...

Re: New Episode #59 10-Oct-2012 is up!

#60 17-Oct-2012 is up. Glad the podcasts are back, gives me something to listen to at work. Heard something about a Ron^2 meetup in there, which would be fun, I'd make an account for that (Maybe I have one but I don't remember the details..). Though, if Jenn/Garthe have issues with being allowed to...

Street Mahjong in Hong-Kong

I'm sure some of you have seen this short street-shot video of Mahjong being played in Hong-Kong. But It's worth seeing if you haven't... the speed at which they play is fun to watch and, unlike the Reach rules, they open their hands like there is no tomorrow! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzcmCvOM...

Very helpful, thanks! Updating now... I should have realized San=3 on the Toi-Toi / San ankou mixup!

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

Okay... My Power Point presentation for teaching the basics of the rules is almost ready. I have also put together a Player Aid sheet for the day. It's simplified Riichi Mahjong but still presents enough of the core elements to get us going in the right direction. I hope. You can see the one page su...

Re: Mini-Review of iOS Janryumon (雀龍門)

The touchscreen gesture commands are an interesting feature. Does the game give any prompt or pause when you can use one? I honestly don't know. I don't use them. I don't think you have to enable them so I think they are simply active all the time and when you get a chance for Pon/Chi/Ron/Reach/etc...

Re: The Definitive Guide to Finding Mahjong Equipment on Eba

An eBay trader selling a complete vintage mahjong set should get automatically insta-banned for including this text (or similar) in the listing. :( These gorgeous tiles would also be great for making jewelry or for use in other crafting projects!
