Konno's Kolumn #5: Early stage

Konno gave this starting hand as an example:
1-crak 2-crak 6-crak 8-crak 4-dot 6-dot 8-dot 1-bam 5-bam 7-bam 8-bam :east :south red-dra
If I hold onto the :south, doesn\'t that increase the chance that it will get ponned when I do discard it (because somebody might be collecting wind tiles)?

Re:Mahjong Fairy Report

Um... offer prizes to anyone who beats you in 2-player mahjong?

Get a set of Washizu mahjong tiles and play Washizu mahjong?

Re:Washizu Mahjong

As for making a Washizu set: you don\'t really need transparent tiles, only tiles which are engraved on both front and back.

Re:Ryuukyoku

I want to play mahjong. If I fold, then I\'m not playing mahjong, I\'m just waiting for the next hand. I have played mahjong video games in which I bought an item so I could see my opponent\'s tiles. Sometimes I would change yaku so I would not need to throw her winning tile. I did not give up on wi...

At least their yaku don\'t require me to fold my hand. For one, what a Japanese player might call "naki-pinfu" is allowed.

Re:Ryuukyoku

I want to play mahjong.

If you want defense, kill the one-yaku requirement. That way I will be more willing to change my waits. I would maybe be more willing to defend against chin\'itsu if I had not, for example, already committed myself to hon\'itsu in a different suit.

Re:Ryuukyoku

Where do you find these rules? And do they use the weak version of the \"furiten\" rule? What about atozuke? Seriously, I would much prefer Zung Jung (think WSOM), or perhaps even Chinese Classical, but where? My Japanese is rudimentary, yes, but my Chinese is limited pretty much to what few charact...

Re:Ryuukyoku

Do you know of any non-riichi mahjong rules which use no-ten payments? I don\'t. Why is this? Probably no need for them in other mahjong rulesets. What does this say about riichi?

Ryuukyoku

I do not like ryuukyoku much at all.

I do not like the idea of just basically waiting out a hand.

If I ran a mahjong parlor in Japan, I would have no table fees... but I would have a house rule that all \"no-ten\" payments would go, not to the \"tenpai\" players, but to the house.

Re:Sites

pairon.jp requires you to download a HUGE client (over 700 megabytes) and the game itself runs slow as molasses, and sometimes the buttons don\'t work. A nightmare.
