Re:Mahjong Video Games -

MFC online is a paid service (through a payment method unavailable to those not in Japan) and only links to other players on PSP and PS3. The Wii and DS seem to have their own service, and arcade is separate altogether... too bad everyone can\'t be linked together. To my knowledge, MFC online has t...

Re:New mahjong guides online (rules / kanji / PS3)

Corrections: In Japanese Mahjong, the standard order of the dragon tiles are white-dra green-dra red-dra (Haku, Hatsu, Chun). Also, \"kousoku\" literally means \"high-speed\", though it\'s often translated to \"express\" because it\'s most frequently used when talking about trains and highways. Skim...

Re:Setokuma likes two things I hate

I can think of one more reason for discarder-pays-all (which also applies to Pao): It makes it considerably harder for two or three players to collude in cash games. Without it, you could easily have two or even three players conspiring to intentionally deal into each other\'s hands. With discarder-...

Re:Crazy Mahjong Lingo...

Just a random stab in the dark, but the only slightly rude thing that I can think to guess for #3 would be \"chikushou\". Mild Japanese curse, and sounds vaguely similar to \"chiisou\".

Re:Riichi/MCR Mahjong & the Nintendo DS

So all those lovely DS mahjong games should work on a DSi, although I´ve heard something in the past about Chinese editions of DS games being dodgy in this respect. The Chinese edition problem is because the Chinese DS firmware has additional fonts and stuff to display Chinese characters, because p...

Cheaters on Jan Ryu Mon?

Ever since I managed to get back on the Jan Ryu Mon server about a week ago, I\'ve noticed that there\'s often one player at my table who will have the most ridiculous luck. We\'re talking Amae Koromo luck, and riichi + ippatsu + menzen tsumo on a tanki wait luck. I thought at first that it was just...

Re:Mahjong Video Games -

For CPU opponents, I usually play the Pro CPU mode in Mahjong Fight Club DS. I\'m quite convinced the AI on MFC doesn\'t cheat, nor do they collude with each other; I\'ve seen instances of two CPUs tenpai waiting for the same wind tile, each holding two. The only problem is, the MFC AI is rather wea...

Is Jan Ryu Mon completely down?

I started playing on Jan Ryu Mon about a month ago, and since about last week, I\'ve been unable to start up the game. It works fine until the game window itself comes up, at which point it gives me an error and crashes. The error said: Failed to login to router server... Error Code: 0 Error Descrip...

I tried my best to translate; anything followed by a (?) means I\'m not completely sure, and any ?\'s outside of parentheses means I don\'t know. 1st picture: Kazoe Yakuman (yakuman for 13+ han hands; I think it\'s capped at sanbaiman if turned off) - On Paarenchan (yakuman for winning as dealer/Eas...

Re:Rules & Questioning

If you\'re writing hand histories, is there a special way to indicate that someone called pon or chi? I usually see a space after the last concealed tile, then any declared pon/chi/kan, with the declared meld in the order they were declared. (I\'ve seen both left-to-right and right-to-left. For a p...

Re:Rules & Questioning

Hello again! Sorry, but I had another question. Suppose East, lost a mangan to another player. Would the person at East pay 8000 or 12000? I thought that East wins 1.5x more, and pays 2x more so East would pay 12000, but I just wanted some clarification. If East had won that mangan, he would win 12...

Re:Riichi/MCR Mahjong & the Nintendo DS

I have both Mahjong Fight Club DS and Yakuman DS. MFC DS is a great game, and I highly recommend it to all Reach Mahjong players. The Mahjong Fight Club series in general is what I would consider to be the definitive electronic Reach Mahjong game. The only problem is that it\'s primarily an arcade g...

Re:Rules & Questioning

However I´m sure I read something somewhere... I forget if it was a different version of mahjong or just someone discussing an idea (sorry, this is pretty vague!) ...but the notion was that an open kong always contains three self-drawn tiles* and could therefore be considered as being equivalent to...

Re:Yakuman Club

BTW does anyone know where the numbering scheme in mahjong originates? I don´t think Ii, Ryan, San and Suu are either standard Chinese or Japanese...? :unsure: (well San is "three" in Japanese - I mean the other ones!) As a fluent Mandarin Chinese speaker, I can tell you that they\'re extremely clo...
