Re:Open Tanyao

I like red fives! @shirluban That\'s interesting! Actually the first ever set I bought was from Hamleys (for those who don\'t know it\'s a famous toy shop in London) and that had red fives with scoring sticks - it was the full Japanese works. The book that came with it even described Japanese rules....

Re:Open Tanyao

@ silent observer Sorry, I think you misunderstood my comment or I didn\'t word it correctly. What I meant is that I am a mediocre player and if open tanyao was permitted, I would play it in all the wrong places and probably cause a lot of irritation to players on the table. I\'m fully aware that I\...

Re:Open Tanyao

Hey Tina! Thanks for the response! Especially the backstory to why the decision was made in the first place! I have to agree with Tom, that the reasoning behind the decision is sound! Despite my journalistic stir, I strongly advocate a standard rule set. Without a standard rule set, I don\'t think r...

Re:Riichi/MCR Mahjong & the Nintendo DS

Do you just have a regular Nintendo DS or a DSi? They have a fun mahjong game on DSiware. But it may only be available on a Japanese DSi...

I have Mahjong Fight Club for the DS (also in Japanese) and that\'s pretty good for the commute.

Re:Linguistics of Mahjong

Thanks for the comment! Yeah I suspect you\'re right. The World Series had three languages, Japanese, Mandarin and English. Interestingly, I don\'t think Cantonese was one of the official languages but I may be wrong... I used to be a strong supporter of the opinion that mahjong should be taught in ...

Re:Mahjong Fight Club Wii?

Re:Tip for non-Japanese / non-Chinese readers

Google translate is a terrifyingly good tool. I use it a lot to navigate foreign language sites.

Let\'s just hope it doesn\'t put me out of a job in the future...! :S
