Re: Suu Ankou: Should I Try?

Considering the pond, there is only one 5 remaining so only the next player can take it, and he obviously doesn't want it since he already has discarded two of them. Unless, of course, if someone rons it: • North is furiten. • East has discarded 2 and 8. Either he's furiten, or waiting for something...

Re: Hi! I am a Japanese who loves riichi mahjong!

Hello and welcome! I've discovered mahjong from an old PC game by Berrie Bloem, using Chinese Classical rules. I've later switched to Riichi rules thanks to Tom Sloper's game "Shanghai Second Dynasty". I must admit I rarely play nowadays, but I'm still quite active in the mahjong world. Is there any...

Re: need an explanation, please

I don't see how you can get riichi/pinfu/dora for 3900 pts. (30fu-3 han) If you tsumo, it's 20fu-4 han for 5200 pts. (adding CSD to riichi/pinfu/dora) If you ron, it's 30fu-2 han for 2000pts. (pinfu yaku does not count anymore, right?) It does. You can win pinfu by ron. Riichi + pinfu + dora + ron ...

Re: Query re rules

Some rules specify if you can declare riichi with less than 1000 points... just to say you can't. Of course, this is only when bankruptcy is applied, since the question doesn't make sense when negative score is allowed. Bankruptcy = you can't pay points you don't have. Declaring <1000pts riichi = be...

Re: forum update

I'm change the captcha... again.

This time, I'm tring the Sortables captcha. It works by asking the new user/spam bot to sort a list of words into two categories.

Feel free to suggest your own lists!

Re: Question from beginer

Hello and welcome.

At riichi mahjong, you need to make special patterns (called yaku) to win.
Here your hand doesn't have any yaku, so you can't win.

See the list of common yaku:

Re: forum update

Ok, I've set it to "infinite", despite this setting being "not advised".
Looks like it works fine and fast, so I'll let it this was until someone reports the recent topics list killed their pet hamster or something. :lol:

You can use your browser's zoom to achieve pretty much the same thing.

Re: WWYD Jigoku

I was more thinking about 2-bam to maximize the chances for ryūiisō, but it would likely result in furiten. Looking again, discarding green-dra gives good chances for sūankō, in top of pure hand + tanyao and/or sanankō. So, for winning I'll discard green-dra , for fun I'll discard 2-bam , depending ...

Re: Hand requirement (Ryanpeikou) question

Edit: I see, base points of some kind. I thought base points had a 2000 pt maximum. Base points are limited to 2000 for hands worth less than 5 han . For 5+ han hands, the base value is higher, thus the higher final value. See http://ooyamaneko.net/mahjong/bookcmp/view.php?book=WRCR_2015&chap=6.1 (...
