Re: forum update

You can use your browser's zoom to achieve pretty much the same thing.
Please tell me if it suits your needs.

Re: "Mahjong Tricks" on Google Play

I think the term you need is "live tiles".

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 (...

Re: Hand requirement (Ryanpeikou) question

Hello and welcome!

Ryanpeikō is simply twice iipeikō (on a concealed hand).
I've never heard of a family restriction for it.

So, yes, your hand should give ryanpeikō.

It adapts to the window size. Your second screenshot is what you get on any browser when you reduce the window's width (and a 150% zoom !?). It's supposed to make the site easier to read and navigate on small screens. Mobile browsers can either match websites with their screen size (2nd pic), or ren...

Re: forum update

I've updated the forum to the latest version of phpBB. The style have changed too, mainly because old styles ain't compatible. I've tried to make it look like close to the old style, but you'll notice some differences. Most notably the posts icons: - Red dragon <-> announces - Heart <-> sticky - Whi...

Re: WWYD 2016-03-11

7-crak
I'd hope to turn this hand into toitoi + sanankō, or even sūankō. :o
So it's a choice between 5m and 7m.
Keeping 5m means I can switch to iipeikō + menzen tsumo; it's not that great, but not that bad either.
Discarding 5m means I'm not even tenpai.

Re: Max Mahjong

Can someone explain to me the "safari" tile? The only explanation I can come up with is the symbol on the iphone safari app or the needle on a compass, which also shows EWNS, referring to the four wind tiles. Guns (the 1 bam), bullets (the other bams), a hunting safari (for red dragons?), who knows...

Re: Max Mahjong

I think replacing the dots by stars and bamboos by bullets will really help. Also, using dices with 1 and 5 painted in red, instead of 1 and 4, is a major improvement. No, seriously, the classic tiles my look complex at first glance, by only 11 tiles actually require special attention: 4 to 9 man, w...

Re: Discard while defending

Agreed, 8-bam is the safest tile. And by "safest" I don't mean it's actually safe. In this situation, you have very few info to defend (riichi on the 5th discard), pretty much all your tiles are as dangerous, it's early in the game (East 1), your hand can progress quickly and can worth quite some po...
