Re:More Thoughts About Menzen Tsumo

First of all, if we’re going to complain about yaku (hand points) that are just based on luck, let’s get rid of the Instant Win hands (tenho and chiho). I know they have infinitely less impact on the game than the subject at hand as I have yet to have ever witnessed either in action. Still, the fac...

Re:POST YOUR STATS

zzo38, what site is that from? It\'s actually a game for Super Nintendo, playing against the computer. I have never played Japanese Mahjong against other people before (mostly because nobody else wants to play, and also a mistake in the mahjong set I have that the back is the same as the front so i...

Re:SURVEY: Rules and Variance

1. I don\'t know about competition rules. 2. I would delete \"all green\", \"big wheels\", \"heaven hand\", \"earth hand\", \"human hand\". And menzen tsumo would be virtual yaku only (it counts 1 han for purpose of requirement but not for scoring, so it would be possible to win with a 0 han hand). ...

Do you read Akagi manga book in Japanese

Do you read Akagi manga book in the original Japanese? I purchase it from a store near where I live in Canada. If there is a word I do not understand I can look it up on WWWJDIC, but it is still possible to understand many things without necessarily knowing all of the words, knowing some of the word...

Re:More Thoughts About Menzen Tsumo

I would prefer to make menzen tsumo a virtual yaku, meaning it counts 1 han only for purposes of requirement but not for purpose of scoring.

Re:Do You Believe in "Nagare"?

Of course luck applies but if it applies to me then it applies nearly equally to other players also (but not always). That is why you need to do various other things such as probability, skill, reading tiles, guessing about other player styles, bluff element, risk, etc.

Re:Hoho,New Little WWYD for ya'll to enjoy and ponder

I would also throw the 9pin so that I might be able to make a tanyao exposed hand, and I already have a red five so it would be worth it to make a exposed hand.

Re:What would you do?

South player (or some other player) might throw another nine if they think you don\'t need it (and you will get yaku for three similar), and there is still four sixes which you can win also (if you do declare riichi), possibly by tsumo. Also, the jackpot is 1900 so I only need 700 points to win. Con...

Re:Ben's Quiz

All are single waits It would depend on various things such as what is already discarded and how many, whether or not I am in the North position, the jackpot, and the playing styles of other players. I don\'t think I would declare riichi on the first hand listed if I am the North position, because I...
