Re:My new (old) Japanese tile-set

Thats a nice and pretty unusual set there :D The backs are bamboo thats a fact i got a bamboo set and i looks exactly like that. Also the \"faces\" can be bone , because it was the popular setting as i know (bamboo+bone). Also the bamboo suit tiles look a little like in chinese versions rather then ...

Re:Any Non-'Beginner' books out there?

Well like http://nnkr.jp/ it\'s not half bad as i see it and, associated with it there are many mahjong blogs, for example http://blog.livedoor.jp/biglipbabby/archives/cat_21055.html this little article with a what would you discard and the reason why THAT should be discarded was pretty good. In the...

Re:Any Non-'Beginner' books out there?

2dan? i think you are confusing 2kyuu with 2 dan (they are not nearly the same....) Also on the topic of books, i have yet to find a book that is good for us mid-tier players. It\'s not a bad idea to browse the various japanese \"what would you discard\" pages and the many mahjong blogs that are ass...

Re:Jan Ryu Mon

Well there are days when i hate janryumon and/or tenhou because of the randomness. Last time i got beaten on tehnhou and got last place at the table while i didn\'t play into anyones hand...also the player who was 3rd didn\'t won a single round. I got to 4th place just because i was the dealer at th...

Re:Jan Ryu Mon

the \"new\" buttons are for rated, play (whatever that means) and can only be accessed by 25000 or more points. But is seriously don\'t have a clue as of how day work cause i dont really have 25000 for trying it (back when i started janryumon i got like 50K points but i all spend that on accessory\'...

Re:Dealer continuance & 5 sticks

well yea declaring false ron all over the time would be damn rude. Anyway we are drifting off from the main topic so i just stop my theory\'s at this point :)
Just play fair every time and nothing can go wrong.

Re:Dealer continuance & 5 sticks

Hmmm but this means i can even declare a kan while i do not have the 4 tiles for is (just 2 of the same tile for the middle 2 which are revealed when the kan is declared). So i think something is wrong with this \"if do not get caught it\'s not against the rules\" thing :) . But then again a false k...

Re:Dealer continuance & 5 sticks

I thought that reaching with a noten hand is against the rules :P but maybe there are situations when you would rather take the possible chonbo for it rather then let someone win with a sanbaiman (for example you see the other player has called like 4 tiles and that makes him/her a dora 8, in that s...

Re:My hand of the week

Re:Dealer continuance & 5 sticks

Except with riichi. If you declare riichi and become furiten, you stay furiten for the whole hand. ehh thats good to know, seems like i was ignorant there sorry about that. And back to the main topic: i think you can riichi without even having the 2han but to make sure i think i will try it out in ...

Re:Dealer continuance & 5 sticks

yea sorry i wrote the last reply at 3o\'clock so i mixed up tenpai and iishanten :P as for passing on and being furiten it depedns. If you pass up your drawed tile you are furiten for the rest of the hand as you said. But if you pass a ronnable tile you are just furiten till your next draw. Thats wh...

Re:Dealer continuance & 5 sticks

I you reach and pass upon a tile the only thing that happens is that you become furiten for that tile till your next draw (after that you can still ron-on it). And yes it\'s still considered tenpai, almost every situation where you are 1 away from win (ii shanten) is considered tenpai even if there ...

Re:The Ultimate Mahjong Table?

Don\'t joke on that hiro, i saw somewhere on youtube that there actually IS a table that counts points for you :P You just need to put the tiles in the designated place and have them face up and then the voice from the table will just count your han\'s and say how much points does it worth. Also i d...
