Re:Combining MCR and Riichi (a thought experiment)

Well yea but it\'s a chinese variant at WSoM :P Maybe it\'s a blunt way to put it but it resembles more to MCR then riichi does or am i wrong again ? :P (I didn\'t do any research i just gathered my memories about WSoM and MCR so i can be wrong.)

Re:Hikkake reach

Hmmm i think this hikkake reach is quite good :) everyone likes the tricks the any game can offer, and this is just an other way to backstab your friends in a friendly game of mahjong (And everyone has to admit that they like to trick their friends for a game no ? :D)

Re:Hey hey just a shout out. & 'kyushukyuhai'

To be honest i don\'t really understand why people even call kyuushuu if i have 9 different terminals and honors i think it\'s worth walking the tightrope and going for kokushi, but thats just me i guess :P

Re:Combining MCR and Riichi (a thought experiment)

The problem is that both ruleset is defined , and polished and there is really no reason to modify them in a large scale i think. I myself prefer that riichi has just a few hands they are easy to memorize and by this way you can guess what pattern the other player is trying to get by their discards ...

Re:Reading Hands on Jan Ryu Mon

The flashing dora and kan dora are not really spoiling the player. But the riichi sub options (you can see what type of wait you can go for) is really too much, i found myself playing slower after playing janryumon which was strange at first but then after some games on tenhou i got me regular speed...

Re:East Only Games

Yea i like east only because of the speed and dislike it because of the luck factor. Basically i really hate being north (it\'s the most detested place for me to sit ), and in east only games this hate is doubled up :P I mean i hate to be the last dealer and that every tile can be a chi to the east....

Re:Jan Ryu Mon

com\'on ppl you connect to japan through a hub and then connect to japan AGAIN and also there are tons of people that use vpn so laggs and disconnects happen because of these reasons stated above. I think we should be grateful that we have a free service, that enables us to play the game :)

Re:Reading Hands on Jan Ryu Mon

Monadology check the janryumon thread at the online mahjong section there is a link to packetiX vpn which connects you to a japanese hub and gives you a jap IP otherwise there is no way for playing it (there is not really a secure an free proxy that allows programs through it except browsers) And if...

Re:Reading Hands on Jan Ryu Mon

yea the game highlights the dora with flashing effects and also displays your waits and wait options when you are in tenpai it\'s really good, and the \"slow\" pace is good i think it\'s a more realistic that way. Also the game does not highlight the dangerous discards instead it highlight adjacent ...

Re:Portable options .... Mahjong Cards?

The game looks nice :D but i won\'t trade off the janryumon for that of course :D also i think they shoud make a mini mahjong set with a table, that way the shuffling would be handled quite well and it could be quite fun using a mini auto table with affordable price :P The cards seem to be a good wa...

Re:Instant Regret!

Well Barticle i think i would be in RAGE leaving the room for a couple of minutes :D But also just think about it in a different context, like what face would your friends make when they just upgrade their pon-s into a kan and you ron them for a kokushi on their wind :D i think THAT would be pricele...

What set do you prefer?

The question is an easy one, what type of mahjong sets do you like? For example you like plastic black tiles, or bamboo traditional sets. As for me I like my bamboo set, it\'s not shaped perfectly so filpping the dora and holding together 14 tiles can be a pain but i still like it. Why you ask, beca...

Re:History of Mahjong: Cheating

well ian that happens, when you flip over a dora, but the quality of the set really matters there. If it\'s a bamboo set and not shaped perfectly it will happen a lot, and also you can\'t hold 14 tiles together (because they just slide off) So i recommend trying flipping over a plastic or other type...

Re:Jan Ryu Mon

just download and use a PacketiX VPN it connects to a free japanese hub and tadaaa you can download the game and play. I\'m playing by the name Ruro there and i really enjoying it :) I hope it will stay free because it would be so strange to return to a 2d mj for me now :P
