Re:Misspellings in mahjong docs

Hehe i hate hephburn style because it just can\'t spell the thing that has triple sounds like yuuutsu (yea 3 u :D ) and just writing things as your would like in hiragana is the best way i think. And ou and other \"long\" sounds are a problem only if your native language is english or something that...

Re:Misspellings in mahjong docs

well it\'s pretty much a strange concern because most of the people over the internet can\'t even spell kokushi musou :D Also there are many types in which every hand is called. And itsu is better then just saying straight (in my opinion at least). Also japanese language doesn\'t use spaces so its\'...

Re:WWYD 5/30

Seems like 1-dot is the most unneeded thing here, going for tanpin is always a good option i think. And if luck is with us then this hand can progress into a real monster. (1 colored hmmmm)

Re:Sites

It cost me 2 days but yea somehow i got janryumon to a working stage(it only works for me if i just a PacketiX VPN client) Nice game for sure, reaaally spectacular but there are some little problems what i must mention.

Re:Quick rules question

I think you can\'t because that would give you +1 tile and that seems totally off. And there is an other problem...this hand is composed of 14 tiles (and riichi uses 13 in hand and 1 drawn). About declaring kan while in reach : it\'s perfectly allowed. the only time you can\'t declare kan on your re...

Re:How to discard in a

It\'s been a tradition in my dorm to turn the red dragon around so the bottom faces your opponent, and we call it the Chun Beam, the ultimate weapon, and the white dragon is a shield against that so if you have it, you\'re ok XD This is a hilarious but funny way to play :D I always visualised mahjo...

Re:game recording for analysis. Good or bad idea?

Hmm it seems really should make a video, because for about a week i just suck, i get ron\'d at the 3rd or 4th round (the guy had an ii pei ko given to him at the very start and i was waiting for my green dragon to have a dai san gen). The real pain comes from that i don\'t really know what is wrong ...

Then if you tried it out let us know your experiences :D Because i hope it\'s not one of those everything for the graphics nothing for the gameplay type of games.

Re:How to discard in a "stylish" way?

As for me I like to smash the tiles, I know it\'s not too polite but hearing the classical \"DON\" sound of the tiles as the bamboo hit\'s the table is damn satisfying. As for drawing, i tend to hold and draw tiles that my index and ring finger are supporting the two sides and my middle finger is on...

Re:Confusing name question!

Is there any kind of a system that you use when you combine these expressions? I mean it\'s fairly common to hear about tanpin and such, but i never heard of pintan etc etc. So is there any kind of a logic or it follows some kind of a traditional way ?

Re:game recording for analysis. Good or bad idea?

I\'m not really sure if i should make a video, my english IS bad, and i\'m a really low level player. As for these % things, i\'m pretty interested. Because it\'s seems that chance in mahjong is rather different from the chance factor in cards. What i mean is that when you pick a card from a deck yo...

Re:WWYD 5/16

Well yea it\'s not a big deal to just get ronned by the opposite player but, who knows maybe this is the last turn, or maybe you won\'t even get a good hand at the next round, everything is quite possible, depending of the situation. I think throwing the 9-bam buys you precious time, and who know ma...
