About a couple of videos on youtube

Post by Referee » Mon Apr 25, 2011 7:38 pm

Here's the first one, a song from the Saki anime, and the ultimate test on Riichi knowledge. How many of those terms can you understand?

Speaking of Saki, I saw a video the other day of a hand in Janryumon, and I can't seem to find it again, so if anyone of you guys have found this I'd like to get it linked. It must be the worst knightmare of people in the Saki universe, as the player in the video tsumoes a Suu Ankou on the Rinshan Haitei (it's also Hon Itsu and Dora 7, just in case it wasn't a yakuman)

I can understand most of the song itself, and of course the mahjong terms as well, though some things I don't see how they relate to mahjong ("short skirts and long skirts" (school uniform reference, lol) and "rariho").

Aside from the fact that, just to be clear, "rinshan" and "haitei" never stack (and people get it confused because they misunderstand the terms; the haitei tile is the last tile of the live wall, not of the game, while the rinshan tile is the tile taken from the end of the dead wall as a replacement tile; so even if you made a kan when there was one draw left in the wall, won't make them stack, as the tile you're holding is the rinshan tile, not a haitei tile。Though I think you're probably aware, you just said it figuratively, but just so it's clear), there are videos more epic in Janryuumon:

That second hand is insane, and after daburu daburu riichi too! :shock:

Couple of missed wins on the fourth one - were they too shocked by their awesomeness, or hoping for a 1p?

Oops... Having that many tiles is just plain greedy! :lol:

I think it's the first time I've ever seen a double riichi and an okkake double riichi. When the walls just happen to be stacked like that, you have to begin to ask yourself if God hates you. Also, it is amazing how a "chii" can change things.

I'm not sure why he passed on the win. Probably wanted to tsumo to tobi them all?

It's the least he could have after the guy on his left drew his kan replacement tile!

Yeah, I know about the rinshan haitei, but the reminder is good.

About your videos, for #3 riiching with a kokushi loses all its epicness, sorry.
