I started playing the PSP version of Mahjong Taikai a few days ago. It has exactly the same range of rule options and rule-sets available.

Last night I made my first Yakuman in stage 5 of the league mode and I beat my previous record score on the DS version. Check this out!

It was the first hand of the match so my score was previously 25,000 pts.

I was east so the Yakuman was worth 48,000 pts.

However I was also the Wareme player and I won by Tsumo so I actually scored 48k x 2 = 96,000 pts.

My new score was 25k + 96k = 121,000 pts. This busted all three opponents and ended the match.

The match was played with the Infure (inflation) rule-set with 30k buy-in, 24k starts, 20-30 Uma, 30k Dobon penalties, 20k Yakitori penalties and bonus chips.

Here's the calculation of my final score (using this method).

121
+24 (Oka bonus for winner)
-30 (buy-in)
+30 (Uma for winner)
+90 (3x30 bonuses for busting all three opponents)
+60 (3x20 Yakitori penalties because the other players won no hands)
+75 (15 chips for completing a Yakuman)
+10 (Sashiuma side-bet)
=380

My final score was equivalent to a profit of 380k pts. :D Gave me a pretty comfortable lead going into the final match.

I was tickled by how the various factors combined to create a "perfect storm" for my opponents. :twisted:

If I had won by Ron then only the discarder would've been busted.

If I hadn't been east then only the dealer would've been busted.

If I hadn't been Wareme then only the Wareme player would've been busted.

If it had been later in the game then the other players might've won some hands.

By the way, which yakuman did you get?

That hand must've left my computer opponents with a Bad Attitude and Howling Mad. :)

It was Suu Ankou - one of the three "easy" ones!

Had to push bravely against that open hand and a Riichi with two Kan Dora. Would've just reset if it all went horribly wrong. ;)

Only just noticed the counter is showing zero - I won on the last tile too!

Thankfully, we never used these:

Though, I did get to try it once. They were very dumb rules.
