Re: Mahjong Wait Quiz

Hi Ozball; Good to see you back, where you been for 4-1/2 years? I've made a lot of progress since then, which naturally, you had a hand in helping me along. Took a look at your wait quiz, reminded me of an app called speed chinitsu, which I posted about a few months after you left, back in 2014. In...

Re: another gameplay question

Well, she did follow your advice, somewhat, and discarded the 9-bam . Drew another 5-dot and tossed the other 9-bam . Then someone discarded a 2-bam . She got impatient and took it, tossing her 3-dot , trying for tenpai. That left her with, 2-dot 2-dot 4-dot 5-dot 5-dot 1-bam 1-bam :north :north :no...

Re: another gameplay question

Screenshot_20190308-084336.jpg I was presented with this from one of my group for my opinion on what to go for and what to discard. Would like yours also. It is East 3 of East round only, she is ahead by 1700 pts, and will deal on next hand (maybe). Her thoughts: aim for riichi or go for toi-toi (o...

Re: Why I can't Yaku

A little late here, but this is a sheet I give to all the ladies that I teach the game to when they actually start playing, after learning the terminology. It helps them learn when it is valid for them to open their hand, which seems to be a problem for most beginners. They often refer to it during ...

Re: severely in need of an english translation!

Wow! Over a year has gone by without needing a translation.
This has been showing up on my tablet the last few days.
Has to do with an app. (17 days?, 4 times?, monthly meeting?)
Thanks for any help.

Re: This is a bit too big for my bathtub

Interesting.
But how do you stop the wall from falling over providing you even get it built in the first place?
One Rinshan Kaihou, SLAM!, and there goes the game.

Re: I just couldn't resist!

Stopped into a thrift store on my way to Arizona and picked up this 1923 Chinese mahjong set in a cardboard box with all wooden pieces. The racks (5) are also wood and the scoring sticks are plastic, I think, flexible, and in 4 colors. Red, blue, green, and yellow. The cracks are all red, dots blue,...

Re: Saki-咲 Live Action!!

UPDATE: which most of you probably know already. After trying for quite a while, unsuccessfully, to find the SAKI 2017 movie online, and then only finding it in Japanese or Indonesian subtitles, neither of which did me any good, I was finally able to watch it with English subtitles. It's 1 hour and ...

Re: Newbie introduction

But, I would like large pieces for my hands, and older eyes. They don't have to be these competition pieces I mentioned above, but I'd like a decent set, color, quality. I don't want to "upgrade" to better stuff. What do you like to use and play with? Here is a picture of the set I play w...

I believe this is what you were looking for.
It's still on YouTube in one video instead of 4 parts.
A good watch.

Thanks guys, The ladies got inspired and decided to have their own mahjong party with the entire group. Fun day for all. It was a good feeling, sitting there, outdoors, playing riichi, observing and listening to what I created, occasionally finding it hard to believe. You guys were there too, in spi...
