Re: Mahjong at the movies?

Well, this wasn't a movie but it was live on television.
LAW & ORDER SVU, about a week ago.
When I noticed the episode had to do with Chinatown in New York, I was hoping.....and sure enough......

Re: It's the first time I manage something like this.

Referee: you can say whatever you want, but... Perfect Game!! I will say " A perfect game. Well done", which is exactly what you said to me 4 and a half years ago. http://reachmahjong.com/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=53374&p=58415&hilit=Parenchan#p58411 Bart: I would've liked to see a streak of eigh...

Re: Intermediate Riichi Strategies by Feng

Been reviewing some of the other stuff written by mrfeng. Although he had only 41 posts on the forum over a 15 month period, 10 related to educating me on "another gameplay question" and 20 were commentary on WWYD.
There were many lengthy good discussions.
I learned a lot. Thank you, mrfeng.

Re: Intermediate Riichi Strategies by Feng

Started to read it but it's going to take a while.

Is Feng the same mrfeng who is also formerly of this parish? (Forum?)

Re: There must be a better way!

They could have at least been professional and used a nice red crayon.
Or used the blanks somehow with non-permanent ink.
(Isn't there a way to clean that up?)
I see Flowers. Maybe it's a Chinese set? Hong Kong?
Time for the Mahjong Police to make an appearance.

Re: Yakuman Club Revisited

Finally got my 2nd one of the Big Three Dragons.
First one was 2 years ago but this time I was EAST and nobody called riichi while I was going for it.

Re: another mahjong book

" a couple of quid ", is that about two and a half dollars, American?
I still find the 2 best books to be Scott Miller's, and the strategy section of the Whitney book.
The online book by Daina Chiba is also very good but my heart will always belong to Bart's guide.
Ha Ha!

Re: oh boy!

Well, 3 months have gone by and another city now has a riichi mahjong group. Ended up teaching 5 ladies and we have been playing regularly twice a week. Hope they can keep it going when I'm not around in the winter.

Revisiting a revisited thread after a 5 year void, this one sure racked up the points. Probably my nicest.

Chinitsu (flush)
Ittsuu (straight)
iipeiko (double run)

Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

The main reason Ignatius and I didn't give the Android version of the UNBALANCE game a better recommendation was that it could only be played in vertical mode. I see they corrected that in the PS4 version. Ignatius has also provided an English translation. http://reachmahjong.com/en/forum/viewtopic....

Re: No matter what you cut, it works perfectly

I didn't get much sleep last night thinking about this. It didn't help. Lets see if I understand this correctly. I have a closed tenpai hand, probably for a yakuman. I draw a tile. It's not the winner. A piece of junk. I can now discard any tile in my hand, even keeping that piece of junk, and I wil...

Re: Riichi Scoring Website / Android Camera App

Both of the good ones can do that, but in different ways.
One does it with the Japanese characters, the other with the English pronunciation of the Japanese characters

Re: Riichi Scoring Website / Android Camera App

I have not noticed any difference when choosing those options. I did notice the RENAME button which allows you to rename those options. Why you would want to do that I do not know. As for the million koku, I assume that is when the total of the crack tiles in a flush must be 100 or more. Quite hard ...
