M-League

Who's been following the M-League? I'll admit I came to it quite late, so I only caught the tail end of the regular season and now the finals series. Our very own Garthe has written a couple articles for RiichiReporter on the finals series: https://riichireporter.com/m-leagues-march-madness/ https:/...

Re: Mahjong Fight Club Grand Master

Ahh this is the one they've been playing as ads on the streams! (can't remember if it was FreshLive, or Abema, or both) Really makes me want to get back into MFC. Any kind of console release at this point would be nice, not sure we've had one in a number of years now. Switch maybe? :lol:

Re: Mahjong Wait Quiz

In short... Life happened :roll: Had to pull back on Mahjong for a bit while I got other stuff sorted out. And moved back to Aus in the middle of it all. All this has meant I've dropped off a lot in my mahjong skills, but working on getting them back! Ah, I hadn't seen the Speed Chin'itsu one before...

Re: Mahjong Wait Quiz

It could help to make the interface smaller, so it would fit in the window. Thanks for checking it out! Would you happen to have a screenshot of the issue you're having with the UI? It should in theory scale with window size properly. (Unless this is about the word "Hand" getting cut off ...

Mahjong Wait Quiz

It's been ages since I posted here :O But I'm back! (well, I have been for a month, just haven't posted <.< >.>) and just wanted to let people know about a Mahjong Wait Quiz I put together, initially for my own study, but figured it would be useful to others as well. It still needs a bit of UI work ...

Re: Optional Rules

http://saikouisen.com/rule.php Looking things up I had the wrong "Saikouisen." I was referring to the tournament of the same name which is actually run by Kindai Mahjong rather than the Saikouisen Pro Association as I had assumed. The tournament did use an Oka. Rules listed here (in Japan...

Re: Optional Rules

Oka : I believe oka to be mostly a parlor rule, to ensure the winner wins enough to pay the table fee. Unfortunately both the NPM and the Saikouisen use it in their tournaments. JPML doesn't, at least not in their A rules. I don't remember if the B rules had it or not though, I THINK they didn't. A...

Re: Optional Rules

I would even say that Oka is a gambling-related bonus while Uma is one designed for sensible placement bonuses. I don't think that Oka and the lopsided point spread it creates have any place in competitive mahjong. If you want Shanyu, you can still use it without Oka. Yeah I personally really don't...

Re: Optional Rules

I believe Oka is only calculated after the match is finished at the same time as the Uma. I actually would lump the two together as they are both extra(or less) points based on your finishing position. They're also used a lot in tournaments. Bankruptcy is only an issue in a tournament/league setting...

Re: 2-player variants?

The playing two hands each actually bares some resemblance to Washizu Mahjong (at least the version seen in Akagi) where 3 out of the 4 tiles are transparent and you work with the player to your right as a team, which makes the whole feeding yourself triplets less of a threat since your opponent can...

I can try asking tomorrow. Nice, I'm looking forward to see how it's handeld in tournament rulesets. :-) -- Simon Sorry it took me so long to get to this, had a busy week or so. Anyways I asked at the parlour today and the response was that in general in tournaments it's just a dead hand. ("ag...

Re: WWYD 2014-07-28

I'd chuck the non-red 5-dot. You're in iishanten already, and if you draw anything out of the 1-4 of dots or East you're in tenpai. Or if you get desperate you can pon East and go for a shampon wait on the 2-3 pin. Keeping the pair of 5p just because one is red feels like a trap. They're not connect...

Re: World Riichi Championship 2014 - rules!

* False ron without revealing tiles: Is it so prevalent in Japanese rulings to punish this with chombo, or would a dead hand suffice? I was advocating the chombo before, but I'm not so sure anymore whether that's the most common ruling. Needs research. -- Simon In most parlours in Japan you'll prob...
