Re: severely in need of an english translation!

Thanks for that. I think the フーロメンツ means it's an open meld. So it must be an open meld in both cases. I'm pretty sure the first one means the smallest tile number in the meld. So if it was a 234s, then it would be 2. If a 567p, then it would be 5. And so on. From your translation of the second, I w...

Re: Junchan

Hey guys thanks! If I hadn't read this thread recently, then I wouldn't have recognised how close I was to forming this lovely yaku this evening. This is the iOS app, Mahjong Nagomi HD. http://i.imgur.com/tw8e2mV.jpg So we have: ⋅ Riichi (立直): 1 han ⋅ Ippatsu (一発): 1 han ⋅&n...
