The international title was confirmed today in the Kinda Funny Games Showcase stream as "Judgment".

It'll release next summer and include an English dub (dual audio options, I think).

Re: This is a bit too big for my bathtub

Re: Mahjong at the movies?

Tonegawa proposes Human Mahjong ("designed to foster betrayal, deception and dissent among the players" - Wikipedia). This is from episode 4 of the anime Chūkan Kanriroku Tonegawa (a.k.a. Mr Tonegawa: Middle Management Blues ) based on the Kaiji manga spin-off. Tonegawa1.jpg Tonegawa2.jpg
