Re: severely in need of an english translation!

Hey Steve. Glad to see a familiar name - or anyone - posting here. The text is cursive and Chinese... but I think it's 打麻將. 打 can mean a ton of different things including "to play [a sport or game]". 麻將 is one of the Mandarin Chinese spellings for "mahjong". Keep calm and play mahjong. :mrgreen: Sim...

Mahjong Soul / Akagi collab event

The Mahjong Soul Youtube channel is teasing a crossover with the Akagi franchise...

...which evidently was announced a month ago. The teaser trailer is new though!

Re: Concise guide to Japanese mahjong for complete beginners (in Yakuza games)

Hi and welcome. The guide was renamed by the new wiki admins some while ago. The old address was re-directing okay previously but I see that it isn't now. The page title is now just 'Mahjong' but that's still the same article that I began. https://yakuza.fandom.com/wiki/Mahjong (I'll update this in ...

Re: Mahjong Block (Tetris)

Yeah, I expect physical games of this era would command high prices from collectors. I only really look at more recent platforms but even Nintendo DS game prices seem to have climbed a lot on eBay so I'm glad I grabbed mine when I did. Also for the mahjong version of this game you'd need the Asian c...

Mahjong Block (Tetris)

Sonic had to play a Tetris game as a forfeit and someone recommended a vintage 8-bit game using mahjong tiles. Majohn Block, also known as AV Dragon Mahjong, was released in Asia for the Family Computer (Famicom) back in 1991. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ha7IhvlVuHM An American version called Po...

Re: Mahjong news

It's sad what happens to forums when spambots are left unchecked.

Saw the same thing happen to a music forum I used to frequent many moons ago. :(

Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

Yeah, but it's kinda weird seeing characters added when all the other graphics are the same as the full-size version. Speaking of which... good-news.jpg Sounds like they are actually working on converting their English-language MJ to run in HTML5. \o/ https://twitter.com/gamedesignjp/status/13538668...
