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

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...

Re: Mahjong news
