Re: Starting game points

Something is not OK on this chart... East 1. Oya wins a small tsumo, North reached. East 1-1. South wins on oya's discard, with a riichi stick from West. East 2. Null hand. Presumably an exhaustive draw since there is a stick thrown from (original) East. All four players were tenpai. So far so good....

Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

Ah, yes. That makes sense. The other thing that led me to sanankou on the cursory glance was those turned face-down tiles, that for me screamed concealed (by analogy with an ankan). But then if it had been concealed you would probably have reached. Kazoe Yakuman, even without hitting the ura. Nice h...

That sanbaiman... At first I thought "if only you would have got tsumo..." then I realized my mistake. :P

Re: severely in need of an english translation!

Yes, that is how Agariyame should work. With respect to Oyanagare, My understanding is like this (but this is were my slight uncertainty resides) - Nashi (ie, never flow, always renchan if it is a draw) - Flow if Noten - Flow (this would make all exhaustive draws rotate winds) But play with this for...

Re: severely in need of an english translation!

- Agariyame
- I'm only 95% sure on this, but it has to do with renchan on draws.
- Head Bump / Double Ron
- As you say, uma
- Kuitan
- Kuikae

Re: Open/closed question

You are right, it refers to the whole hand. The only ones that care only about the specific sets are sanankou and suuankou. Similarly, with something like sanshoku, it will be 1 han if the hand is open, even if the sets themselves are not. If you have any more questions, don't worry. Everyone here w...

Re: Declaring Ron for a chi question

Good question, and welcome to this game. The answer is that yes, you can claim Ron from anyone, not just your kamicha, even if the winning tile goes into a Chii set. :D

Re: So... how do you like to play?

I used the wrong word there. A tanki wait is 2 fu. A guest wind pair is 0 fu. A dragon or paying wind pair is 2 fu. A double wind pair is 4 fu. A double wind tanki agari is therefore a total of 6 fu. Man, counting fu is hard.

So... how do you like to play?

Hi there. I saw the link in Shirluban's sig comparing different rulesets, and I thought about doing this. I know that for many around here they play mostly online / computer game / app and thus you have to adapt, but if one could teach new players the rules (and you're only concerned about the play-...

Re: Shiisan Pūtā (Thirteen Unrelated Tiles)

And you say you had the pair in hand? Good for you.

I don't recognize this yakuman (based on my "no easy escapes / no rewards for a bad hand" principle), so I can't help you much. (That's why I dislike most abortive draws too).

Re: Where do I draw from the dead wall after calling kan?

You draw from the end that is farther away from the live wall, ie, the one closest to the dora indicator. When you replace a tile from the live wall (Players are used to it and they don't physically move tiles around, but it's a good thing as you are learning) you have to add the bottom tile (the la...

Re: severely in need of an english translation!

Not Kodomo. Hmm, that reminds me that I haven't seen season 2... You mean Saki Achiga-hen, right? It's a spinoff series with 16 episodes full of story and less mahjong until you hit 8th or 10th episode... I liked it. The designs and color are closer to the manga than the first season. Did you see S...
