What's the reason on abortive draws?

Hi there. I\'ve been wondering on the reasons there are abortive draws. Exhaustive draws can\'t be helped (they happen in MCR which has no dead wall, and having 14 less tiles can only increase the issue), but let\'s see. Four Kans: I see the problem with this one is that there\'s no space for more K...

Re:Gamedesign Translation Error

Most likely because you sent someone into the negatives (Dobon rule)

Re:Furiten question

You might be thinking of the house rule where you declare Furiten Riichi, but that one\'s highly non-standard.

Re:Furiten question

Do you mean you enter furiten by your riichi discard, or by missing a tile? If you hand can be complete (complete doesn\'t mean valid, a no-yaku 3+3+3+3+2 is complete) by: a) Any of your discarded tiles b) Any tile discarded after you Reached c) Any tile discarded after the last Chi/Pon/Kan call or ...

Re:San An Kou and San Kantsu

i probably meant that if you had 3 concealed koutsu and you so happen to draw the respective tiles to make all three of them concealed kans which in turn you declare and reveal (am i getting this right, Shirluban?) you are allowed both sanankou and sankantsu. I suppose one would be crazy enough to ...

Re:Greetings and some questions, part 2

Oh, that looks quite interesting. But a bit hard to wrap your head around, maybe. I don\'t know, maybe I just need to see it in action, like see a hand evolve and as the hand discards, see what options the other player is considering.

Do I make sense?

Re:Greetings and some questions

What I meant with the other scenarios is whether you have to pay half or total the insurance if it happens to be a double (or worse) yakuman.

Greetings and some questions, part 2

A different question is how to read the hand reports we can see in this site, and curious on how they are constructed during play, too. Also, I\'d like to get (if they exist) basic strategy primers on basic things like, what to do with your first 13 tiles (ie, how do you decide where you want your h...

Greetings and some questions

Hi there. I just registered on this site although I read it occasionally. Since I like Mahjong (I usually play MCR) and I\'m now learning Japanese, I recently developed an interest in Riichi. Now I got some questions about this, of different kinds. Is there a definite set of rules for this? I\'ve se...
