Re: Discard reading

Tenpai status could be inferred by other info, like the time to discard, which tiles are draw-discarded, if the discard is dangerous/dora, ...
But on the 5th discard it's very far-fetched, and the winning tiles can be anything.

Re: Mahjong Wait Quiz

Seems nice. :)

It could help to make the interface smaller, so it would fit in the window.

Re: another gameplay question

Pretty much the same than Ignatius, but I might not riichi considering the lead is quite slim. Going for toitoi / all pungs is quite the same than for chitoi / 7pairs, only going farther away from tenpai, so I won't advise it. If the hand doesn't improves in a few turns, I will consider opening it w...

Re: Why I can't Yaku

Hello and welcome. It looks like your hand doesn't have any yaku. A yaku is a scoring pattern required in order to win. The allowed yaku varie slightly from rules to rules ; you can find a list of yaku commonly used here: https://ooyamaneko.net/mahjong/bookcmp/view.php?book=WRCR_2015&chap=6.5 Here, ...

Re: Mahjong at the movies?

There are a few mahjong tables at the end of Banzai... just to have a bunch of luggage dropped on them.

Re: Newbie introduction

The junk mat might be a little small for tiles that size, but I doubt you'll find much bigger ones. And if you do, it won't fit on a bridge table, even less on most regular tables.

You can also just use whatever piece of fabric as a mat, if you're ok with not having ledges.

Re: another gameplay question

Opening the hand would considerably decrease its value, limiting it to tanyao only. While a closed hand has tanyao + riichi + maybe menzen tsumo + maybe ura dora. It's also possible to kan the 8m and 5s after riichi for more doras. Without riichi, it's also possible to draw the last 7s and get sanan...

Re: Illegal riichi situation

A player has to reveal his/her hand in only two situations: - she wins - the hand ends in a draw, and she declares to be tenpai. In both cases she still can refuse to show her hand, but then she'll get a penalty (false win without showing -> dead hand ; noten-riichi -> chonbo). She should not disclo...

Re: Why can’t i win with this hand?

You can see the list of yaku here: https://ooyamaneko.net/mahjong/bookcmp/view.php?book=WRCR_2015&chap=6.5 Depending on the exact rule used, there might be a few differences, like some yakuman being scored double yakuman if they end on a special wait, or allowing Nagashi mangan (discarding only 1, 9...

Re: Kong during riichi

I would be surprised if you could get more combinations with less tiles to play with.
