Re: Starting game points

Everyone was tenpai but since the dealer did not win, the seats rotated and East 2 became East 3. This isn't EMA rules. You have basically four options to handle dealer's repeats (renchan): • Agari: East stays East if he wins the hand. • Tenpai: East stays East if he's tenpai and nobody win. OR if ...

Re: Starting game points

But everyone was Tenpai, not Noten! You reached! And you know better than to do a noten riichi. ;) Good point. Very good point! Then the score-sheet is wrong: if everyone was tenpai East 3 should be East 2-1 ; if everyone was noten, it should be a chonbo and East 2 again. Unless it's agari renchan ...

Re: Starting game points

The notation 東2-1 means: 東: East round 2: second hand (of East round) -1 first continuance (of the second hand of East round) It's the number of continuances with the same player's winds, not the number of counters on the table. Here 東2 was an exhaustive draw with everybody being noten, hence passin...

Re: Starting game points

AFAIK, there are only two hassles when using sticks: handling negative scores, and actually having sticks. The first is so easy to solve it's a non-issue. I concede not having sticks is a huge burden to use them ; it's also nonsensical. :lol: The argument I usually see against sticks is the impossib...

Re: Analysis of a mahjong hand

I mean more different winning tiles.
With the same number of total winning tiles, it gives a slight more chances to win.

Re: Analysis of a mahjong hand

If you discard the 6-bam you get more winning tiles and you can kong the 5-bam . (Discarding the 4-dot would allow to kong both the 3-dot and 5-dot but since otherwise they would be winning tiles it's kinda counter-productive.) Most of the time, when you're East you'd better go for a fast hand to ke...

Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

The kazoe yakuman explanation makes sense in the scoring, but less in the list of the hand's yaku and dora. If you haven't declared riichi, the ura dora (and riichi yaku) should not be scored, which seems to be the case here. The interface is a bit confusing. Writing "dora something" would mean "som...

Re: Translation Test

よんちゃん is Yon-chan. I've no idea how you get Heiyo-chan. Hikari means light (like sun light). I doubt the 6 girls names are supposed to have a meaning. Manjū is Manjū . 尾頭付きタイ seems to be " Bream fish served whole". (see http://tangorin.com/general/%E5%B0%BE%E9%A0%AD%E4%BB%98%E3%81%8D and http://tang...

Re: severely in need of an english translation!

I notice there are a lot of players with the same name.
Is that "anonymous"??
Yes, it is.

Re: Starting game points

The Vegas tournament will use WRC rules. So 30k starting points. Actually, the EMA rulebook doesn't say anything about starting points. So, technically, any value would "conforms to strict 2016 EMA riichi mahjong rules" (as long as you keep oka at 0). Since EMA tournaments usually record the scores ...
