As an opponent once said to me on Janline-R (PS3) after a nice streak of hand wins - "Kitsui". (formidable, very strong)

What game was this on? Does it generate that history for you?

I would've liked to see a streak of eight wins for Paa Renchan! Hmm, part of the challenge would be avoiding valuable hands, especially with the dealer bonus.

That looks like the scoreboard for gamedesign.jp's mahjong? https://www.gamedesign.jp/flash/mahjong/mahjong_e.html

But yeah, nice streak! :mrgreen:

Okay, cool. Been so many years since I've used it - and Flash isn't even working for me now.

Oh well, it's not like I need another mahjong game! The world's a better place for having a free web-based Flash game in English though.

I will say " A perfect game. Well done", which is exactly what you said to me 4 and a half years ago.

Does that count?

There are various definitions for Paa Renchan, but most commonly you specifically need to win eight hands in a row and - despite the name - Renchan from dealer Tenpai draws don't count. Some definitions require all eight wins as east, but the common one lets you count earlier wins as a non-dealer (before you take dealership during your win streak).

A few too many dealer Mangan Ron wins could easily end the match, also playing with the two-Han minimum rule would be a hindrance to using cheap wins once the Honba counter is wound up. Perhaps the biggest barrier would be that this optional rule is not widely adopted, although it's a relatively common feature in video-games.

Most prominently it's included in the Mahjong Fight Club games - I found a (noisy) video of someone getting it.

It only shows the final win though - it happened to be a double Ron.

(The opponent scores are still fairly high there because they were playing with 30k starts.)
