Mahjong

I found a series of videos on you tube by HanaYoriUta in English which provide a comprehensive walkthrough of Japanese 'Riichi' Mahjong.

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

After watching these videos and reviewing the Anime: 'Akagi: The Genius who Descended Into Darkness' a few more times , I feel like I {finally} have an understanding of how to play the game~!

Encouraged by this newfound knowledge, and despite not being able to read nor speak much Japanese I have started playing
Pro Mahjong Kiwame 64 (Japan)

( Click to show/hide )

However this is the game I really want to play :
Janryumon

.. but sadly haven't been able to figure out how to download the necessary program yet ...

If you don't play Mahjong yet, I highly recommend you give it a try.

It's so much fun~!

Re: Mahjong

There's really a market for a Mahjong game on Steam with an AMAZING tutorial system. A game meant for teaching English speakers the game.

Re: Mahjong

Majong is quite simple, I figured it out on my own after acquiring a few 18+ roms for the Famicom.

Oddly enough, I took an interest in learning how to play "Go" awhile back, seems like an awesome game.

Contact HanaYoriUta? -
Or are you talking about a game that already exists?

As HYU points out in his walkthrough, there are many variants of Mahjong rules, as well as translations of the terms used in the game.
Based upon those facts, what would be amazing to me would be a comprehensive cross - referencing of all known rules and terms, to bring it all together in one place.

I had a really hard time understanding exactly what was going on in the game, with most of the problem being the lack of decent instructions in English.

I'd be like:
'Ah, I see what's going on .. {then suddenly something different happens} .. uh, on second thought, no - I still have no idea what just happened there..

Trying to learn by watching Akagi felt like trying to learn to swim by diving from the high board into the deep end ~ I suppose some people could do that but not I.

18+ ROMs helped you to learn?
Is that what they call 'Girl Power?'

Re: Mahjong

Okay, no I was thinking of the version that's kinda like dominoes, not the multiplayer one. THAT one I've tried to figure and failed on multiple occasions.

Re: Mahjong

SC do you mean the 'solitaire' version of Mahjong, or are you talking about Go?

Re: Mahjong

I know the 4 part video series I posted at the top are lackluster,



but if you can possibly manage to sit through them, you will likely be able to start playing shortly afterwords.

Here's a link to a free online Japanese Mahjong game that plays well {although it's not as pretty as Pro Mahjong Kiwame 64 (Japan) but w/e} and it also has a breakdown of the different combinations of tiles and their point values at the bottom of the page {scroll down below the game table to see them}; oddly this very same game is found on many different sites but this is the only one I found that gives any explanations.
I hope this is helpful.

Re: Mahjong

I learned the rules of riichi mahjong specifically sometime in high school, but I never got a chance to play it against anything but AI opponents, never had access to physical tiles and I only ever knew one other person who knew how to play. It's a fun game, but I haven't played in years so I might not still know how to play.

Re: Mahjong

I'm envious; all I ever got to play were card or board games when I was young.
Sure there are some good ones and I'm not putting them down but overall there were very few that could keep my interest for long.
Once I realized what a great game Mahjong is I knew it would be one of those games capable of holding my interest.

What Mahjong games do you play?
Can you please post a link to them?

Re: Mahjong

I haven't played in years, so I can't remember, mostly just some old famicom/nes games and a few Japanese websites, Tenhou was really good, but it's all in Japanese, there's tons of translation guides if you just look up like "Tenhou mahjong guide" or something.

Also, the Yakuza games on ps3/4 have mahjong in them in addition to being all around fun games.

Thanks DM, I checked out Tenhou but wasn't able to get it going; this is probably due to the fact my comp is nearly 10 years old.
I've heard about the Yakuza games and they sound pretty good, but it's out of my reach financially.

SO I was trying for what is probably the 15th time to get Janryumon when I discovered a post saying that the game has been discontinued, and ported to mobile devices in a different, updated, more realistic form.
And I was like:

NOOOOOOOO~!!
I want the 'old' version, the really fun - looking one with the awesome animations, great soundtrack, etc.
I would have bought that game if it was still available ...


Anyway, I was playing Pro Mahjong Kiwame 64 (Japan) {best Mahjong on RU, in my opinion} and got a MONSTER hand which I won by Ron {incorporating another player's dealt tile into your hand}, which included a combination of 7 Dragon and Wind tiles {bonus tiles}, and even though I didn't have the Dora {special bonus tile}, it still came up Hane Man~!
{a hand worth 12000 - 18000 points}

I wish I had taken screenshots, I was positively on fire that night.
I was on top for all 4 rounds and won the game {for the very first time}, a great feeling.
