Hi again! Another player up for some Q&A is Star (=★=) from Discord channel! 1. How did you start playing Riichi? I started playing when I was in college (ages ago). At first I’ve played mostly with friends from school, then I graduated to “furii” mahjong (i.e., playing with strangers at mahjong parlors). I’ve become more … More Krabman interviews…. Episode 30
Hey! My guest today is Muller from Mahjong Discord channel! 1. How did you start playing Riichi? After watching the Akagi anime I started learning the rules by playing the Gamedesign Flash game towards the end of 2009 and a few times throughout 2010. Judging by the screenshots I have, I started playing on Tenhou … More Krabman interviews…. Episode 29
Hi! This is a little post to celebrate my promotion to 5d! My dreams are coming true… I must say that Tokujou isn’t as intimidating as I thought. I think I can finally call myself a tokujou player. I still need to work on consistency because I make serious, lethal mistakes and Tenhou keeps getting … More Another milestone!
Bonjour! I hate French but whatever… More Tenhou screenshots coming your way! SPEED VS VALUE Do we call this? I decided to pass and wait but I think Yakuhai Chanta is enough for E3, and we rely heavily on Yakuhai anyway. A quick win sets up nicely for E4. Not sure about calling Haku … More Tenhou Stuff XXI
Greetings! Guess what? I’ve found some new Tenhou screenshots to discuss! 1. TENPAI IMPROVEMENT Is it better to insta-Riichi or wait to improve our hand? I won’t consider keeping 3p because of 1p in our discards. 23 234 55667 145678 are our tiles of interest. 3x1s 2x4s 1x5s 1x6s 4x8s 11 tiles in total which … More Tenhou Stuff XX
Evening! Today’s post is mostly focused on Riichi judgement. Feedback appreciated!!! 🙂 1. RIICHI JUDGEMENT I think it’s best to Riichi. We have some tiles to upgrade to Pinfu but it’s better to get this Han from Dora and win. 2. RIICHI JUDGEMENT Another Dora wait. Different context. Since I didn’t want a shanpon wait, maybe I … More Tenhou Stuff XIX
Howdy! Here’s a bunch of screenshots to discuss, this time they’re not from my games: 1. 5 BLOCK METHOD How to divide this hand into blocks? 468m 2346p 1334567s (2 blocks) Souzu are very flexible and may produce two/three groups and a pair. One group + a pair is already there. 6p seems like a … More Tenhou Stuff XVIII
Hello! Well, the title says it all, I’m speechless/typeless, one of the best days ever *_* Stats so far (note: I’ve played Tonpuu only): Tenhou has been super kind to me on 2-3d. I literally stormed through my last +30 games with no 4th places and only a couple of 3rds. That really shows in … More Wowser, I’m in Tokujou!
Hello! This is the first ever blog post not written by me. I contacted Benjamin Boas a while ago and asked him for some info on GPC. Benjamin indeed provided some info which to me was enough to make a separate article! Here it goes….

Yo, again! Now it’s time for Mai to enter the stage! 1. How did you start playing Riichi? In Hong Kong, Mahjong is a popular activity that commonly takes place during family visits and friend gatherings. Thus it is not unusual for people like me to be exposed to Mahjong at a relatively young age. … More Krabman interviews…. Episode 28
