How about a game of mahjong?
You won't pick it up without playing it. It just isn't intuitive.
Start with the Flash game (all the Yaku are at the bottom, just scroll down) and once you start making hands you can move on.
Pretty sure International Mahjong Rules follow pretty heavily Riichi Mahjong rules.
Also the fact that flower tiles exist in traditional Chinese mahjong.
inb4 red fives and dora
Weird match you guys are having there.
That has to be my best start ever.
>want to play
>cant read the character tiles
Large, medium, small and then there's Kids Meals!
white dragon - tofu
green dragon - Christmas tree
red dragon - Jesus on the cross
East - East
West - harp or bong depending on what type of tiles you're playing with
South - banjo
North - N
The one you posted.
In Saki and Akagi, there's crazy mahjong powers (Saki), nine hands out of ten are above mangan in value (Akagi), and there's constant talk about "flow".
nut in Tetsunaki no Kirinji there's none of that. The strategies they talk about would work in the real world, Kirinji's style is what is actually used in betting parlors, and is the one that makes more sense in a realistic game of mahjong.
It's so refreshing to read because when he wins I feel like he earned it with his own human skill, not because of some occult power or because of some deux ex machina handwaved as 'flow'.
Done with mahjong?
>How about a game of mahjong?
Not even once
anyone that could recommend some kind of online mahjong to watch and play at?
I'm getting tired of dota 2 and their """"balancing"""" the entire game. It's completely screwed up and I hate seeing/playing OP heroes all the time just to boost MMR.
you know its true.

Also, you'd know where to play and watch mahjong if you read the thread even for a couple posts, instead of coming in here from /v/, ctrl+F'ing for 'mahjong', and then posting without even reading anything in the thread you're asking for help from.
You could've just asked and received help, but you had to bring that normie shit in here.
>I'm up, so I'll kan on the dora to scare them.
I actually wanted to get the full Washizu 12 dora threat, but I instead gave you a haneman minimum hand, so I had to back off.
I think it would be the highest hand in my life.
I really wanted all green but the likelihood of that happening was even slimmer, especially with the amount of my hand revealed and my discards of the 5 and 9 sou.
Gotta go fast.
