Start up some Enka, grab a beer and lets get some Mahjong going.
I already played a shitty game. Enough for tonight.
sorry to hear that anon. Maybe next time
well that was an awful first game. Hopefully the tiles are more in...anyone's favor next game
Come on, it's only midnight.
One more player needed.
>It's another "i'm in 4th place where I belong" episode
Nice game though.
I'm just glad all the rons directed at me were negligible. Had to work my way back up after the numerous tsumos and riichis but that final hand did the trick.
You never know, you could have drawn into a yakuman and turned it around in South 4. Or at least gotten second place.
Plus, quitting ruins the fun for everyone else too.
Have there been any tournaments since the last one? Haven't visited the /jp/ mahjong threads in quite some time.

Sad thing was I could have won East 4 but I was stupid and didn't Tsumo. Still kicking myself for that one.
Why? To win of course.
Well, that was disheartening.
Second place though, even if it was a negative overall. Can't believe the uradora weren't enough to push me into third on that final hand.

Where do you guys even start learning?
If it's any consolation, now that I see your 6 dora hon itsu, I feel slightly relieved. I had no intention of backing down, even with that great of a lead. One more kan could have turned it into a yakuman though.
1.Learn how to into tanyao and yakuhai.
2.Play until you stop sucking.

Online, of course.
And if you really want some sources:

When you feel you're ready, then join us in OP's link. Or hell, screw playing the AI and just jump right in.
See >>138902741. You can play at your own pace against the AI and how to make a hand (yaku) is listed. In terms of becoming proficient at mahjong, you just have to keep playing.
For rules, the arcturus.su wiki page will help a lot, in addition to explaining more about how hands work.
Here's some other stuff.
I didn't want to back down for a lot of hands in that last game. Even with poor waits and early riichis, I was banking on intimidation and inattentiveness for a few of them. Nonetheless, it was fun. I haven't been seeing any mahjong or mahjong manga/anime threads on /a/ recently, though I could always drop in on /jp/ and get buried real quick.
So you were Hitler in a past life, correct?
>don't know rules
How in the fuck do you expect new people to learn the game? Playing is the best way to learn.
