>>517541526It isn't that bad, read can get started immediately with like, 5 hands in mind and the basic idea that you want to group tiles into sequences of 3, triplets, pairs and quadruples. You need 4 groups of triplets, sequences or quadruples and one pair for most hands. You shouldn't call people's tiles unless you know what you're doing it for. The only safe call you can make everytime as a beginner is ron when somebody plays the last tile you need to win your hand.

>>517551120I tried HK a couple times and I don't get it, typically it's played with a 3 point minimum but there are barely any hands so it feels like you're pretty much forced to go for clean/pure or all triplets every hand unless you get dealt a good seed for something bigger. Am I missing something or is that just kind of how the game works?Anyways Riichi is my true love but I also enjoy the MCR and ZJ Chinese variants despite not having anywhere to play them online.

Rule 1: You must press every shiny button when it appears, ESPECIALLY if that button is KanRule 2: It doesn't matter if your hand is only 1000 points and you are 30000 points behind, it is worth it because of the mental anguish your opponents will suffer when their tryhard hard is crushed by your chad all simples

>>517561148Doing that shit in IRL setting will get you blacklisted

>>517541526You make hands of 14 tiles that are made up of 4 groups of 3 and a group of 2.Because this is Japanese Mahjong, the hand must also fulfill a "yaku", or hand. This would be the equivelent of something like a full house or a flush in poker. You can fulfill multiple hands at the same time, gaining more points at the end of the round.There are also additional rules/tips and tricks. I'll list the major ones.You may call "pon" if any other player discards a tile that you can use to make a triplet of all the same tiles. All 3s, all dragons, etc. This move does restrict you from higher scoring hands, but can help you win faster.You may call "chi" if the player to your left discards a tile that creates a sequence of numbers going up. 123, 456, etc. The same downsides of pon apply, and using chi to make hands is more difficult.You may call "Kan" if someone discards a tile to make 4 of the same number or dragon OR you get a fourth tile of the same number drawn. This group of four will still be counted as a group of 3, but awards bonus points. Depending on if you called Kan from a discarded tile or from one you drew will change the different Yaku you can make.If the last tile you need to win the round is one you've already discarded, IT WILL NOT COUNT. Keep this is mind as well when building hands.The easiest hand to win is by calling pon/kan constantly and getting tripplets and pairs. Beginners should be working towards this easiest hand to make.You can also win the hand by calling Ron when an opponent discards the last tile you need to make a winning hand.Sorry for the blogpost and reddit spacing, but this will be a good "Holla Forums beginners guide" to mahjong. The mahjong soul crowd will probably lynch me though. Such is life.

>>517561148They do, it's just hard to hear under the casters.

>>517564116The idea is that they're all idiots and don't actually know how to play mahjong. Hell, after the guy does his first pon, the Americans get so flustered in their arguing that the jap just takes his turn.

>shit happens where devs give asian players free summon scrolls>western players only get gifts and bronze coinsWhy the bias?

>>517565478That's how mahjong is. The best strat is to aim not to lose points. It's not really about building a hand at all, the game is avoiding dealing into someone else's hand.

>>517567487That doesn't work as well when you play too defensive and end up losing because you keep getting hit by tsumos

>>517566765There are times when riichi is appropriate and times when it is not. Same with calling kans, pons, and chi. Personally my favorite yaku are mangan or better open hands, usually with all of one suit. I'll usually get one big win and then play super defensively the rest of the rounds.

is the reason I can't call ron on the 6-man cause of the 3-man in my pile?

>>517567610Tsumos happen and there's nothing you can do about them except for play like a nyagger and rush trash hands for 500 points. Playing defensively is still the best strategy because it's better to pay 500 points along with everyone else on a Tsumo than it is to pay 1500 yourself because you dealt into someone else's hand.

>>517567791No, it's because you have no yaku. If your hand was closed you would have had a yaku for that, but you opened your hand when you called the 9-man.At that point I don't even know what to tell you except your hand is shit. There's no easy way to save it. I'd say your best bet is to dump your pins and bamboo and go for an all word tile hand, but I don't even know if there's enough turns left in the game for you to manage that.

>>517568150He has yaku though user, ittsu can be open.It's literallt just furiten due to the 3m discard.

>>517568150>>517568056I thought I just wouldn't be able to call for 3-man for winning, but still could call 6-man for straight

>>517567791Yes, in that case you could have won with with 3-man or 6-man, but since you already discarded a 3-man before, both are furiten.You didn't have any yaku anyway.

>>517568150Fuck off retard, don't talk like you know shit. He has yaku, he's in furiten.

>>517568382Huh, I must be rusty on the rules for furiten then. I haven't played since the first few months when Mahjongsoul came out.

You can only been good at mahjong if you have the right approach. Never play defensively, no matter what anyone says. Your calls and discards should be baffling, almost nihilistic at times. It's the only way the demons of mahjong will grant you "flow", which is the ability to draw whatever you need whenever you need it and always pass risky tiles. Flow is actually more important than fundamentals, and anyone who says otherwise is a coward who deserves bad draws.

>>517571956It does, the anime just caught up to the manga and had nothing to go off of. It took the manga 20 years to finish Washizu mahjong.


>>517571956Manga has a great ending nigger.

>>517572540I would have prefered if Washizu actually died, the way he ended chasing Akagi forever felt pathetic and humillating. But i guess that's better for him than actually winning and killing Akagi, because then his life would be truly meaningless.
