I play Japanese mahjong quite a lot, both online on Tenhou and with friends. I managed a pretty awesome dealer 9-han (baiman) hand once, but I wouldn't say I'm particulary good. 8kyu rank on Tenhou. :p

Mahjong anime are so much more awesome if you actually play the game.

I managed to get a non-dealer (iirc, it was more than a year ago) yakuman once (with kokushi muso hand). I usually go for some high scoring hands, so I either win big or lose big. :)

I'm kinda reluctant to play on Tenhou though...even with multiple guides available in English, I'm still afraid to screw up. XD

Tried Hong kong version of Mahjong and I liked it, I might try the japanese version if I have the chance to.

I grew up playing this game with my family nearly weekly, so I play fairly frequently. Only issue is that the rules are slightly different than the style I play (Hong Kong Style), so it takes just a little while for me to adjust, but most of the aspects are about the same. (If there's a duplicate of this message, it's because the dormitory internet is a bleeding pile of dung).

You're on the Saki discussion board, did you think we were talking about the matching sets pyramid game? :)

I've been wanting to learn for a while but never did. Mostly because my parents don't know how... Although my dad knows how to play go. ):

My Grandma is a tileshark hardcore hustler (among old ladies :P) and she is my mahjong sensei. I'm pretty good if I must say so myself. Japanese mahjong is essentially the same as Chinese, but the scoring is different. I'll pick it up before the show is over tho.

(Riichi is a pretty fun rule to play with, though I must admit ;))

Yes I do play Mahjong. Taiwanese and Guangdong Mahjong, but not Japanese Mahjong. I can understand mostly on what they're doing in Saki but not the scoring scheme. I have to read the Japanese scorings. It's pretty much the same as Guangdong Mahjong though

same here:P

My parents taught me Chinese/Taiwanese Mahjong, but I forget it and I've never played it at all. But the Japanese version seems so cool >.<

Yes, I play mahjong. But it's not the Japanese kind though, I play the cantonese version.
For all due respect sir, that's pretty screwed up right there.

i rarely have the chance to play, but i've played both 13 and 17 tiles. hardest part for me is scoring, which i just leave to others, easiest being tile counting and elimination in the end game

granted, i haven't started watching the anime yet, but i feel like for a lot of these types of anime (hikaru no go, shion no ou, etc.), not knowing the game doesn't undermine the character development and the sense of urgency at all. i never played shogi in my life but still enjoyed shion no ou a great deal.
