Try to get to watch a game happen some time and let me know how they go about scoring themselves without the aid of computers. I’m rather curious how long it takes experienced players to evaluate a hand manually.
I’ll only be able to go in two weeks time (since this weekend I’m packing and the next I’ll be in Rio) but I’m looking forward.
From what I gathered, the head of the society who maintains their Facebook group and attributes points during the championships is actually a Japanese descendant in his mid thirties who seems REALLY obsessed about Mahjong.
If I had Facebook Id totally PM him and ask if they host any noob games at all and try to join after I’ve learned the basics… Seems like I’ll have to show up in person haha
In the meantime, I’m up for playing some more with you!
Have played a little in the past, don’t know all of the rules. Plus Japanese and Chinese rules are going to be different.
It would be interesting to play together for sure, I would be up for it. It’s a very cerebral game. I am always looking for a good simulation on the PC, and if we can play with friends, that would be even better.
The game’s like Rummy, so it’s pretty easy to learn. The trick is tally up scores and such, but if we play on PC, that should be done for us, which is nice.
Chrono.gg Game Nights?
Mostly free on the weekends, but I don’t have any board games in my Steam library.
Do… you wanna learn how to play riichi Mahjong?
pretty sure i have key for 100% orange juice , then you can try the waters in the gang’s board game pool, and see if it’s something for you and if should consider/keep an eye out for some of the other game entries
And i have a key to Mysterium. In fact, I think I have 2…would have to check.
My schedule is pretty open and the games I currently am able to play are mysterium and 100% orange juice. As I previously stated in earlier responses.
The sad thing is, Mysterium and 100% Orange Juice aren’t on Mac :((
Thanks for the offers though!
Can I join?
I don’t know, can you?
Flesh your application out a bit, tell us what games you have and want to play. Maybe even tell us something about yourself, board gaming is very much a social experience so it’s as much about the people you play with as the games you play.
We have at this point managed to establish a fairly stable “core” of players, people we enjoy playing games with and since player slots are limited those tend to get invited first. I’m of course aware this makes it hard for new people to join in but who knows, maybe we’ll like you.
You HAVE to like @Silk. They are from Brazil!!!
I only have one now. For sure…
my dude I forgot you were from Brasil…
BRASIL TEAM UNITE
WHERE’S OUR CACHAÇA AT
Oh, stop it…
You’re so adorable
But, I understand what @Fraggles says. Lately, I am not being much active in the discussions here :-/.
For the best community in the world wide web, I promise be more active and participate effectively of the discussions.
I saw @coralinecastell playing Gremlin with the other guys, and wow, seems to be cool that game.
Also, here is the cachaça!
Which remidns me of one of my favorite Brazilian video ever, B U T E C O:
This, my international friends, is where we drink cachaça
“Butecos” are some of the most fun places in the world , you just sit and wait for 10 minutes and I guarantee you will see something bizarre / funny happen
I dont know if it’s any consolation, but it’s been some time since I’ve been here and I’m practically a ghost.
My proudest Mahjong win yet!
Thanks for the fun couple of rounds – of which he won the second – and tile-throwing, @Fraggles!
We’re hoping we can get a full house on voip tomorrow, if anyone is up. I might even skip – due to work and packing – but Fraggles will host the game and I’m always happy to hear some folk killed themselves on the pit trying to get a seat at the table.
