yeah, but you should really take your time one reading the blog, or whatever. I post a site where you could play NPC and learn a little and it's all free.

Mahjong has a large number of variants around the world. There's classic Chinese mahjong, there's American mahjong, and there's the style of mahjong played in Saki called "Riichi Mahjong" which is the most common style played in Japan.

For terminology I will be following the official rules of riichi mahjong by the European mahjong association:
http://mahjong-europe.org/filer/riichirules.pdf

The setup:

The flow of the game:

The start of a hand:

The object of the game:

Scoring:


And that's it! There are a few other rules, like furiten or chombo, but you can read about them in the rules sheet I linked to above.

Hopefully this can help you understand a bit better what's going on in Saki, and where all those random numbers come from.




what do they mean no multiplier in http://www.gamedesign.jp/flash/mahjong/mahjong_e.html

Read this paragraph above:


It means that your hand does not have at least 1 "yaku".

In Japanese mahjong, just having 4 sets and a pair isn't enough to declare mahjong. You have to have at least 1 yaku in your hand.

ドンだけー!
ルールが覚えれないほどありすぎる!
まー僕にわ関係ない、だって、DSバージオンでじりきで覚えたけど、これもかなりわかりやすく説明してるね~。

Yay, now I know a little more about how to play it on my DS

Thank you so much for the help as I enjoy the anime already for its characters and music but knowing some of the game too helps. Over the top play is fun too of course in the anime.

Thanks for the site. It takes a long time to learn Actual Mahjong (or relearn it in my case)

The prob is in that in North America, you say Mahjong and most people think of the matching tile puzzle game.
Hopefully Saki will help dispel this thinking in NA.
