A friend of mine recently sent me a link to a flash implementation of four-player mahjong. It doesn’t have moe characters, or any characters at all for that matter, and it’s decidedly bereft of flashy visuals, catchy tunes, and, well, personality.
On the other hand, it plays a pretty good hand of mahjong and it’s very English-friendly. It gives you arabic numerals and roman characters on kanji-only mahjong tiles and it has an English list of rules, spelling out scoring and winning conditions and giving picture examples.
And, small side bonus, it’s free.
Link is here. Enjoy.
OK, this is driving me nuts! When I can call “Ron” and grab an opponent’s discard, I get a helpful little orange hand over the tile I want, but I can’t figure out how to execute the “Ron” action. I’ve tried clicking the object tile. I’ve tried clicking the orange hand thing. I’ve tried click and drag. Nothing works and I lose my “Ron”. Please help the clueless and tell me what the execution step is, please.
First, click where it says “Ron”, and then click the tile in their discards that you need to win. Not exactly intuitive!
