I have a question for the resident (Japanese) Mahjogn experts, what's wrong with this play?
 
Whenever I click Ron I'm told there's no multiplier so I can't continue without discarding one of the tiles I need. Apparently there's something about the rules that I don't understand because that looks fine to me. *shrug*
 
 
 
 
 
Of course this is just a flash game against three A.I. Does anyone play against real people?

Usually, most games require a minimum of 3 FAN in order to win. Japanese Mahjong should require at least 1 FAN to win. Sometimes if you try to RON when you have NO FAN in japanese Mahjong, you will end up loosing money.  In this game, they simply prevent you from winning totally.

@FLStyle:  Ha! I remember when you wrote this. Our site watching of Saki feels like it was decades ago.

What is a fan again? We watched the entire series of Saki, a mahjong anime, and yet they barely even attempted to explain how the game works. Somehow it was still very entertaining.

Man, I have absolutely no clue how to play Mahjong, all I know is that it's one of my greatest delights in life is to stalk though the alleys of San Francisco Chinatown on weekend nights listening to the clacking tiles at "secret" second and third story mahjong parlors. It's gives me a wonderful affirmation that I'm alive and living in one of the most interesting cities on Earth.
