***The NEW Tournament ID is[masked]*** If you have given us your player ID in the past, we have transferred it to this new tournament and you don't need to re-send it to us. Join us for Japanese-style Mahjong online using https://mahjongsoul.yo-star.com/ We are using the site Mahjong Soul to play Riichi. It's actually a pretty fun site, and you can use it to learn how to play.
