If you're interested in playing Riichi Mahjong or learning how to play Riichi Mahjong this meetup is perfect. We welcome players of all levels and we are willing to teach newcomers. Riichi mahjong is the official name for Japanese style Mahjong and is the same style seen in popular anime like Akagi and Saki. The Wikipedia page for Japanese Mahjong (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_Mahjong) gives a lot of good information about the specifics of this style as it compares to other popular Mahjong rulesets.
Here are some other usefully links for learning about riichi mahjon:
• Cheat sheet (for printing double sided on a single sheet) (http://mahjong-europe.org/portal/images/docs/riichi_sheet_EN.pdf)
• List of yaku (1) (http://arcturus.su/wiki/List_of_yaku)
• List of yaku (2) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_Mahjong_yaku)
• Online flash game vs AI for practice (http://www.gamedesign.jp/flash/mahjong/mahjong_e.html)
We would be open to other styles but only if there is enough interest to support it. If you have a mahjong set that you would lend to the group it would enable us to play more tables. Please reach out if you have any questions or would like to host a meeting.
