TOP 3 MAHJONG TILES [NSFW]

You know that feeling when your local mahjong club struggles to get tiles but fails miserably, and yet somewhere in Japan there are 136 hot tiles inside a table while people play a game, somewhere. These are some of the greatest tiles of Japanese Mahjong.

#3 Haku

A pure tile; untouched by dirty paintbrushes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#2 1p

It seems like whenever an anime/manga needs an epic win or they need something mahjong related they’ll use a 1p.

 

 

 

#1 Haku Pocchi

While only ever seen in jansous, Haku Pocchi is truly the greatest tile ever. It’s a haku with a bit of paint but If you draw this tile after a riichi it counts as any tile you want!

  1. Haku pocchi also comes without the paint in the middle, instead just a small diamond.
    Also, it only counts as any tile if you draw it in the first turn of your riichi (ippatsu), if you don’t then it’s just a haku.

    1. My original comment was too lewd so I had to change it quickly!

      I played a PSP game a few years ago which used haku pocchi and green dora tiles. I only played a couple of games but I seem to recall using it multiple times without ippatsu. I guess either the game used it wrong or I have bad a memory.

      1. No, Deniz is right. Most places -do- require for it to be ippatsu.

        Probably not on videogames because it won’t make a difference, but in Jansou (parlors) that’s very important.

  2. How is this NSFW? D:

    Does anyone know how much a Japanese mahjong set costs? Would it be cheaper to buy it there or to order it online? My friend is going to Japan in a month or so and I plan to have him buy it there if it’s cheaper.

    1. The tiles are naked.

      It’ll most likely be cheaper to get your friend to buy the set because if you order online you’ll have to pay for shipping which will cost almost the same as the set itself.

      1. I see. I didn’t think of the shipping costs, but now that you mentioned it, it’s going to be very expensive if you include that… And the tiles themselves aren’t cheap either. (If ordered online.) D:

          1. I see, that’s really expensive. But does any Chinatown store sell Japanese mahjong sets? Currently, we have Chinese mahjong sets, so playing isn’t a problem. However, we want the Japanese set. =P

          2. Then prepare to bleed money Hongyi, most J-tiles are made in China but not commonly sold in chinatowns, at least outside Asia.

          3. I live in South East Asia, Singapore. I don’t know of any stores selling Japanese sets though… It’s unlikely to find any here since Japanese mahjong doesn’t seem to be known here.

    2. Definitely have your friend pick one up. A buddy got my preferred set (Take brand, good quality) in Japan for 3500y at a Don Quixote. The set weighs 2kg, though, and that’s serious international shipping costs: I dunno where you’re at, but it’s another 4000y to get that to the US.

  3. Hongyi. If you’re from Singapore, you’re welcome to play with us. though we have enough players, you can play with us. Is there anyway I can contact you?

    1. Marked white dragon tiles are not dora, they’re something else entirely. Tenyou “use while tenpai” is a tile that when you’ve called riichi, if you self-pick it, it’s the joker tile = it can fill any of your waits, including if the tiles are burnt elsewhere. Nasty way of scoring a baiman++ hand. May have other bonuses attached to it.

      No skill required.
