I've read the rules you've linked to there, and don't see a single explicit mention that the forum is only for Electronic games. I think you're coming up with a non-existent interpretation. I had a thread about Tabletop RPG's before, and the moderators seemed completely fine with it.

Also, I think having a Mahjong thread in the Games forum would be much preferable outcome than the Saki thread becoming a Mahjong thread.

Also, gg and wth Gonzo. They flew through 4 chapters, but lost some time because they had to retcon their own change to the series. Chibi koromo looks nowhere as amusing as she does in the manga either.
Spoil me. Explain the bold part please?

I'm assuming by the 4 chapters comment that the second round of the match finished in this episode.

That was a fun episode. Nice job by Ryoko Shintani as Kaori, stumbling her way to victory. And Kyoutaro continues to prove that he has a fine future as an errand boy.

He's referring to the change of Mako's family's store from a mahjong parlor to a "maid cafe with a mahjong table".

Gonzo decided they needed Nodoka to say "Yes, master" a few times, so they changed mako's family's store from a mahjong parlor where the staff dressed as maids to a full-blown maid cafe.

Hisa therefore has to add an extra line when she flashes back saying "Oh, but before mako's place was a maid cafe is was actually a mahjong parlor" wasting an entire line on that retcon.

How about having a Saki sub-forum and having its mahjong thread with it? There's still quite a number of episodes to go and I think there's a healthy response to the series thus far.

It's all up to the staff though.

There are other mahjong anime aside from Saki, so having a topic in the subforum wouldn't be appropriate.

I went ahead and made a topic in Games, and I've added some things and will add more, but I'm a bit pressed for time right now. Feel free to ask questions as those are less labour intensive than writing up a full blown beginner's guide to Japanese mahjong.

Damn...must be pretty DAMN good for Mihoko to be THAT afraid of her. That last line was SERIOUS BUSINESS: "Please, don't attack her head on!". Man...even I'm getting into Mahjong now. DAMN YOU SAKI, one more thing to keep me from my studies.

I don't see much problem really. When people watching Hikaru no Go they gona start discussing about Go. Since this show is centered around mahjong, everyone who are watching the show at one point or another will discuss about the mahjong part. It's basically the range of discussion this series has provide and a form of apreciation to the show also. I'm really sorry if it's too loud. ~_~

Of course, some discussion is fine and even on-topic. But keep in mind, for general questions like how-to-play, or specifics of the rules, and so on, you can't expect people to read through 50+ pages of the Saki thread to find that one time way back when someone mentioned some specific explanation. People will have different questions at different times, and the same questions will repeat themselves. (Some on-going discussion could even occur after the series is over.) So it's actually more convenient for general purpose questions to be organized in their own thread so they're easier to find. Of course, questions specific to things that happen in the anime itself belong here. I hope that clarifies the distinction.

Thanks that clears up alot, RelentlessFlame. I myself never played the game before watching this show. So alots what going on in the anime were quite confusing for me. I'm really grateful there are some really nice people here help explain the terms and game rules. Thus making the show alot more enjoyable. ^_^

Mahjong is one game that you really have to be hands-on to know how to play the game.

The more it is explained, the more confusing it will get.

Its a shame that they didnt show Tomoki playing t_t But we got super-cute KoromoxPenguin, some funny scenes between her and Fujita Pro, some yuri between SakixNodoka and ED2 (!) so Im fine <3 Though removing the skirts was wtf.

But Kaori sure is cute <3 Blasting off everyone with a yakuman first round lol. I wished for a meganekko round last episode and I really got it \o/

edit: We also get more-or-less the reason for Hajimes chains (Hajime <3) so this episode was pretty cool.

Also Tsuruga should be aiming for Kazekoshi, judging from the last scene this is probably the worst thing she could do. You know youre going down when youre facing twintails as your opponent (lol) Episode 11 will be epic, I can feel it.

Spoiler for saki eps. 10::


Is it just me, or is Koromo inhumanly white? Is she just pale-skinned, or is she really the white rabbit of Inaba?

Spoiler for uh, oh.:

Yes, I couldn't agree more. ^_^ Just reading this thread, I got to admit I didn't get it at all. Until I actually tried the game, then it makes perfect sense. Having played the game also make me view this series in different light. Like in the beginning she was doing 'plus minus zero' I got the hint that was something cool she did. But after I played the game, I realized that is something really incredible to be able to stay plus minus zero. Even a veteran will have problem to pull that off. What a strange girl she is. >_<
