Match 3 to 4 tiles
When the game starts, focus on collecting matching tiles.
Yaku is a combination of hand patterns to score a hand. Below is a list of yaku.
|Role (Yi Pai)||Arrange white, white, medium|
|Wind tiles (Feng pai)||East, south, west, and north|
|Tanyao||Suit tiles consisting of those numbered 2 to 8. One of the basic combinations suitable for beginners.|
|Towa (Toitoi)||Set 4 of the same tile and then 2 of the same tile|
|All at once (Ikkitsukan)||1 to 9 pieces of 1 piece in one kind|
|Really (Hon’itsu)||Single type tile and character tile|
|Chin’itsu||Complete the shapes with the same type of tiles|
Tanyao is one of the easiest combinations to achieve in Mahjong.
Discard the same tile
If the opponent is about to win, you can opt to copy your opponent’s move and discard the same tile.
Discard as many tiles as possible
When you don’t have the same tile that your opponent discards, you can also opt to discard as many tiles as you can.
Keep Dora and 5 tiles
Since Dora and 5 are useful to form yaku, avoid discarding these tiles to prevent your opponent from claiming them. The Dora or bonus tile is a practical way to earn more points.
Types of claims
|Tsumo||Win off a tile that you drew. All opponents have to pay a share.|
|Ron||Win off an opponent’s discarded tile. You will earn the full sum from the one who discarded the tile.|
Requires the following:
|Form a triplet of 3 of the same tiles from the claims that your opponents have discarded|
(Sequence or Chow)
|Form a sequence of 3 of the same type in numerical order from the claims that your opponents have discarded|
(Quad or Kan)
|Form a quad with identical tiles from the claims that your opponents have discarded.|
Pong and Chi
Unless you have fully understood the rules of Mahjong, avoid going for Pong and Chi.
Join the Shochu Cup
If you join all tables in Mahjong Citron, head to the counter to join the Shochu Cup and then pay the entry fee of 50,000 yen. If you win the Shochu Cup, you’ll earn at least 200,000 worth of prizes.
