As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
is a pretty neat site that lets you play various versions of Mahjong online.
You can create your own game or you can join in on the fun, and they offer a wide variety of rule variations depending on what you're familiar with. (For the record, HK rules are the one true set of rules.)
Free accounts have a daily "chip" limit of 1000, where you can play more games if you win more often, but otherwise when you run out of chips for the day, you can't play anymore until you get topped up the next day.
Mahjong Time is also kinda neat because the game tells you what the tiles are as they are being discarded, so you don't have to worry so much if you don't read Chinese.
If you're totally new to Mahjong and kinda wanna learn how to play, you can read this:
Games go pretty quickly on that site, but if you set up your own game, you can set higher turn times so you have more time to think about what's happening. I won't have much time to play until next week, but I'm happy to help with any questions you may have (so long as it's about Hong Kong Mahjong since that's the type I've been playing all my life).
Like I said I have no idea how interested you guys are in this, but if you are, let me know what your username is on that site!
