My Mahjong Journey

November 6, 2008

I remember in my days as a child I used to play a game called Mahjong. For those of you who don’t know, Mahjong is a game that was invented in China involving tiles and angry elderly Asian women. Well at least that’s how I remember Mahjong being like. When I played Mahjong it was with my relatives and they were always old, angry, and impatient. That’s why I was turned off for a long time and I thought that I would never play again, until now. I’ve found a new reason to play Mahjong and it’s called “Moeru Mahjong Moejong.” Instead of playing with old angry Asian ladies, however, I play against super cute anime girls. I think that’s a big step up. There’s only a couple of things that take away from this experience.

1) I completely forgot how to play Mahjong.

2) The Japanese rules seem completely different from the rules that I learned.

3) The game is entirely in Japanese.

But there is a bright side. It’s super, super moe!

My journey of Mahjong has barely begun. At some point I wish to learn how to properly play this game again using the Japanese rules. Wish me luck! I’ll pop in from time to time and report on my findings. Why? Because everyone loves moe and I like Mahjong.

Warm Regards,

DJ
