Are mahjong games the Japanese equivalent of boomers playing windows solitaire?
>>
>>9276897
Define "boomer" clearly.
>>
>>9276897
Mahjong games for salarymen would be like your average factory manager playing Deer Hunter or Tiger Woods Golf on his free time
>>
>>9276910
No, that would ruin the thread when people start arguing over what boomer means.
>>
>>9276897
unironically yes. a lot of the old farts at my workplace will boot up mahjong on their office computers during lunch. now that we work from home I reckon they just play mahjong all day

Yes, except it's boomer coomers. I wish there was a good tutorial online on how to play Mahjong.
>>
>>9277087
There's a really popular mahjong game called Mahjong Soul that has a tutorial. I still haven't tried it myself, but apparently that's how loads of people play mahjong these days.
>>
>>9277087
Protip: be Chinese.
>>
>>9277087
It's just gin rummy in moon runes
>>
>>9277093
Cool, I'll check it out.

Mahjong is a huge part of the history of arcade games that doesn't get enough respect. One of these days I'll buy a mahjong controller.
>>
>>9277087
Play one of the Yakuza games, it's pretty easy to get the hang of it

>>

Hey, that’s me!
>>
>>9277135
Correct. The game Rummikub is an even closer analog, the scoring is just simplified because mahjongg basically requires an abacus to calculate points.

Still one of the best games of all time. I still put some music on and play it.
>>
>>9279063
I was doing better at Mahjong in Yakuza 0 when I didn’t try to employ anything but extremely basic strategy. You can imagine my frustration when I started doing worse the more time I spent playing it. May have just been beginner’s luck that carried me at first, though.

Mahjong is some crazy shit.

Boomers are over 60.

If there are tits involved I will play any game regardless of how mundane it is.

Why would you know? I get know that both you and OP are upset (and for some reason, envious) zoomers, now, but since you hate this place and this board and yet decide to retardedly come and post here anyway, it stands to reason to ask to make who's posting: people who are asking about the tastes of baby boomers proper or underage coomer faggots randomly rageposting.

If I played mahjong I'd love to have one of those at home, although I would prefer a mecha Chinese man controller instead

you'd also need the software
probably the machine and its moon rune documentation
bourgeois as fuck, probably cheaper to buy a chinese man, and a mecha

You can learn to play irl mahjong in a week. It's just a variation on rummy with tiles instead of cards.

yeah i have a windows NT-ish mahjongg game, played the shit out of it

ok so you know what kind of moon rune electronic abacus you need to play it, maybe you have one already, how is that less bougie

is it real jong or just that shanghai solitaire matching shit

once you play a lot of jong you understand why this is a nice luxury, kind of like the first time I ever used a legit japanese keyboard (dedicated henkan and character set change keys! nice)

I was bowled over when I first saw one of these. I knew video mahjong was huge over there but never considered that they would have specialty controls for those games.
I just started Mahjong Soul today (I’m the guy that recommended it earlier) and although I can tell it’s gonna take me a while to get everything down, it actually doesn’t seem quite as daunting to learn riichi mahjong as I thought it would be. I’m enough of a weeb to already know how to play koi koi and I played a lot of Rummikub as a kid, so I must just be wired for these kinds of games.
>>
>>9280661
The software is the easy bit. Finding the Chinese mecha man will be the challenge
>>
Are the games just for fun or is it like Pachinko where you are actually gambling?

Legality of these machines would hard to determine in a lot of states in the USA. Is mahjong considered a game of skill or chance?
>>
>>9281054
We already have video poker and blackjack machines all over the country here.
>>
>>9281057
Not all over the country. The laws are different from state to state and they get confiscated by law enforcement all the time when stores begin illegally making payouts instead of people just playing for fun.

I guess I'm used to living near a bunch of tribal governments, to be fair. It also just so happens that most of the places I've been in the US either have casinos or "gaming centers".
But to answer your question, it's a game of both skill and chance like poker or gin rummy.

Yeah. But what is the most Japanese boomer game ever? My vote goes for "Mahjong Erotica Golf".
>>
>>9283839
Breathtaking. I don't know how anything could possibly compete with that unless High Leg Pachislot Derby is a real game and not something I just made up
>>
>>9281054
It's fun for the naked anime girls.
Otherwise no because the cpu cheats like crazy
>>
Mahjong games, horse racing games, pachinko games. The holy trifecta of shit that Japanese seniors waste their retirement money on.
>>
>>9281054
It's like any card game. The tiles you get are random and you gotta make winning sets out of your hand.
>>
>>9284591
I meant whether or not the machines were used for gambling in Japan.

>>9280583
Anywhere near as bad as tank controllers or flight yokes, or steering wheels?

Add in 16 bit digitized nipples or anime depictions. That got a lot of quarters in back in the 90s.

For added realism

>Make 7 or more sake/vodka/whiskey and sodas, match with 3x beers
>pour on the board
>Acquire 20 or more packs of cigarettes.
>Smoke each one then leave the butt on the board.
>Get stickers for Nintendo Excitebike, Ice Climber or Speed Rumbler. Burn with cigarettes. Soak with spilled booze. Place Mahjong instructions over them then apply plastic protective cover.

I'm glad they advertise it's for amusement only, wouldn't want to accidentally use it for serious business mahjong.
>>
>>9287794
It's a legal thing so it doesn't get declared a gambling device. Same with bongs at sketchy convenience stores having "FOR TOBACCO USE ONLY" stickers.

I love what a bizarre, sleazy company Nichibutsu was. Even arcade action from the early 80s, like Frisky Tom, had a lewd bathing girl. All the Mahjong speaks for itself. The owl logo is a real seal of quality.

Just look at this pic of their executives - some of them look like mugshots of crime bosses and assorted yakuza types in a 70s Sonny Chiba flick.

I can smell the cigarette smoke and Suntory drenched meetings in Nichibutsu HQ from the picture. They probably had a sex dungeon up inside the owl sign on the roof, with naked sushi and shit for "research" purposes.

Wrong.

The slang word "Boomer" is a mind set. It can apply to anyone. It applies to anyone of any age. It means someone is stubbornly closed-minded, unwilling to adapt, and dismissive of new ideas.

Boomers are members of the Baby Boomer generation and that's it. No "internet boomer" or "30 year old boomer".

Word definitions change, once a word becomes used a new certain way by enough people, this new definition also becomes correct alongside the old one. That's how languages evolve.

Reminder that you're posting in a "retro" board by the SECOND definition of the word, the first definition being "something new made in the style of old", ie a "boomer shooter" made in Unreal Engine 5, something not even allowed to be discussed in here.
