Are mahjong games the Japanese equivalent of boomers playing windows solitaire?
>>9276897Define "boomer" clearly.
>>9276897Mahjong games for salarymen would be like your average factory manager playing Deer Hunter or Tiger Woods Golf on his free time
>>9276910No, that would ruin the thread when people start arguing over what boomer means.
>>9276897unironically 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
>>9276897Yes, except it's boomer coomers. I wish there was a good tutorial online on how to play Mahjong.
>>9277087There'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.
>>9277087Protip: be Chinese.
>>9277087It's just gin rummy in moon runes
>>9277093Cool, 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.
>>9277087Play one of the Yakuza games, it's pretty easy to get the hang of it
>>9276910>>9276921Imma jump on this grenade, yoloboomer: over 30, unhip/cringe, butthurt nostalgia and an entitled attitude. It's not about what year it is anymore.
>>9279073Hey, that’s me!
>>9277135Correct. The game Rummikub is an even closer analog, the scoring is just simplified because mahjongg basically requires an abacus to calculate points.
>>9276897I think it's more like the Japanese equivalent of hunting games
>>9279063I've 100%'d all the mainline Yakuza games and still feel I barely know Mahjong at all.
>>9277087>wish there was a good tutorial online on how to play Mahjong.http://mahjonginmame.com/
>>9276897>windows solitaireStill one of the best games of all time. I still put some music on and play it.
>>9279063I 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.
>>9277127*read Chinese (like Japs can)
>>9279045>a mahjong controllerYou mean your hands?
>>9279045What's a mahjong controller, a mecha replica of a Chinese man for you to pilot?
>>9279073Boomers are over 60.
>>9276897If there are tits involved I will play any game regardless of how mundane it is.
>>9276910Don't pretend you don't know what OP means you pedantic faggot
>>9280150Why 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.
>>9280560>actually the most boomer-ass transistor-radio useless gadget thing>can you imagine having this actually plugged into a gaming device, in your own fuckin house
>>9280583trying too hard, anon
>>9280596you're not the black president of me. I'm being deadass sincere, that thing's fucking stupid and I will fight you if you call me a liar about it again.
>>9280583If I played mahjong I'd love to have one of those at home, although I would prefer a mecha Chinese man controller instead
>>9280636you'd also need the softwareprobably the machine and its moon rune documentationbourgeois as fuck, probably cheaper to buy a chinese man, and a mecha
>>9280661>you'd also need the softwareMAME>>9280661MAME+wikipediaYou can learn to play irl mahjong in a week. It's just a variation on rummy with tiles instead of cards.
>>9280671yeah i have a windows NT-ish mahjongg game, played the shit out of it>MAMEok 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
>>9277005is it real jong or just that shanghai solitaire matching shit
>>9280560>>9280568once 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)
>>9277087>I wish there was a fingers google internet
>>9280560>>9280568I 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.
>>9280661The 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?
>>9281054We already have video poker and blackjack machines all over the country here.
>>9281057Not 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.
posting some tables
>>9281062I 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.
>>9280075The Baby Boomer generation is over 60. Internet "boomers" are anyone older than you who you disagree with.
>>9276897>>9277087Yeah. But what is the most Japanese boomer game ever? My vote goes for "Mahjong Erotica Golf".
>>9283839Breathtaking. 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
>>9281054It'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.
>>9281054It's like any card game. The tiles you get are random and you gotta make winning sets out of your hand.
>>9284591I meant whether or not the machines were used for gambling in Japan.
>>9280583Anywhere near as bad as tank controllers or flight yokes, or steering wheels?
>>9279073Yet (You) spend a huge amount of time desperately seeking their attention.
Literally ask to go in the back of any Chinese takeout, they'll all have a table they play at.
>>9276910person who likes bomberman
>>92768972023 goal is to be able to fit into a bunny costume and look sexy
>>9286073If you’re a girl I support this
>>9284731he's right, that's how the word is usedyou can cope about it, mald a little, maybe even piss your pants, but you can't change the fact that words are made up constructs and frankly if humans spoke like dolphins and bats i think we'd be in a way better state
>>9286140Am a girl, but chubby and gettin on now lol
>>9276897yes. but it's really funny that the cabs have like 20+ buttons.
>>9286157>cope mald pissDon't put things you do on me.
>>9276897Add in 16 bit digitized nipples or anime depictions. That got a lot of quarters in back in the 90s.>Spend $9 and effort at mahjong but never a pussy pic.
>>9280560>>9280568For 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.
>>9283839You will never see a vagina no matter how much you spend. I have no idea how drunk and underage players never understood this.
>>9280605>deadassYou have to be 18 or older to post here.
>>9280560I'm glad they advertise it's for amusement only, wouldn't want to accidentally use it for serious business mahjong.
>>9287794It'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.
>>9287164Why would you want to see that? Literally the second-least visually-appealing body part on a woman.
>>9288447>second-least visually-appealingw-whats the first?
>>9288447I think they’re pretty aesthetically pleasing, personally.
>>9276897>NichibutsuSee thats how you know its good. *kisses fingers*
You can almost see her nips.
>>9276897>>9289116>>9289125I 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.
>>9289192Just look at this gang of highly skilled pervs with AMBITION.
>>9289203I 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.
>>9289217my dream job
>>9276897>zoomers can't even into card gamesFucking sad, man.
>>9281838>The Baby Boomer generation is over 60. Internet "boomers" are anyone older than you who you disagree with.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.
>>9289040>>9288447I think you're probably homosexual
>>9289353Nah. Boomers are members of the Baby Boomer generation and that's it. No "internet boomer" or "30 year old boomer".
>>9288447this but completely unironicallyhave you fuckers not seen how gross a vag looks outside art? it's nasty and i wish more women would cover it up with pubic hair>>9289229>mahjong is a card gameretard
>>9289415Word 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.
>>9289502nah *flips bird*
>>9289525>flips birdby the 10th definition of the word bird
>>9289217Another crazed Nichibutsu mahjong, with their very own caped crusader (the superhero, of course, decked out in an owl costume instead of a bat, naturally, replete with owl emblem) fighting forces of evil, no doubt to help himself to the damsels in distress.
>>9290468One can only assume he at least gets some head from the evil ladies he's hunting as well.
>>9289192KEK man, some of the things you guys dig up from retro game history is priceless. They really do look like they could be part of a schlocky string of side quests in the modern Yakuza games.
>>9289416>solitaire bad>solitaire isn't a card gameCommon core apparently includes a revision of reading comprehension, as well, it seems.
I'm a 37 year old zoomer.
>>9290782he didn't say it was bad dipshit he asked is it something older people do you're the one implyin it was badlearnhow2read
>>9279073>>9280150>>9289353>>9289528Fuck off with your rddit-speak. "Zoomer" also used to refer to active and productive members of the Baby Boomer generation. It now refers to narcissistic and insecure members of Generation Z that speak/post their opinion on anything before even asking questions about it. They're like annoying little brothers enviously seeking their older siblings' attention.Why the fuck are you even posting on the retro video games board if you hate it and its userbase so much, twoon?
>>9290812He didn't understand that solitaire is a card game.
>>9289192>featuring token white guy Tony Marsh
>>9280150>still forcing a dead meme word>not cringePick one
>>9289192>>9290845>Tony MarshHE LOOKS LIKE MOOT.
>>9290873Guess he was a weeb back then too
>>9290805And I’m a 27 year old gen X-er.
>>9290805>>9290982And you'll both nbw, so grow up.
>>9289192Why is Fujita-san's photo taken outside?
>>9291159Same reason Sekimoto's was.
>>9290873>>9290971Who knew all along moot was the love child born of the loins of the Nichibutsu Limey?
>>9280560found the panel this controller is based on
The machine is what you would expect.
>>9276897Definitely more like poker for the Far East.
>>9292158do the arcade operators have to clean off the cum stains? Must be a lot of work.
>>9280560One day I'm going to get this, I love the idea of it.>>9276897mahjong isn't equivalent to basic bitch luck of the draw card games because it actually requires a brain
>>9294360>mahjong isn't equivalent to basic bitch luck of the draw card games because it actually requires a brainBut aren't Mahjong arcade games sometimes based on solitaire mahjong?
>>9292494I'll give ya ten bucks for it.
>>9294382Shanghai Mahjong is referred to as Shanghai in game titles.I'm sure Shanghai arcade games exist, but why play that when you can play futanarai mahjong.
I bought a nice vintage richi mahjong set once off of ebay but couldn't get anyone to play with me so I sold it -_-
This was like kemono friends 30 years before the anime. You get to bully and strip animal eared girls when you win.The 100th battle is with the fox who becomes a 9 tail fox.
>>9294480fox got some fan art for the 30th anniversary of the game
>>9294398I remember getting this game as a kid and not having any idea how to play it.
>>9276910People over 70. OP is a retard.
>>9279073>butthurt nostalgiaDefine this. What classifies nostalgia as “butthurt”?
