I used to play something on the Master System, for which I know quite a bit about Japanese Mahjong. I know some of the special hands, like buried treasure, 13 orphans, 9 gates etc. The Dora, is quite useful in Japanese Mahjong, and that is what I go for, if I have 2 tiles that match the showing tile in the wall.

Quote originally posted by Wings Don't Cry:
Correct me if I'm wrong but do you use something called Riichi in Japanese Mahjong when you are in tenpai and it acts as some sort of multiplier when you obtain a winning hand?
Yes, Riichi is used in Japanese Mahjong, and I think it either doubles your value or adds another point to your score. I've rarely played Riichi, because I usually get Pungs/Kongs to help my hand quite a bit.
