Very nice, thank you. So there's even a name for it... :D

@gold That may be a difference in translation. The above rule set uses the term "han pai" and that these are worth one/two han. I also think the rule that specifies the minimum requirement also says han. I couldn't say whether this rule set is typical or necessarily the best though. :)

You should throw Shogi in there as well while you're talking about Chess and Go.

comment What manners are specific to mahjong?
Onegaishimasu not the "standard greeting of Go," is very specifically Japanese. Go is played in a lot more countries than just Japan though. It didn't even originate in Japan, Go just recently became popular in the western world through the surge of Japanese culture there, hence the image.
