I'm an EGF low dan, playing Go since late 2006. I was active in the community at Sensei's and the former SE-1.0 site shidogo.com, now switched my attention to BCG.SE

I'm involved in the English and German Go community in various way, most prominently I've created a platform for bad Go jokes.

comment How can I quickly calculate the shanten number in Mahjong?
@PieterGeerkens Yes, I found a way that works somewhat nicely, luckily. I should have linked the questions. I'll leave this on here, however, because it would be awesome to also have some input from a veteran player's perspective - I have very few experience with mahjong as a player sadly.

The general idea is close to what I'm doing right now though.

comment Is there a competitive version of werewolf/mafia?
I think this idea would work, but you should ensure that the percentage of players of different teams per opposing side is equal. Else, players could attempt to lose on purpose for the greater good of their team mates.
