Mahjongg madness, DIY Mahjongg table

Okay, so what do we have here? As you may know from previous posts or the tag-cloud we are quite into the game of Mahjongg, playing Riichi rules. What we've been missing all the time was a fantastic automatic mahjongg table. Of course it is much too expensive and huge - on top of that those beasts of machanics engeneering need frequend service - which isn't available in Europe (it seems like this one was a rumor and is not true for the ones linked above...). So we set out to build one Ourselves (of course no automatic one as we are no team of engeneers with a fully equipped work shop). Read on for details and building instructions.

Mahjong ruleset, TeXed

As we've been playing more and more Mahjong (not the solitair version, the real thing) recently and just stumbeled upon #mahjong in rizon where we got linked a really really nice ruleset, here i though ... well, wouldn't it be nice to have this as a booklet printout so you can check the rules or yaku right at the table if you're unsure.

Okay, so after almost two days of fighting with XeLaTeX to get nice unicode support and fighting defoma for getting a nice font its finally done!

You can fetch the PDF here, the booklet printing (just print it, fold the whole stack in the middle (short-edge oriented) and staple it together) version as postscript is available here.

Also note that there might be a few mistakes due to the hardcore TeX action in the typesetting, feel free to report those to me to get 'em fixed. For errors in the original document please contact the original author or me.

I hope you're having your fun playing with those rule sheets, i hope they came out nicely :P. For a nice, short yaku overview just surf up here.
