Navigating the Screen

Understanding the UI

1. Shows the 13 tiles in your hand. When you draw a tile, it is shown as the 14th tile, to the right of your hand. When your turn comes, select a tile to discard it.

2. When you are in a position to call riichi, tsumo, ron, pon, chi, or kan, a prompt will appear. In the case of pon, chi, and kan, this prompt can be hidden. You may also ignore this prompt by right-clicking any empty space in the Doman Mahjong window.
To hide these prompts, set Display Calls to Off. However, this option defaults to On at the start of a new hand.

3. The star icon indicates which player is the dealer. It is also displayed in the center of the table.
The compass direction shown below each player's name is their current seat wind. Players can form a yaku by collecting three wind tiles that match their seat wind. The role of dealer rotates counterclockwise, from east, to south, to west, to north.

4. A game of Doman mahjong is played over eight hands. The first four are the "East" round and the last four are the "South" round. Collecting three wind tiles that match the current round forms a yaku.

5. These sticks indicate any points carried over in the event of a draw. If a player declares riichi, the 1,000 points they pay are also shown here. When a player wins a hand, these points are added to their score. A stick with several black dots is worth 100 points and a stick with a single red dot is worth 1,000 points.
Every time a hand is replayed, a special bonus known as "honba" increases by one, also indicated here. When a player produces a winning hand, they will receive an additional 300 points for each honba.

6. Indicates the dora for the current hand. If a player includes a tile identical to the dora in a winning hand, they will receive bonus han, which increases points earned.

7. Buttons for toggling the various settings. For more information, see the Checking Ratings and Settings section.
