Q: How did you originally discover multiplayer Mahjong?

My weekend playtime is limited.
Q: How long have you played at Mahjong Time?

Q: What do you like the most about Mahjong Time?

Q: Which style of Mahjong do you like best? Why is this your favorite and why?
A: I started on the site playing HK, but immediately switched to TW and never looked back. I found TW alot more challenging, especially MP6 games which makes the game more strategic.
Q: What is better: playing live or playing online?
A: I used to play live almost every Saturday night into Sunday morning. As the years went by, I was not able to handle the night owl hours. Eventually, the live games diminished to Sunday
afternoon games every so often. To be honest, I would rather play online than live. I love the excitement of playing on a guild. Also get a chance to talk to people all around the
world and make new friends.
Q: On the subject of online play, what kind of advice would you give to the online player?
A: As I only play fun games, I suggest all players to join a guild, have lots of fun, and compete hard. But don't let the excitement of guilding get the best of you. At the end of the day,
its still what its called, a Fun Game.
