Check The Winning Conditions Anytime You Want
Even the simplest game you can play in Mahjong Soul Yostar contains many different tile combinations. These combinations are known as “yaku” and they have very different names. You must have a minimum of one yaku in your hand in order to legally win a round, so any of these combinations can bring you victory. Thing is, they are very hard to remember. We have trouble with remembering the “little three dragons” yaku, for example: What kinds of tiles are needed for this combination? If you are like us, we have good news: You can see the entire yaku list anytime you want during a game, so there is no need to remember anything.
