Tight Contest for the Sherlock Holmes of Mahjong

Sherlocks

ONLINE March 2015 - This year's Sherlock Holmes of Mahjong contest brought the largest field of competitors yet, and the crowd at the top is still tight; the title could belong to anyone. With four competitors tied for 1st, and five more just one point behind, the last couple of questions will be the make-or-break opportunity for many. The contest is likely to come down to the timing; how fast each player is able to get their answers in. So set your alarm clocks, and get sluthing!

Congratz #2, Adrie!

Adrie, you have conceptually solved mini mystery #1. Congratulations! Although I must correct you. My version is "Chi"+"Hua"+"Hua" where "Hua" stands for FLOWER. Please check it with "Green Book". Here are excerpts from it: "3.4.20 Flower replacement ("Bu Hua") When you pick a Flower Tile, you may expose it, declaring "flower" ("hua") and take a replacement tile from the back end of the wall, until there are no more Flower tiles in your hand." "3.6.1 Regulations governing verbal calls during the game During the progress of game, the player must verbalize all claims for discards, to make a chow, pung, or kong, and when picking a flower or declaring mahjong. ... When taking a Flower replacement (Bu Hua), the player must say "Hua". He should not call out the names of the tiles when discarding, and is forbidden to discuss, gossip or communicate in his native language or other foreign language."
