From dices to tiles

I like your approach, c00pdNnatop. Speaking of "dots" I see the following version of events. Mrs. Hudson before acquaintance with mahjong played a lot games with dices ("yahtzee" etc.). When she looked at tiles D1, D3, D4 the appearance of "spots" reminded her spots at dices -- each such spot was corresponding to one point. So, she "sees" 14 spots at Dot tiles??
