Local Tournaments


Riichi Nomi hosts local tournaments every few months. Smaller in scale, these take place during a single day and are generally capped at 16 players. They are generally hosted in the club president’s apartment and played on her automatic mahjong tables. There are sometimes smaller entry fees and prizes for local tournaments.

Online Tournaments

At the end of each month, Riichi Nomi hosts a small knockout tournament on an online mahjong platform for players to compete in from the comfort of their homes. These monthly knockout tournaments are open to anyone in the Riichi Nomi discord and can earn you a cool discord title at the top of our server for the month! Join our discord here to play.
