Why
I need this to fuel my gambling addiction
I want a monocolor set with Zhuyin sublegend. Accent and novelties' colors are inspired from Mahjong tiles.
All stock colors, so no colormatching needed (yay!). Colors used are photographed and listed below.

More


GMK Stock WS4 Cream (alphas), CR Black (legend and sublegends), P3 Red N7 Green V4 Blue.
Photo is taken under warm room light in my wife's dressing room vanity, using her phone.

Would like to see some enter or bottom row novelties and maybe remove one of the 1u spacebars but other than that this is perfect. Great job  :thumb:

The deskmat matches more with cangjie sublegend, as Hongkonger mainly uses cangjie or quick input, which is basically a simplified version of cangjie. If you want the keep the deskmat design, I think a base kit with cangjie sublegend makes more sense, and you can add a alt alpha kit for zhuyin sublegend.

Also please donĺt use Mandarin pinyin next to something that mentions Hong Kong. They donĺt belong to be in the same place. Removing Zýmō from the deskmat would be a lot better.

Looks great! Excited for this.
Consider adding R2 1u accented Esc for 40s since there's no R2 novelties available and the accents are fairly important here (as well as making the r3 1.5u enter accent colored).
I'd also add r2 1u home to allow macro columns on 60%/TKL.

Really like the novelties and the theme of the set. But also agreed with what others pointed out that novelties should have R2 and a bit more variety, it would be nice.

Looks great, but please expand the novelties more, seems like you can do a lot more variety in the novelties.

Also could do with tile numbers 1 to 9, a full set in the novelties, instead of just 1 and 9 (missing numbers 2-8 for novelty tiles).

I'd also add r2 1u home to allow macro columns on 60%/TKL.

Will strongly consider forcing 1.5u enter accent colored. Thanks for the great inputs!
As for R2 1u nov/accent and r2 1u home let me see what I can do about it without driving the target price up by much.

Pls, consider supporting HHKB 7u bottom row for Mac/Linux (2x 1.5 Super + second 1u Alt).

I will consider making a HHKB-compat novelties instead on the Novelties kit. Thanks!

I want to learn how to play Mahjong! Will the deskmat have enough information to teach me how to play? I want to make Asian Grandma's happy that some white kid wants to play Mahjong with them  :)

Sadly the deskmat won't be enough to cover even 75% information I initially wanted to lay out :(. Smaller and dense group of typefaces are not only illegible but I am most worried to bleeds since printed on cloth instead of paper.

Ching 有冇出沖 kit 賣?

Hahahaha 屌, good one though.

The deskmat price is just a placeholder until I get the exact retail price from my lead vendor.

Understand that you want a zhuyin base for yourself, but thematically, would really love a cangjie base kit.
Novelties are great, perhaps a 食糊 or 自摸 enter novelty would fit.

This set really really deserves to use the Chinese mods piloted by GMK Shanshui. It doesn't seem right that I can't make this a completely Chinese set.

Otherwise great and we are long overdue for a mahjong themed set.

I think Night Runner R2 was the first set to do it



This allows for the 65%/75% support to double as macro column keys with the addition of just one more key. Nice easy way to give support.

Love the desk mat!! Here are some suggestions from me personally:
I think the darker version desk mat could change to a neon light theme.
Could you possibly change the 万 on the bottom left corner to 萬, please?
Maybe you could change the font of those mahjong to the font on a real mahjong. I think that will look nicer.

The desk mat is stunning but I think the kit itself is a bit lacking compared to the desk mat...
Will you consider adding more novelties?

I recommend you not to use GMK due to the long waiting time.
You can consider using JTK or Domikey triple shot. In this way, you can add more characteristics to the set by using mahjong's colour for the font. (e.g. white base, blue main legend, red sub legend)

I would 100% second the suggestion to use another manufacturer. I love everything about the set but will sadly sit this one out if it's GMK.

It's absurd enough that Shanshui looks to be at least delayed into Q2 realistically and we won't see Houhai till sometime in 2023.

I think R2 Out would be a better candidate for that since it can also double as an Esc key for 40s.
R2 Home in and of itself sees vanishingly little use, and the macro column use case doesn't help that by much. At least with Out you get a bit of extra utility. :)
