I'm about halfway into Akagi, it is worth it to finish it if I have no idea how to play mahjong?

Yes it is.

Also it's easy to learn how to play. Play some matches on tenhou

If you made it to the half without knowing how to play you should be fine for the rest, Washizu Mahjong is different than normal anyway.

Please read 2-3 sites before playing and even then try the singleplayer games first.
Playing without knowing what you do is not only frustrating for yourself but also for your opponents, a player that left because he couldn't ron for his no Yaku hand or because someone ron'd his discard just kills the whole fun for everyone.

Usually, a game lasts around 30 minutes, so please, if you're not going to stay until the end, respect the other players and don't join a new game.

Also keep in mind that Mahjong is more a game of "not losing" than straightforward winning.
Furthermore you play with 3 other people and luck plays a big part in it, so dont expect to win more than 1 out 4 games, especially not as a beginner.

If you read some of the linked sites and still have questions feel free to ask.

Would Akagi beat this guy?
>>
>>101958962
Nah, just stick with Kaji.
Akagi has an infamously piss-poor payoff.
