On the 20th of December,1999, he came to VEGA with mahjong pro-players,
Junko Takahasi and Taro Kaneko and studied "Three-players Mahjong".
Mr. Sloper had worked at SEGA and Atari. He is actually working at Activision.
Among many games designed in the past, "Shanghai"is probably the most well-known.
At present he is engaged in the development and operation of five games.
Lived in Los Angeles, this was his 14th visit to Japan.
Five years as a Mahjong player, he practices four times a week and plays often
in American style.
He bets, but the rate is much lower than usual Japanese practice.
He loves not only playing mahjong but "Mahjong-hai" itself.
So he is a collector of antique "mahjong-hai"
not only Japanese But also Chinese and America.
Here is a message from Mr. Tom Sloper for you !
「Please learn the many flavors of mar-jan ,
and you will experience good tastes !」
