    NOTE: Because of my work schedule, I cannot always post a column every week.

    The tile graphics used in this column are primarily a font that was modified by the author (adding corner indices and a Joker tile from a font created by Yoshiki Kita and available for free download at https://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~mn8y-kt/font/font.html. Occasionally, the "Canton" font has been used in some columns. The Canton font is available for sale at https://www.partae.com/fonts/canton/canton.html.
