What is this game?

The image is a screencap from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. It looked like some sort of strange twist between Scrabble and dominoes. One of the characters counted up how many points she had.

As always, thanks, MeFi!

Looks like Mahjong to me.

Mahjongg. It's actually more like Gin Rummy than anything else you've probably heard of, but the scoring is bizarre beyond belief.

The recent anime series Saki was about that game.

As has been noted above, it's Mahjong, but mostly I'm here to compliment your taste in animu.
