Re: Masterluke 'new' member

I would have to add to "Being a sucker for history, and especially medieval times," with unrealistic big boob, but people would need to see your FB page to get that. BTW, he writes comics with the typically big boob females, with ambiguous sexually which is rather new which, while I could not read a...

Re: Tafl for 3 players

I have been staring at this for hours, trying to think through the possibilities and it is a bit mind boggling. It is an interesting - so many ways for Black to mess up if they are not cooperating

Re: Rule variant between "Old hnefatafl" and Copenhagen

While I tried to read all this, I keep getting hung up on the concept of black repetition. I just cannot see it. Things like sqAree's imgur example (https://imgur.com/a/yEbcrNe) would be just so improbable it boggles the mind. I supposed maybe when I first started playing but in any game I have play...

Re: Berserk Hnefatafl

Re: Re writing the rules a bit

I always thought

The Berserk Rule: When a piece makes a capture, the player may continue to move the same piece as long as he makes captures with it.
The king may finish a berserk run with a winning move to a corner square.

to short for a complex rule which can be devastating when used.

Re: Re writing the rules a bit

Berserk Hnefatafl Rules 1. Two players may participate. One player plays the king's side, with a king and his defenders, and the other player plays the attackers. There are twelve defenders, one of the defenders being the king's knight, and twenty-four attackers, four of them being viking commander...

Re: Re writing the rules a bit

I just added that specifically for the way the software works. I ran into that not so long ago where someone through they had a draw because they kept moving i10-i11 when it was really a loss. It does help to set certain expectations. He could have resigned, but I was not giving a draw when I could ...

Re writing the rules a bit

When I first start playing, reading the rules confused me, mainly because the section were not all together. I have gotten very annoyed losing games because I missed something which was not where I thought it should be. So, I rearranged things a bit only adding a little bit here and there Fetlar Hne...
