Without a doubt, this is the best opening formation for black, so the main task of white, in the opening, is to prevent black from building it, by aggressive way through sacrifice

Re: Tablut

https://i.ibb.co/vYRSh5D/027.jpg I think is better to use uppercase and lowercase letters, 'cause, for example, if I want to explain white's key moves in the "FomCa" debute I will say: is "E" and "f" squares and it will be clearer than if I said: E and F. Catch? Although, apparently, it is clear th...

Re: Tablut

It dawned on me! I have a new name for this debut - FomCa (in honor of Fomich and Casshern). In russian "фомка" is the thieves' name for a small crowbar for picking locks. In my opinion - a very accurate name, what do you think?

Re: Tablut

Regarding specific move strategies, I have only addressed: Move 1: e2-c2, e4-f4 Move 2: e8-g8, f5-f6 Move 3: b5-b7, e3-h3 Move 4: d1-d3, g5-g1 Sorry again, I should also explain that each move consists of a black move followed by a white move. Move 1 is black e2-c2 and white e4-f4. And so on... Now...

Re: Tablut

After black opens play, white has 6 possible moves: 1. d4 2. c4/d3 3. b4/d2 4. c3 5. b3/c2 6. a3/ c1 Oh, it's hard! 1. d4 (you mean d5-d4 or e4-d4? Or both?) 2. c4/d3 (c4 is answer to black's first move e2-c2 and d3 is answer to black's first move d1-d2? And c4 is e4-c4 or c5-c4?) :oops: Need diagr...

Re: Tablut

As for the terminology - I suggest dividing the field into four parts for better orientation: upper left; upper right; lower left and lower right and introduce the concept of perimeters from the edge of the board to the center: 1, 2, 3, 4, which, respectively, consist of verticals and horizontals: 1...

Re: Tablut

At first, sorry for my english :roll: About simmetry, I think that not all beginners understand that (for example): e2-c2 is = e2-g2; b5-b7; b5-b3; e8-g8; e8-c8; h5-h3; h5-h7. Unlike chess and checkers, in Hnefatafl it is necessary to navigate in four directions plus the wrong side and, based on thi...

Re: 2020 Garðaríki Tournament umpire

А серьёзно - бесполезная тема. Ну натыкают кому-нибудь больше остальных и шо, на выходе получится идеальный судья?)
Хотя интересно))) Типа в "мафию" рубанёмся.
