Yes, just did: +1.11
So king2nextthrone stood its ground after a test tournament and 140 test games.
Very good. It was also my feeling while playing. It makes the white job harder.

Measured Brandubh game balances at the moment:
Ordinary rules: +1.49
King cannot return to throne: +1.36
King captured next to the throne by 2 blacks: +1.08
Hagbard, did you compute king2nextthrone balance now tournament 146 ended?

It could also be possible we have to combine the 2 variants to balance the game. ;)
We've done several games Hnefihunter and myself with [king2nextthrone + noreturn] and it shows it's too much in favour of attackers.

We don't know king2nextthrone's current balance but it looks pretty good to us.

Re: Brandubh 7x7

First of all, thank you Aage for giving a test to these ideas! I don't know how the balance could move, but if I refer to this: .../... I've compared it to the game on Dragonheels' Lair that uses my old rules. Of 314 games, there were 144 white wins against 166 black, with 4 draws. Using Aage's nota...

Re: Brandubh 7x7

.../... the particular case of squares arround the throne could be modified to allow sandwiched captures of the King with only 2 attackers instead of 3, like this: Rule 7a.png This will only require 25% of all attackers to be done instead of the current 37.5%. .../... Dear Brandubh players, may I h...

Re: Bookmarking games replay

I found a (pretty complicated) way to bookmark POST requests with bookmarlet. But I won't explain it there without your prior permission.

Re: Bookmarking games replay

Thanks for the answer, even if I don't understand it.

Does it mean we can't bookmark an interesting game for later in any way?

I also discover the direct live game link stopped working once the game left My current games list.

Bookmarking games replay

This question if for Hagbard but the answer could interest anybody. I would like to bookmark interresting games, for example the game identified by netspil1x 35355f343738335f73 . The direct URL for live game works: http://aagenielsen.dk/hnefatafl_net_medklasser.php?netspil1x=35355f343738335f73 The r...

Re: Brandubh 7x7

Hi all. Aage current test matches will show us if changing the starting position changes the balance of the game, i could be wrong, but I doubt it will change it enough. I humbly think the rules should rather be slightly adapted to consider the small number of attackers compared to Tablut. For examp...

Re: Member introductions

Hi, I'm David from France south coast and I play (only Brandubh) as branan.

I discovered this game very recently so I'm probably more enthousiastic than good. 😜

Nevermind, I'm ok to loose and learn. πŸ‘
