Re: Brandubh 7x7

Copied from the small forum: 10-06/22:24 Jrton80: I too remember Ytreza's thought experiment and I never bought into it. First, there were just too many logical gaps in what I read that I could not take it seriously. Second, I still have yet to see proof it is possible. I am not playing that phone a...

Re: Brandubh 7x7

This discussion on white's and black's roles in repetitions called for an investigation of the games archive. All games in the archive (all except for the new non-tafl types Saami Sahkku, Daabloe, Cuhkka and Hex) were searched through. 27,550 games all the way back to start of archiving Dec. 23rd 20...

Re: Brandubh 7x7

Further copied from the small forum: 10-03/18:33 Adam: @Hagbard, sorry, i disagree. I think its pretty clear. The rule says: Perpetual repetitions are forbidden. The player who causes the repetition must find an alternative move or else he loses the game. ChaolAibhnes move 15 creates the board patte...

Re: Brandubh 7x7

So a very clear and straightforward repetition rule to use would be if the same BOARD POSITION is detected on 3 occasions then black is declared the winner irrespective of the sequence of moves that bring about the final position. I don't know if it would have an effect on the game balance but from...

I'm in favor of giving a win to Black in case of a repetition. That would be very clear and easy to program.
Of course, unhandyandy's suggestion to have black win repetitions would solve it all. It is practically always white who pressures to get out anyway.

Re: Brandubh 7x7

Copied from the small forum: 10-02/13:47 ChaolAibhne: @Hagbard, in my game as black against mmgaari at Brandubh 2 I've just been surprised to have the system impose a loss on me on the grounds of repetition. There had warnings about repetition, but it wasn't specified who was doing so; it was only a...

Hi Hagbard
If the sahkku pieces don't work properly, leave them... have no problem with that.
How about these pieces for the ongoing sea battle tournament?
As always, I'll send them in two posts...
Fun pieces, thank you! Inserted in the Sea battle T circle 11x11.

Re: I've started to draw a few graphics for aagenielsen.dk

Maybe I could add arrows, but then I have to design 4 different versions of each piece? I'm afraid that's going to ruin the design on a mere 40x40 pixel format... I thought, pieces can only go one direction in the lower row, the opposite direction in the middle row, and back the original direction ...
