Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

Modified: - Or more like the Football World Cup running right now: Round 1 is roughly half of the players, with the lower ratings. Two winners from each group go to Round 2. Round 2 is rest of the players plus winners from Round 1. One winner from each group goes to the Final. This scheme in work l...

Re: Fetlar Hnefatafl

In the Fetlar game, as outlined by the Fetlar Hnefatafl Panel, it is always possible for white to create a center draw fort in his first two moves, and nothing can stop it.

Yet another scheme: Round 1 is roughly half of the players, with the lower ratings. One winner from each group goes to Round 2. Round 2 is rest of the players plus winners from Round 1. One winner from each group goes to the Final. This scheme in work last year 2017 would look like this: Registered...

Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

Thank you for the input! I like the idea to have a Masters group. However, I would like to see at least 3 players come out of this group, not just 2. This group will be very difficult to advance from. I think it would be a shame to lose 3 or 4 top players before the actual final round. ... We could ...
