Re: Copenhagen Hnefatafl

On the edge rule - whether or not the king should be captured on the board edge. http://aagenielsen.dk/kongepaakant.png Under the Fetlar edge rule, the king in the diagram is not captured - even though he very much indeed looks captured. This a bit awkward situation is avoided when allowing the king...

When I look at this article: http://www.treheima.ca/viking/tafl.htm I look at the list of possible Tafl pieces that have been found. I see a few sets that could be partial sets of 24+12+1 pieces.

Re: Berserk Hnefatafl

Do we have a win/loose-overview for the berserk-games played so far? I can't get rid off the feeling that white in Berserk is too weak ... could the edge-rule be too hard? At the moment, from 34 Berserk games and 10 players, the statistics is 19 white wins, 12 black wins and 3 draws. But let's keep...

Re: Copenhagen Hnefatafl

Are the contours of the Copenhagen rules beginning to form? Something like this: The full Fetlar rules set rule+1) Black wins by taking the king (as described in the Fetlar rules). Black has also won if the situation arises that all white's pieces have been rendered immobile by encirclement. (The ma...

Re: Copenhagen Hnefatafl

I am beginning to lean towards an 'extra strong copenhagen', whereby all repeated board positions become illegal on the third repetition, with the exception of a mobile king edge fort exit, which results in a white win. This could be extended into an "ultra strong copenhagen" where three types of r...

Re: About the draw concept

I am beginning to lean towards an 'extra strong copenhagen', whereby all repeated board positions become illegal on the third repetition, with the exception of a mobile king edge fort exit, which results in a white win. Sounds like an idea; and possible to implement, too. I like the shieldwall rule...

Re: About the draw concept

http://aagenielsen.dk/centerfort3_r.png http://aagenielsen.dk/encircle3_r.png There is a simpler way of turning these situations into black wins: if the king can be captured on the board edge , black won by simple capture of the king. Together with the shield wall rule, also the position below is a...

Re: Copenhagen Hnefatafl

http://aagenielsen.dk/centerfort2_r.png There is a simpler way of solving this early draw situation. The German page http://www.hnefatafl.net/englisch/ehnefatafl.html mentions a shield wall rule: " Capturing by Using the Shieldwallrule. If there is the same number of opposing taflmen in a row in fr...
