Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

This is not good, because I can create somewhere and then play both players in a one tournament at home and I will actually have a spy. Sometimes such a loophole comes useful, when man & wife or father & son need two user names for one computer. Before the tournament all names are evaluated for pos...

Re: Hnefatafl Internet Championship

Copied from small forum: I prefer the Knock-out system. It's better to play a single game against one person until the final round. In 2016 we were 33 players. Two rounds and the winner was found after 80 days. This year the timing is tightened a bit, and the winner is expected after 70 days, that i...
