More Brandubh balances.

The Brandubh 7x7 game balance is at the moment measured to +1.34 (setup Brandubh cross 7x7).
To ensure that there aren't other setups with a finer balance, two alternative setups were tested: Brandubh cross no throne and Brandubh circle no throne, both without a throne.

Game balance results are:

Code: Select all

x . . b . . x
. b . . . b .
. . . w . . .
b . w k w . b
. . . w . . .
. b . . . b .
x . . b . . x
Brandubh circle no throne 7x7, balance -2.00 (15 games)

Code: Select all

x . . b . . x
. . . b . . .
. . . w . . .
b b w k w b b
. . . w . . .
. . . b . . .
x . . b . . x
Brandubh cross no throne 7x7, balance -2.75 (15 games)


So, best Brandubh setup is still the Brandubh cross 7x7, game balance +1.34
