History Craft Hnefatafl 11x11

Post by Hagbard » Wed Apr 24, 2013 12:47 pm

The History Craft 11x11 test tournament is completed.

Seven players did the History Craft Hnefatafl 11x11 test tournament and played against each other 42 games, the results being:
25 white wins (defenders) (60%)
16 black wins (attackers) (38%)
1 draws (2%)

The History Craft rules seem to favour white, not too unbalanced, I suppose.

The five highest rated players out of the seven played against each other 20 games, the results being:
11 white wins (defenders) (55%)
8 black wins (attackers) (40%)
1 draw (5%)
So the History Craft game balance improves with player experience.


For comparison, the Fetlar Hnefatafl Championship tournament 2012.
156 games and 13 participants. Two participants timed out in most of their games. Another participant timed out in three couples of games (each game couple against same opponent). Excluding all these, left are 84 games (42 full game couples). The result of these was:
46 white wins (55%)
30 black wins (36%)
8 draws (9%)

The five highest rated players played against each other 20 Fetlar games, the results being:
11 white wins (defenders) (55%)
8 black wins (attackers) (40%)
1 draw (5%)
This is same result as for History Craft.
