World Tafl Federation Championship 2014, September 1st - January 29th 2015.
After 5 months of heavy fighting -
The Asgård tournament's 72 games are completed and we have a winner:
World Tafl Federation Champion 2014 is
Gold "Schachus", Berlin, Germany.
Silver "Plantagenêt", Champagne-Ardennes, FR.
Bronze Arne Roland ("nath"), Berlin, Germany.
The Copenhagen rules, described here.
Points are 1 for won, 0 for lost and 0.5 for a draw.
Umpire: Tim Millar (crust). For Millar's games, umpire is Aage Nielsen (Hagbard).
Two players per preliminary group qualify for the final.
(All other players will also have their own final, divided into two final groups by strengths.)
Games already done in the preliminary round are not repeated, but the results are transferred to the finals.
Preliminary round: each player can use 10 days for 10 moves.
Final round: each player can use 20 days for 10 moves.
Even if a player would time out from this rule, he does always have 1.5 day to do his current move.
But never more than 15 days to do his current move.
There are daily updates and occasionally some game commentary (only on completed games of course) on the
World Tafl Federation facebook page.
