Fencer  Scheduled downtime 5. veebruar 2014, 13:50:16
A scheduled downtime of BrainKing is planned on Thursday 6th February 2014, 07:00 GMT+01:00 due to system upgrade and maintentance. If the downtime duration exceeds 60 minutes (which is not likely but also not impossible), BrainKing would automatically suspend the game time for 24 hours. Thank you for understanding.

Fencer  Temporary domain issue 3. september 2013, 10:46:43
Fencer toimetatud (3. september 2013, 11:46:25)
I have just realized that brainking.com domain has expired (I must have missed the renewal), so many people will probably have troubles getting to the site today.
It should be solved tomorrow. In meantime, brainking.cz can be used instead. I have also suspended time control until the domain is back. I apologize for the inconvenience.
EDIT: The domain seems to be restored now, but I better keep the time suspended at least for 24 hours.

Nagu olen juba maininud BrainKing`i blogis (või teen seda varsti ), on sel aastal (nagu tavaliseltki) üsna palju soovitud Jõulutegevust. Siin see nüüd on. Igaühel on võimalus saada
Ajuvankri liikmelisuse tellimisel kuni 125% preemiat - see põhineb populaarsel värvikoodide süsteemil. Tuletame meelde selle tegevuse reegleid:

Kui näed väikest vilkuvat lampi pealehel või vasakus veerus lingi Tasuline liikmelisus kõrval, siis on preemia aktiivne ja seda saab kasutada. Aga ära kõhkle kaua - mõni preemia (eriti see, mis annab 125% lisaaega) võib olla aktiivne ainult mõne minuti. Preemiat saab kasutada ainult siis, kui ostetud liikmelisus on Ajuvanker 1 aastaks või kauemaks ja see pole Ajudega tasumine.

Tegevus on aktiivne kuni aasta lõpuni, seega on piisavalt aega selle võimaluse kasutamiseks ka jõulukingitustena.

Peale selle tahaksin meenutada võimalust saada Must Vanker - eluaegne liikmelisus, kui õnnestub Preemiavallutaja (Bonus conqueror) saavutus. Ära kõhkle oma võimaluse kasutamisel.

Androidi kasutajatele: Sul on võimalus saada tasuta Ajusid, kui aitad testida meie Androidi rakendusi. Ka seda, mida olen BrainKing´i saidile arendanud. Üksikasjade selgituseks palun seda lehte külastada.

Fencer  Brains for Strategy Points 16. juuni 2012, 11:10:09
I have recently added a small improvement to our current Brains promotion which is valid to the middle of July 2012 for testing purposes. It was mostly inspired by an increased interest in Brains tournaments and can be taken as another way to obtain Brains that cannot be purchased directly.
The participation is absolutely free, so if you want to get a couple of Brains with a minimum effort, just try it out.

Fencer  Easter Action 30. märts 2012, 08:11:38
Easter Egg! Since the number of requests to create the Easter Action this year is quite high again, it is here and this is it. Everybody has a chance to get up to 125% bonus to a Brain Rook membership level order, based on the popular system of color codes. Let me remind the rules of this action:

When you see a small flashing light bulb on the Main Page or next to Paid Membership link at the left column, you know a bonus is active and can be used. But don't hesitate for a long time - some bonuses (especially the one which adds 125% to the subscribed period) can be active only for several minutes. The bonuses can be used only if a purchased membership is for Brain Rook level and 1 year or longer period and it is not a Brains payment.

This action will be active until cancelled. The day when the action ends is not specified but, regarding the Easter nature of the promotion, it should happen in April 2012. Furthermore, I would like to remind an opportunity to obtain a Black Rook lifetime membership for a fraction of its list price, if you succeed to get the Bonus conqueror achievement. Do not hesitate to take your chance.

Since the number of requests to create one more membership action is quite high, I have finally decided to do so. In fact I was trying to make it a little different this time but I was not able to think out anything new and original. So, like in the past, everybody has a chance to get up to 100% bonus to a Brain Rook membership level order, based on the popular system of colour codes. Let me remind the rules:
  • When you see a small flashing light bulb on the Main Page or next to Paid Membership link at the left column, you know a bonus is active and can be used. But don't hesitate for a long time - some bonuses (especially the one which adds 100% to the subscribed period) can be active only for several minutes.
  • The bonuses can be used only if a purchased membership is for Brain Rook level and 1 year or longer period and it is not a Brains payment.
  • The payment must be received in 5 days (120 hours) after placing the order. That should be enough time for all types of payment ways.
Well, there is actually one new feature. Instead of a fixed day of action end, BrainKing will offer colour codes until 100 bonuses of the same type or 500 bonuses of all types are awarded. The counter will start when the action is launched.

Fencer  BrainKing migration completed 14. mai 2011, 09:20:54
BrainKing has been successfully moved to a new server and everything seems to be up and running. It is still possible that minor defects could occur until we test and optimize various parts of the site, but I don't expect any significant problems. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Fencer  A scheduled downtime 12. mai 2011, 15:58:21
A scheduled downtime of BrainKing is planned on Saturday 14th May 2011, 07:00 GMT+01:00 due to site migration to a new server. If the downtime duration exceeds 60 minutes (which is not likely but also not impossible), BrainKing would automatically suspend the game time for 24 hours. Thank you for understanding.

It is possible that small problems will occur after the migration is done because the new system has a little different internal structure and not everything could have been tested until under a full load. Please be patient and give us time to pinpoint and finetune all possible sources of bugs. Thank you.

Fencer  Upcoming BrainKing migration 11. mai 2011, 17:49:45
I would like to announce that BrainKing will be moved to a new server soon and it is possible that the site would become unavailable for some time, mostly due to a safe migration of all databases and other important files.

A new server is already installed and it is temporarily running on http://bknew.wk.cz address. Please note that it is linked to a database snapshot which is more than a week old, so it does not contain the most recent game data and it is mostly used for testing purposes at the moment. When the migration is complete, BrainKing.com domain location will be redirected there as well.

I will try to inform about any updates on BrainKing.info site or here.

I would like to announce that we are currently implementing certain changes to BrainKing code, in order to improve the overall performance of the site and avoid complicated situations in the future. This process should not affect anyone and all important features are supposed to work as usual.

The reason I am posting this is that you might notice minor changes to some BrainKing pages and it is possible that certain functions (that are rarely used) won't work exactly as they are supposed to. Please do not report it to the Bug Tracker. When everything is done, the complete list of changes will be posted either here or to our blog.

Fencer  New vacation system announcement 10. detsember 2010, 16:50:35
Fencer toimetatud (11. detsember 2010, 09:33:24)
Tahaksin teatada uuest vaheaegade ja puhkepäevade süsteemist partiides. Käesoleva muudatuse eesmärgiks on see, et praegune süsteem tundub olevat liiga keeruline. Paljud kasutajad on segaduses, mis viib ootamatu ajaületuseni.

See uus funktsioon on juba valmis ja programmeeritud BrainKing´is aktiveerida automaatselt 1. jaanuaril 2011, 00:00:01 GMT +01:00 (Eestis kell 01:00:01). Sel aastal kasutatame veel vana süsteemi.
  • Vaheajapäevad on muutunud vaheajatundideks. Põhjus on selles, et BrainKing`i kasutajad elavad erinevates ajavööndites ja alati pole selge, millal päev serveri aja järgi algab. Vaheajatunde on aastas kokku vastavalt praegustele päevade arvule - näiteks Ajuvanker liige saab 840 tundi (35 x 24).
  • Kõik vaheajad on automaatsed, mis tähendab ka seda, et kalender eemaldatakse Seaded lehelt (see peaks blokeerima kõik katsed petta plaaniliste vaheajapäevade perioodilise sisse- ja väljalülitamisega, mida nägime minevikus). Igasuguse liikmelisuse tasemega kasutajad saavad automaatseid vaheaegu igal ajal aktiveerida / deaktiveerida.
  • See toimib nii: Kõiki partiisid kontrollitakse ajaületuse suhtes 10 minuti tagant. Kui ajaületus partiis on avastatud (ja partiis saab kasutada vaheaega), siis lisatakse 1 tund kõikidele selle mängija partiidele (kui ta on käigul) ja see arvatakse maha tema vaheajatundide varust. See süsteem tagab, et sa ei kuluta vaheaega rohkem kui vaja - näiteks, kui sa mängid partiid 7 tundi pärast ajaületuse hetke, siis kasutad ainult 7 tundi oma vaheajatundidest, mitte terve päev (24 tundi) nagu varem.
  • Puhkepäevad nädalas ei muutu. Vaikimisi on nendeks laupäev ja pühapäev. Te saate neid muuta üks kord 30 päeva jooksul. Päeva algus on määratud serveri ajaga - GMT +01:00 (Eestis kell üks öösel).
  • Liikmelisuse uuendamisel toimub vaheaja juurdeost sellele vastavalt - 10 ja 5 päeva asemel esimese ja teise aasta puhul saate 240 ja 120 tundi.

Et uus süsteem töötaks korralikult, selleks aktiveeritakse automaatpuhkus kõikidele kasutajatele alates 1. jaanuarist 2011. Igaüks saab selle vajadusel välja lülitada.

Fencer  Black Rook action 1. september 2010, 08:13:48
If you ever thought of getting a lifetime membership but never had enough money to pay for it, this could be your chance to purchase Black Rook with a great discount. The rules are very easy:
  • The discount is individual for every user and makes 10% for every year of normal Rook membership purchased in the past, up to 60%. BrainKing uses the shopping cart system history of orders to calculate your discount, which means that only orders placed since September 2005 are counted. Find your discount on the Paid membership page!
  • Other registered payments can, when added up, qualify for an additional discount if the total amount is equivalent to the current Brain Rook year subscription price. For instance, if you already paid for a year Brain Knight level (24 Euro) and a 6 months Brain Knight membership (14 Euro), it makes 38 Euro in total - greater or equal to 36 Euro - so BrainKing will increase your discount by another 10%.
  • The payment must be received in 72 hours after the order is placed.
  • The action will be active for a week (7 days), starting from 1st September 2010, 9:00 a.m. GMT+2. The Paid membership page will inform you about it.
Don't hesitate to reuse money you already spent here and never be bothered with "please renew your membership" message again!

By the way, do you want to receive 10 years of Brain Rook instead of the lifetime one (the price is the same) and use them for your friends or prize tournaments? Just send me a message.

Fencer  Black Rook action - test week 12. august 2010, 07:54:05
Fencer toimetatud (12. august 2010, 08:00:33)
The opinion poll is over and although the "normal" Black Rook action is planned for September, we have decided to make a little test run now, in order to check proper functionality of the automated payment process.

If you ever thought of getting a lifetime membership but never had enough money to pay for it, this could be your chance to purchase Black Rook with a great discount. The rules are very easy:
  • The discount is individual for every user and makes 10% for every year of normal Rook membership purchased in the past, up to 60%. BrainKing uses the shopping cart system history of orders to calculate your discount, which means that only orders placed since September 2005 are counted. Find your discount on the Paid membership page!
  • The payment must be received in 72 hours after the order is placed.
  • The action will be active for a week (7 days), starting from 12th August 2010, 8:00 a.m. GMT+2. The Paid membership page will inform you about it.
Furthermore, if you don't wait for September and take advantage of this test week, you will get even more discount - another 10% (the total discount still cannot exceed 60%). For instance, if you paid for 3 years of Brain Rook in the past, your total discount would be 40%, so the Black Rook would cost you only 216 Euro (instead of 360).

Don't hesitate to reuse money you already spent here and never be bothered with "please renew your membership" message again!

Please remember this is a test run and it is not guaranteed to be bug free. If you think BrainKing calculates your own discount wrong, please contact me.

By the way, do you want to receive 10 years of Brain Rook instead of the lifetime one (the price is the same) and use them for your friends or prize tournaments? Just send me a message.

Lihavõttemuna! Nagu olen juba maininud BrainKing`i blogis, on ka sel aastal paljud soovinud uut lihavõttetegevust, siin see on. Igaühel on võimalus saada Ajuvankri liikmelisuse tellimisel kuni 125% preemiat - see põhineb populaarsel värvikoodide süsteemil. Tuletame meelde selle tegevuse reegleid:

Preemiat saab kasutada ainult siis, kui ostetud liikmelisus on Ajuvanker 1 aastaks või kauemaks ja see pole Ajudega tasumine.
Tegevus on aktiivne kuni tühistamiseni. Lõpupäeva pole täpsustatud, kuid seoses ülestõusmispühadega peaks see toimuma aprillis 2010.
Lisaks märkad meie ostukorvisüsteemi kena täiustust - pole enam vaja täpsustada makseviisi enne tellimust. Kõik võimalikud makseviisid kuvatakse tellimuse juures. Kui valid ühe neist ja see mingil põhjusel ei toimi, saad valida mõne muu makseviisi uut tellimust loomata.
Peale selle tahaksin meenutada võimalust saada Must Vanker - eluaegne liikmelisus, kui õnnestub Preemiavallutaja (Bonus conqueror) saavutus. Ära kõhkle oma võimaluse kasutamisel.

Fencer  AlertPay promotion 2. juuni 2009, 18:45:40
Fencer toimetatud (5. juuni 2009, 11:49:55)
Varemteatatud probleemide tõttu on PayPal kui BrainKing´i liikmelisuse tasumisviis meie saidist eemaldatud ja me ei kavatse seda tagasi tuua, kuni PayPal pole oluliselt muutunud.

Vastavalt sellele tahaksime soodustada AlertPay kui väga hea PayPali alternatiivi proovimist meie kasutajate poolt. Kuna meil on vaja testida, kuidas BrainKing'i automaatsüsteem töötleb AlertPay tehinguid, on algatatud järgmine tegevus:

Iga BrainKing´i kasutaja, kes ostab 1 aasta (või kauema) AjuVankri liikmelisuse ja kasutab selle tasumiseks AlertPayd, saab 125% preemiat tellitavale ajale. Selline edendamine on aktiivne kuni pühapäevani 7. juunini 2009, 23:59:59 GMT+01:00 ja tellimus peab olema tasutud 15. juunil 2009.

Kena kõrvalnähtusena liigitub see tegevus Lihavõttemuna preemiakoodi alla, seega on see hea võimalus neile, kes vajavad seda preemiat Preemiavallutaja (Bonus conqueror) saavutuseks tasuta Musta Vankri liikmelisuse saamiseks. Ära kõhkle, sel aastal rohkem lihavõttepreemiat ei tule.

Fencer toimetatud (15. mai 2009, 09:27:48)
Due to PayPal's ridiculous policy "you are guilty until proven innocent", I have decided not to fight with these ignorants and their automated email responses any longer. As of 1st June 2009, BrainKing will stop accepting PayPal payments, so if you want to make a membership order with your PayPal account, you still have more than 2 weeks to do it. It is a good time anyway, according to the bonus code action.

Shortly said, nothing important should be changed - there are still other payment options, like AlertPay, MoneyBookers or a wire transfer, and all of them work fine, so everybody can continue to order higher membership levels, Brains or tournament prizes, just like before.

I will write more details about this issue tomorrow (BrainKing.info blog).

Fencer toimetatud (1. mai 2009, 15:10:36)
As I have already suggested at discussion boards, a small bug has been found in the generator of achievement points. Since this bug caused that every user received much more points than he/she actually should have, the points will be calculated again to reflect the real status. I apologize for this inconvenience. The recalculation will be done later today.

Although the recent Easter Egg action was active long enough, there are still many BrainKing users who were not able to catch the deadline, so we have decided to start a similar action and associate it with new achievements of the membership category. The action, which gives everyone a chance to get up to 100% bonus to an ordered subscription, will be activated later today and should be active until it is cancelled. Please read this short description if you are not familiar with the rules. There are two important modifications - the bonus can be used only if a Brain Rook or higher level is purchased and the order must be paid to the end of May 2009.

That's all. Enjoy.

Kõigepealt pean kuulutama BrainKing´i mängusaidi plaanilisest ajaseisakust. sel nädalal, mis ei tohiks olla pikem kui 30 minutit. Põhjuseks on see, et meie andmebaasi varukoopiasüsteem vajab taastamist hiljutiste väikeste probleemide tõttu (mis on juba fikseeritud).

Teine info on olulisem. Lihavõttemuna aktsioon on käivitunud ja on aktiivne kuni esmaspäevani 13. aprillini 2009, 23:59:59 GMT+01:00 (Eestis 14.04 kell 0:59:59). Täiendavaks infoks klõpsa lihavõttemuna kujutisel Tasulise liikmelisuse lingi all vasakus servas. Pärast eelmist preemiategevust on ilmunud palju uusi BrainKing´i kasutajaid. Neile on hea võimalus saada 125% preemiat tasulise liikmelisuse ostmisel. Loomulikult võib sellest tegevusest igaüks kasu saada.

Preemiat saab kasutada ka Musta AjuVankri liikmelisuse tellimisel. 125% preemia asemel võid valida teise BrainKing´i kasutaja, kes saab sellesama eluaegse liikmelisuse tasuta.

Fencer toimetatud (5. märts 2009, 18:47:20)
I would like to thank everyone who helped us with testing our implementation of online poker game (Texas Hold'em). It makes an important milestone in BrainKing's history because it is our first game which belongs to 2 new categories - card games and multiplayer games.

Since all reported bugs are already fixed and no further serious problems were reported, the Online Poker will be officially released on Monday 9th March 2009, 9:00 a.m. GMT+01:00. As of this date and time, the following actions will be performed:
  • Chips of all players will be reset to the initial value of 1000. The reason is that the system gave some players more chips than they actually had won (due to a bug which is already fixed now), so a fresh start would be only fair to all users.
  • The Get more chips rule has been improved and the description can be found at the FAQ section.
  • All tables will be recreated with new parameters, based on the feedback of players. All limit types (limit, pot limit and no limit) are supported, as well as different table sizes (2-10 players).

Along with the release preparation, new features and game variants (poker tournaments, Omaha Hold'em, 7 Card Stud etc.) are being developed. Most of them will be probably completed after the mentioned release date, but the work will be definitely finished as soon as possible.

Me pole mitu kuud spetsiaalset aktsiooni välja lasknud, sestap on aeg midagi teha. Kasutame jälle populaarset värvikoodide süsteemi, aga meil ei pruugi vana ideed kopeerida. Niisiis on siin mõned muudatused - palun loe:
Seekord anname kenakese koguse tasuta Ajusid igale sellest aktsioonist osavõtjale. Kui sa näed pealehel väikest vilkuvat lambikest, siis on boonus aktiivne ja kasutatav. Aga ära viivita kaua - mõni boonus (eriti just see, mis lisab 1000 tasuta Aju) on aktiivne ainult mõne minuti.
Boonuseid saab kasutada ainult siis, kui on ostetud liikmelisus 1 aastaks või pikemaks ajaks ja see on makstud tõelises rahas.
Tasuta Ajudel on võrreldes tasuta kuudega vähemalt 2 eelist:
  • Sa saad pisut rohkem kui enne. Näiteks on punane Värvikood 1000 Aju (kui ostad AjuVankri), aga 1 aasta AjuVankri ostmiseks on vaja ainult 960 Aju - ülejäänut (40 Aju) saad kasutada hiljem. Kui sa pole varem Ajudest midagi kuulnud, palun loe seda lehte.
  • Ajusid ei pea tingimata ise kasutama - tasuta Ajud saab ka teise kasutaja liikmelisuse jaoks käiku lasta
See aktsioon on aktiivne aprilli lõpuni 2008.

Christmas Special! It is almost December and, like every year, we are launching our Christmas action. This time it is not just about an extra month to the subscribed membership, everybody has a chance to get up to 100% bonus, based on the popular system of color codes. Let me remind the rules of this action:

When you see a small flashing light bulb on the Main Page, you know a bonus is active and can be used. But don't hesitate for a long time - some bonuses (especially the one which adds 100% to the subscribed period) can be active only for several minutes. The bonuses can be used only if a purchased membership is for 1 year or longer period and it is not a Brains payment.

This action will be active to the end of this year. Furthermore, we have added a nice improvement - you don't have to send a payment in 72 hours to validate the bonus (like before), it must be received to the end of this year - 31st December 2007, 23:59:59 GMT+01:00. The reason is that we would like to make this opportunity available to all users, including those who use a wire transfer or other slower methods to pay.

Fencer toimetatud (3. aprill 2007, 20:48:29)
The February Action for the first ten subscribers was a nice success but its disadvantage is obvious - the users from different time zones didn't have the same chance to take advantage of it. That's why the current action introduces the system of color codes which are activated randomly and nobody can foretell the time and type of the next bonus activation.

Please read the Bonus List page for more information. When you see a small flashing light bulb on the Main Page, you know a bonus is active and can be used. But don't hesitate for a long time - some bonuses (especially the one which adds 100% to the subscribed period) can be active only for several minutes.

The bonuses can be used only if a purchased membership is for 1 year or longer period and it is not a Brains payment.

Fencer toimetatud (3. aprill 2007, 11:27:19)
For this month, we are experimenting with Action Points again and the winners of this contest will be awarded by a free membership as usual. In order to make the system a little different, there is one new rule: the first two points of the list of options (move points and win points) are valid only for one game type. The game is selected randomly by the server and is automatically changed every 12 hours. Please read all rules here.
  • 1. place: 1 year Brain Rook membership
  • 2. place: 6 months Brain Rook membership
  • 3. place: 3 months Brain Rook membership
  • ?. place (randomly selected from the 4. - 50. positions): 9 months Brain Rook membership

If you want to participate, please make sure (on your Settings page) that you are eligible to receive the Action Points.

Well, we are going to give something for free in February because we think it is a good idea:

The first ten users who purchase at least two years of any kind of a paid membership (or renews the current one by at least two years) will receive one year of the same level for free.

The second ten users who purchase at least two years of any kind of a paid membership (or renews the current one by at least two years) will receive six months of the same level for free.

And everybody (including those who take advantage of the mentioned offers) who purchases at least a year of any kind of a paid membership (or renews the current one by at least another year) will receive a full retail version of ArchMage, a new game by 300AD.com. The game would be available in both PC and Mac versions.

Just a year ago we started the system of regular monthly actions which motivate people to upgrade to a higher membership level because they always get something more as a free bonus. This year is not an exception and I would like to begin with a new product promotion of one of my friends.

Everybody who purchases at least a year of any kind of a paid membership (or renews the current one by at least another year) will receive a full retail version of Phantasia 2, a new game by 300AD.com, which is worth 20 USD. The game is available in both PC and Mac versions.

And Happy New Year.

Christmas Special! Like every year, we launch our Christmas action:

1) Everybody who pays for any kind of membership (or extends their current membership) before the end of this year (2006), will automatically get one FREE month of the same membership as a Christmas present.

2) The last chance to purchase a Black Rook (which never expires) and get the second one for free! It means that you pay for your own Black Rook membership and then you can choose another player who gets the same membership as well. IMPORTANT! This is the last offer of this kind. After 31st December 2006, there will be no more special actions concerning Black Rooks.

Võib-olla olete märganud, et lippude ala, mis peegeldab kõiki BrainKing'i toetuskeeli, on muutnud oma kuju: kolmes reas 15 kujutise asemel on kena ruut 4x4 lipust, millega tõlgete koguarv on suurenenud kuueteistkümneni.

Fencer toimetatud (5. november 2006, 08:07:35)
BrainKing's November Action has been launched and it is not about Action Points:

1) In order to make the set of chess pieces completed, Brain Bishop is the new level of membership and it has been just released. Its capabilities are equivalent to Brain Knight but it can be purchased as a monthly subscription for 2 EUR. It is a good option who want to try a paid membership for a minimal price.

2) Since we like to introduce new features with something special, the new membership level is not an exception. Everybody who purchases the Brain Bishop membership during November 2006, will get 1 extra month for free as a bonus.

3) Other paying members can take advantage of the action as well. Everybody with Brain Knight or higher level, who purchases a Brain Bishop membership for someone else (during this month), will receive 1 extra month to his own membership level for free. It means that, for example, if you are a Brain Rook, you can get another year of this membership for only 24 Euro (instead of 30) by purchasing a Brain Bishop level for twelve users. If you are not sure how to buy a membership for someone else, please read the detailed instructions on BrainKing.info blog.

The last quarter of this year has just started and BrainKing announces its October Action:

1) Action Points - this popular (and cursed) contest continues, but the prizes are a little modified:
  • ?. place: 2 years Brain Rook membership
  • The rest of 1. - 10. places: secret prize
What does it mean? This time the first prize will be given to one of the first 10 positions. It is already set which one but it will be revealed when the contest is finished. And the other prizes for the first 10 positions are not known. They might be better, they might be worse.

2) Write interesting articles and get a free membership! - after the last month's great success of this new opportunity to share interesting thoughts and experiences, we have decided to extend the option of Brains awards for original articles. If you are not familiar with it yet, please read all information and rules here.

3) A special prize - is waiting for the clicking maniac who breaks the limit of 10,000 moves a day.

Fencer  September Action 1. september 2006, 09:36:52
Fencer toimetatud (2. september 2006, 11:24:21)
The summer holidays are over (for us who live in the Northern Hemisphere) and BrainKing announces a new monthly action for our users:

1) Action Points improvements - the secret points algorhithm has been modified, in order to become more convenient to all users from all countries. Starting today, you can find them on many more pages than before, even on the blog site BrainKing.info, and their location can be slightly changed every day. Moreover, the earned points won't show up in your stats immediately - the process is delayed due to a new method of their calculation. Please read the Action Points page for details.
  • 1. place: 2 years Brain Rook membership
  • 2. - 3. place: 1 year Brain Rook membership
  • 4. - 5. place: 6 months Brain Rook membership
  • 6. - 10. place: 150 Brains
  • 50 Brains for all users from the top 50 places
One important point - who won a membership at the August action points contest, cannot win it again in September.

2) Write interesting articles and get a free membership! - September is the Month of Articles which I want to collect from you and publish on a brand new site, to be launched later this month. Please read all information and rules here. They are only in English at the moment, but I want to add all possible translations as soon as possible.

3) Free Game Bonus continues! - Everybody who purchases any kind of a paid membership (or renews the current one), will receive one free game from this list: Crystal Cave Gold, Trick Ball, Fireman's Adventures, Rock'n'Roll 2004, Electric Eddie, ArcaMania, ArcaMania 2, Troll.

4) Free Game Bonus Bonus - when this month is over, we will ballot one user who used the previous 3) point and he will receive one more free game: Jets'n'Guns or Undercroft.
The game bonus is the result of our cooperation with 300AD.com and Rake in Grass.

August Action! This is the biggest monthly action so far and it contains four points:

1) More Action Points - we have increased the number of points for new users/members links and added secret points. There is also a new rule - the points can be given only to users who didn't disable the banner ads appearance (in order to test improved features). Read the Action Points page for details.
  • 1. place: 2 years Brain Rook membership
  • 2. - 3. place: 1 year Brain Rook membership
  • 4. - 5. place: 6 months Brain Rook membership
  • 6. - 10. place: 150 Brains
  • 100 Brains for 10 randomly selected users from the top 50 places
One important point - who won a membership at the July action points contest, cannot win it again in August.

2) Black Rook Special - due to a good success of the May Action, it is here again with a small improvement. Everybody who purchases the Black Rook membership (which never expires), can either choose another user who will receive the same membership for free, or ask us for a new BrainKing feature (except auto-pass ) which would be implemented with the highest priority. Of course, such a feature request must be reasonable and possible to do.

3) Free Game Bonus - everybody who purchases any kind of a paid membership (or renews the current one), will receive one free game from this list: Crystal Cave Gold, Trick Ball, Fireman's Adventures, Rock'n'Roll 2004, Electric Eddie, ArcaMania, ArcaMania 2, Troll.

4) Free Game Bonus Bonus - when this month is over, we will ballot one user who used the previous 2) or 3) point and he will receive one more free game: Styrateg, Jets'n'Guns or Undercroft.
The game bonus is the result of our cooperation with 300AD.com and Rake in Grass.

Fencer  July Action 1. juuli 2006, 00:01:09
Fencer toimetatud (4. juuli 2006, 07:53:46)
1) Good news! Thanks to Eriisa we could reactivate the PayPal option, so there are no more problems to use PayPal for any payments on BrainKing.

2) July Action! Let us try something different this month. In order to test what our site is capable of (and to give our users another chance to compete), July is the Month of Action Points. If this test period produces good results, the system of points can continue in the following months as well. And let us start with some attractive prizes:
  • 1. place: 3 years Brain Rook membership
  • 2. - 3. place: 2 years Brain Rook membership
  • 4. - 5. place: 1 year Brain Rook membership
  • 6. - 10. place: 200 Brains
Please read the rules and other information here. As you can see, the system works separately for paying members and pawns, which means there will be 20 prizes to award. It is also possible to give the prize to another user if you win and do not want to use it.
And, of course, suggestions to improve this system are welcome.

Fencer  PayPal 14. juuni 2006, 19:38:14

IMPORTANT NEWS: Due to continuous problems with PayPal, this payment method will be cancelled on BrainKing as of 20th June 2006 (it will be the last day to accept PayPal payments here). If you plan to use PayPal to pay for a membership, please do it as soon as possible. All other ways of payment (wire transfer, MoneyBookers, American Express, money order) remain unchanged and a brand new one might appear soon.

June Action Reminder! This month is dedicated to a 2+1 action. Everybody who purchases a new two years membership or extends the current one by two years, can choose another user who will be given one year of the same membership level for free.

Thanks to Groucho's idea, who has already taken advantage of it, the May Action is about the Black Rook membership (which never expires). Everyone, who purchases this membership (on the Paid Membership page, option "forever"), can choose another user who will receive the same membership for free.
And I almost forgot to announce a new game Lines of Action, which was added a week ago.

BrainKing brings, after a long wait (yes, my wife wanted me to add it since December 2002, so it is for her now), one of the oldest and most popular games in the world - Go - and its two smaller variants, Go 9x9 and Go 13x13. Please read the BrainKing rules of this game, even if you know how to play it.
And, as a small bonus, the game of Connect6 as an addition to the pieces-in-line family.

Fencer  Colours of game pieces 13. aprill 2006, 09:39:03
Fencer toimetatud (14. juuni 2006, 15:08:18)
Since the current BrainKing system of colours of game pieces (white player always starts a game) is not suitable for all game types and more games will be added soon, I have decided to fix this problem globally for all game types.
When the fix is applied, some games would be started by a black player (checkers, pente, shogi, go, etc.) or red player (xiangqi) and this feature would be highlighted in game invitations. It will also affect all other games (running or finished), so don't be alarmed if the colour of your pieces changes from white to black etc. It is just a visual fix, nothing else will be modified.
This improvement will be active in a day or two, along with the release of the game of Go.
