Hello again,
I would like to inform you that we are still working on fixing the mysterious performance bug. Since we are to run several important tests soon, please do not be alarmed if some of BrainKing.com features are temporarily disabled.
One more important thing - the membership of all paying members will be extended by the corresponding number of problematic days.

Fencer  Unreachable site 29. January 2003, 10:21:49

Hello,
we apologize for the temporary shutdown of BrainKing.com. It was caused by a electricity defect of our server-housing provider. Everything is working now.

Fencer  Four Checkers games and smaller Five in Line board 26. January 2003, 17:44:12
Modified by Fencer (13. January 2006, 16:39:08)
Hello,
based on many requests the Five in Line board is changed to 15 x 15 fields. It applies to new games only, all started games remain with 20 x 20 board.
And something for Checkers players - BrainKing.com presents four new Checkers games: Czech Checkers, Corner Checkers, One Way Checkers and Parachute Checkers. Play on! :-)

Fencer  Dark Chess and Atomic Chess 23. January 2003, 18:51:52
Modified by Fencer (13. January 2006, 15:42:31)
BrainKing.com launches two more chess variations:
1) Dark Chess
2) Atomic Chess
Feel free to test them, rules have been added and discussion boards as well :-)

Fencer  Backgammon and Horde Chess fixes 20. January 2003, 19:24:23
Modified by Fencer (13. January 2006, 13:54:57)
Hello again,
although I prefer "realistic" view of game boards, I have decided to accept the request of most backgammon players immediately and made one more change to this game board - both players can see the bearing-off area at the right side. I hope that you will find it comfortable.
Second, based on Horde Chess players' request there is one important change in the rules of this game - a situation with black pawns unable to make legal moves ends as a stalemate (draw). It means that black player still has some pawns on the board but all these pawns are blocked by white pieces without a chance to capture any of them.

Fencer  Scheduled outage, tournaments and backgammon 18. January 2003, 18:11:12
Modified by Fencer (12. January 2006, 11:51:58)
Hello,
I would like to announce these important news:
1) Our server-housing provider wants to make a short power outage on Monday 20th January 2003, 7:00 a.m. GMT. This process should not take more than 30 minutes and BrainKing.com will not be accesible during this time.
2) Tournaments created by users with Brain Rook or better membership level have been launched! If it is applicable to you, you should see a new link Define new tournament at Tournaments page. Feel free to ask me any related questions.
3) Backgammon boards have been fixed and more displaying options (bearing-off area at the same side for both players) will be available soon. Rules have been updated.

Fencer  Nackgammon fix 12. January 2003, 14:46:30
Modified by Fencer (12. January 2006, 11:24:47)
Hello,
since there was a little bug in Nackgammon implementation (the starting position was wrong), all started Nackgammon games were deleted and the bug is already fixed. I deeply apologize. Please start your Nackgammon games again, everything should be correct now.

Fencer  Backgammon rules 11. January 2003, 09:01:28
Modified by Fencer (11. January 2006, 14:41:50)
Backgammon (and its variations) rules have been added. A new chess variation Three Checks Chess has been added too and needs to be tested - play it :-)
More about Backgammon - it seems that not all rules are implemented correctly (e.g. who starts a game according to the first dice roll, etc.), so please be patient, I will fix it as soon as possible. However, if you are tolerant to these little bugs, all games are playable.

Fencer  Backgammon! 10. January 2003, 08:00:44
Modified by Fencer (11. January 2006, 14:41:11)
BrainKing.com presents four new games - Backgammon, Nackgammon, Anti Backgammon and Backgammon Race. Since most players wanted to add these games as soon as possible, I decided to release them before the rules are written. The rules will be updated within several days.
