I put up 6 invitations to play Backgammon, with the message "Please do not accept more than 2 games" (I like to play a variety of opponents, who might have different active time-of-day). One player then accepted all 6 games, despite my message. Is there some way to cancel some of these games? The player in question does not reply to any messages, not even to apologise for accepting all 6 games, even when I have translated the messages to his own language. (Needless to say he/she has now been added to my "blocked user" list, so it won't happen again, but I'd love to be able to just delete the unwanted games.)
I am playing in a tournament where one section is finished, and the other section, where there is already a winner, has two games which looks like they could take another year or more to finish at the current rate. Now I might not live that long, which will drag out the tournament another three years as everybody waits for ME to move. Is there SOME way to get a tournament moving when the players who are holding it up have ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE OF MOVING TO THE NEXT ROUND! This is sooooooo frustrating and totally unnecessary!
There are two general types of scoring system of Go.
Area scoring (including Chinese): A player's score is the number of stones that the player has on the board, plus the number of empty intersections surrounded by that player's stones. Territory scoring (including Japanese and Korean): In the course of the game, each player retains the stones they capture, termed prisoners. Any dead stones removed at the end of the game become prisoners. The score is the number of empty points enclosed by a player's stones, plus the number of prisoners captured by that player.
I want to use Area scoring in brainking.com. Because area scoring is understandable for beginners.
If there is disagreement about which stones are dead, then under area scoring rules, the players simply resume play to resolve the matter. The score is computed using the position after the next time the players pass consecutively. Under territory scoring, the rules are considerably more complex.
This version uses No dice per say, but it does use all 21 possible dice rolls though. But its strategic in that you can choose any available dice roll. Once you use it...its gone. Once you roll a 6-6 you cannot roll it again. Until every other roll has been used.
There is a handicap feature for shogi games, but it appears that it can't be used for tournaments. I'd like to try a tournament in which the players each play one game giving and one game taking a handicap against each opponent. How difficult would it be to set that up?
Hi The feature where a player can offer a draw without making a move is something that may be applicable in games I am unaware of, however I have only experienced it being used by a particularly bad loser in a game of Amazons which I make reference to in my profile. I don't think it applicable to mention a name.
If the player was only allowed to offer this feature when making a move then the opponent will clearly see it on their next move and can agree or not.
But when done without the person moving, the opponent has no reason to go to the game and must rely on finding it in their private messages. While the player in question in my situation has done it since on every move and sought out other games with me from the waiting list and does it every move is a blight on the feature. I have no issue with him waiting to the last moment to move but findit an abuse of this feature. I should add that for new players to the site this feature is not easily discovered as a pawn.
In essence my request is this feature only be applicable when making a move and not without moving.
(copy-paste from my Outbox) Hello Fencer. Many of my games (8002929, 946993, 8003349, 8003405, 8008220 and 8006693) with standard vacation were lost due to timeout. I have 10 more vacation days left. How come?
