The_Burglar: i know Borja, owner of iothello, they have problems with the server, i hope they rescue the project.

Subject: Re: Random Reversi
The_Burglar: Sounds quite interesting. I would definitely like to try it. Studying openings is something i've never been too keen on doing and this version should remove atleast some of the need for that..

Random Reversi (not running now) had a random game version which was played alot


would players here use it if was added to this site

Subject: Re: Cheaters
Orlandu: you know if the cheaters check the box? i think is a momentary solution... Another solution is demand a friend to follow the game and confirm the cheating/use the program... similar to a external judge.

26. June 2010, 06:55:52
Subject: Cheaters
If people want to use a program then we need a box check to let people know when choosing the game that a computer program is being used... On another site the top player is uisng the Wzwbra program...

Subject: Re: Cheater
1926: i see, and i confirm your ideas, but is to difficult to say... only we can inform to Fencer? i don't know... other players have play helped's with computer app i remember the suspect "TTTTT" or others... is a problem for our BKR not for they... the cheaters don't play a lot of games... invite player a fast game...

Subject: Re: Cheater
sarok: All 32 moves from WZebra (look ahead 24 moves) from top to finish leave very little room to doubt. As you know, no human can even go close to match that. If you send me a private message I'll give you name and game so you can judge for yourself.

26. February 2010, 23:34:50
Subject: Re: Cheater
1926: I don't really know what the real procedure should be. Maybe you should report it to Fencer. Anyway its not easy to foolproofly prove someone is using a program to win..

26. February 2010, 22:53:46
Subject: Re: Cheater
1926: yes, is possible, but is difficult to catch the cheater...

Hello. I just caught someone playing every move from beginning to end straight from WZebra. Do I report this to someone? Thank you

Subject: SpheReVersi
How about that name for a game? ;) Well, the rules are quite simple but it's just an untested raw idea.

Combine sphere rules (torus rules i know just like sphere froglet) with reversi, this eliminates the hiriarchy of the squares on the board, making ach square even vulnerable.

Is anyone going to the dutch championship in Alkmaar tomorrow ?
(It's my hometown, but my gf is celebrating her birthday so i cant go have a look :( (or particpate ;)))

Subject: Re: starting positions
John Baker: I've always wondered also - being just a casual Reversi player (far from being an expert or anything).

Personally, if I can - I try NOT to start with a diagonal start position if possible - just since in the back of my mind, I know most "experts" probable play that game that way - and doing that might "mess" them up some. Of course it does not work and I still lose - but O'well - worth the try.

John Baker 
Subject: starting positions
Q: is it best to have two at diagonal or two together or does it not matter at the start?

My Answer: Ya know, I don't think the statistical advantages have been researched. I know that white has an ever-so-slight advantage over black when starting with the traditional diagonal position. The difference is about 0.12%. The non-traditional starting position, such as the one we're using in this game, is not allowed in most tournament play. In official reversi (othello) tournaments, the diagonal start position is already set and the first move is made from there. As far as I know, the option to change the starting position is found only on Goldtoken. Back to your question: As far as I can tell, there is no distinct statistical advantage for either player in starting one way over the other. I think this would be a great quesion for the reversi db, don't you think? I'll post it.

Thoughts anyone?

John Baker: This site doesnt have translaton capabilities and I dont think it's very polite to put someone down for their lack of English. Can you speak fluently in other languages other than English?

Magnum: Your site is very impressive!

Looking for an opponent to play 8x8 with... I used to be quite good (rednaz23 @ IYT - I went 143-16) but am looking for opponents to start again... Please help! I am signed up on a team for that team tourney, and need a couple games to get non-rusty, which I probably am... Thanks in advance!

I have a tournament open for 10x10 if any players are interested. I could use a couple of more players. Go to the tournaments to sign up.

i just got back from my holiday so i havent had time yet to look at the teams for the current team tournaments .. are there any (strong) teams which could use 1 more player ? :)

Hrqls: After you select 'Wipeouts' in the first boc, you must click on one of the particular games in the second box. 'Openings', 'Tricks & Traps', 'Wipeouts' etc. are only categories, and each category has many games.

Subject: Re:
shmoula: lol :) *comfort* :)
i couldnt find out how to get to the wipeout on that site .. i selected it in the list, but how do i see the game ?
(the play button underneath the board didnt do much :))

i didnt try long though as i am at work ;)

20. July 2006, 17:26:48
Subject: Re:
Hrqls: Well, this has already been solved, there are many variations of wipeouts in move #9 and it is not possible to do it earlier.
Look at this: Click on the 'Wipeouts' item in the top left. I actually lost to '9 move wipeout perpendicular #1' once (that doesn't count, I was a beginner), but, and I am still ashamed of it, I also once lost to '19 move wipeout #1'. And that was after several thousad games :o(

20. July 2006, 09:55:04
Subject: Re:
shmoula: nice!

another nice one would be a game with as few as possible pieces on the board, but all in 1 color already and the game being finished :)
