good luck in the games :)

Subject: Re: Am I right?
Hrqls: Hiya! I got a bit mixed up, it was on my opponant,s first row and marked. For some some reason I started thinking that was my first row instead of my opponants lol! I was thinking to hard!
Thanks very much anyway!

Subject: Re: Am I right?
Mousetrap: a piece cant move anymore when the piece is on the opponents first row

do you have a link to the game where it worked differently ?

7. January 2007, 21:49:58
Subject: Am I right?
In Jarmo I just learned that even if your opponant,s man is marked he can still move and capture yet the rules say he has to stay where he is if he is on the first row?
Can someone explain this rule better in plain English to me? Thanks very much!

Subject: Re: Easy or hard?
Mousetrap: It's fairly easy to play, doesn't take long to learn the basic rules. Not that similar to breakthrough, although when all your pieces or the opponents pieces reach the last row the game is over.

3. January 2007, 13:52:14
Subject: Easy or hard?
How hard is it to play this game? And is it anything like Breakthrough?

Jarmo Elim

Little Jarmo tourney for anyone interested.

Subject: Re: Rules?
kleineme: *nod* i read the english text, and even translated it into dutch, but i was still confused :)

were you able to put a new piece in on the next move ?

6. June 2006, 12:39:16
Subject: Re: Rules?
Hrqls: Thanks again! I have to admit, that the english rules are quite understandable if read carefully enough ;) The german text says something like "if an archer has reached the opponents first row...", which can be seen as if the extra move has to made during the same turn.

6. June 2006, 09:52:22
Subject: Re: Rules?
kleineme: uhm .. i just looked at my old games .. it seems that you can make the move to the opponents 1st row, and in the next turn place a piece back on the board

here is where i did it in my game

6. June 2006, 09:45:30
Subject: Re: Rules?
Hrqls: Thanks for your answer! I didn't post it in the bug tracker yet, as this is my first game, so I thought it may be because of the lack of understanding the rules correctly ;) I will do it now.

6. June 2006, 09:28:45
Subject: Re: Rules?
kleineme: its been a while since i played the game, but i think as well you should be able to place a piece back.

maybe somone else knows whats going on ?
did you post it in the bug tracker yet ?

6. June 2006, 00:37:12
Subject: Rules?

If a player has at least one of his/her archers in the opponent's first row and this archer had captured an enemy archer before (it means that the archer is "marked"), he/she can place one of own captured archers back on his/her first row.

if this rule applies, then what I am missing in this game: pyssso vs. kleineme? If I move from b3 to a1, then all I can do is to click on "move" button, no way to choose one of my captured pieces nor to click on one of the circles on my first row. What am i doing wrong?

Subject: Re: Rules of the game
Marfitalu: ah! you are right .. the french translation of the gamerules isnt complete yet it seems

the link should be (and will be in the future) :

but it still displays in english. i guess the mod of the french discussion board is the translator as well so maybe he knows when its finished

26. July 2005, 14:54:21
Subject: Re: Rules of the game
Marfitalu: in the upper right corner of this site you can see a lot of flags .. click on the french flag and the whole site will be displayed in french

maybe this makes it easier for you to read it all :)

26. July 2005, 14:49:22
Subject: Re: Rules of the game
Marfitalu: The key word is all ... The game is finished if one player moves all his/her non-captured archers to the opponent's first row.

In this game you have only moved one piece to your opponent's first line, three to go.

as you can probably see i dont mind offramping .. as long as it doesnt intrude in any discussion about the real subject of this board : Jarmo

can anyone find a site with some more information/history/.. about this game ?

have fun! ;)

Subject: Re:
Pedro Martínez: ah! .. hmm 'decorum' .. i dont know a real english word for it (or it must be 'decorum' .. i wouldnt translate it as 'deftigheid' in this context .. although the dutch author did :)

'decorum' :
  • acting according to tradition ?
  • presenting one self according to what is expected ?
  • old fashioned ?

i am glad i am not a translator .. i would always be lost in such nuances :)

maybe abigailII knows a better translation ?

11. July 2005, 08:38:42
Subject: Re:
AbigailII: true :) but not many foreigners know can read the language and especially know the nuances for specific words when translated to another language :)

maybe i should have said i didnt know you are from a country where they speak dutch/belgium/south african :) .. and am positively surprised that you can read (and speak?) dutch :)

9. July 2005, 22:45:14
Subject: Re:
Hrqls: thats true ... i didnt know you are dutch
One doesn't have to be Dutch to know the language.

Subject: Re:
Hrqls: The provinces think of themselves as holding the moral high ground, usually supported by their religious faith and old-fashioned domestic vitrues. The cornerstone is the belief in deftigheid (decorum) which masks the provincial yearning for respectability. The younger generation, however, even in the provinces, often equates the term with excessive civility, stiffness and even hypocrisy.


9. July 2005, 17:50:31
Subject: Re:
AbigailII: thats true ... i didnt know you are dutch :)

all yoru translations of deftigheid are close (imo ;)) ... fashionables and upper-class come closest in the context i am thinking of :) or maybe as 'snobbish' or 'snobby' (is than an english word ? ;))

9. July 2005, 13:55:14
Subject: Re:
Hrqls: No, "modesty" means "bescheidenheid". I'd translate "deftigheid" as "distinction", "respectability", "dignity", "fashionableness", or "upper-class" depending on context.

9. July 2005, 10:56:38
Pedro Martínez 
Well the book I'm translating speaks of deftigheid as "decorum".:)

9. July 2005, 08:50:24
Subject: Re:
Pedro Martínez: lol ... thanks .. i will try :)

(the english word for 'deftigheid' is probably 'modesty' ? ... but 'deftigheid' isnt exactly correct in this context .. i dont know which dutch word would be though ;))

8. July 2005, 22:37:20
Pedro Martínez 
Hail, new moderator. Hope you will run this board with deftigheid..:)

    I'm also very interested in learning more about this game.

    8. September 2004, 01:20:26 
    A piece on the last row is worth 2 points. Any other piece on the board is worth 1 point.

    Subject: Scoring query
    Modified by Niki (7. September 2004, 22:23:31)
    Please see game 445929
    Am I correct in thinking that your score relates to how many of your men are on the board ? If so, is there a glitch in this game, or am I missing something ? A piece hasn't been looped back on (I don't think) therefore I'm a little confused (again !) LOL ! So can your max score only ever be 5 ?

    how can i get tips for this game? is there any web site for it?

    rookeeper: Yes, as it says in the news that announced this game, it says that Fencer is aware the board is too big and will add a smaller one soon.

    3. September 2004, 21:10:45
    ahh... i see now..

    3. September 2004, 18:16:36
    it looks like access to the central square is different for both colors.

    3. September 2004, 10:21:56
    Subject: size matters!
    Is it possible to get the board to be the same size as say backgammon so we can see it all at once?

    3. September 2004, 01:22:41
    I'm lost. How is it different?

    2. September 2004, 20:54:15
    Is it intentional that this board isn't symmetrical (ie: different for black and white)?
