Subject: Re: draw gives 0 points ?
Hrqls: The game/match is a "2 wins match" - so I think you only gain a point for a win.

... where the "2 point match", I think it gives you both .5 for a draw if I remember correctly.

Groenevelds Alquerque Tournament

just 2 weeks to go,
you can still enter,but i need at least 7 players
to start,for 3 or 4 I find it useless

so come on,what are you waiting for??

14. May 2006, 19:11:39
i understand
but 1 player after so many weeks,
it's a shame,a great shame....

I found it a good idea,a tournament.but i quit with trying there is no animo

1 player,WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU ....

14. May 2006, 17:37:51
I don't play it for the same reason as's a shame really i don't play Jarmo very often, for the same reason and i love that game.

I don´t play alquerque anymore as well. White wins all the time...

8. April 2006, 23:41:10
a week has passed and not a single entry,

I can't believe it....

7. April 2006, 09:54:07
oke,but good that you react...

6. April 2006, 15:55:41
I don't play Alquerque much anymore, because the board is too large, and it frustrates me to scroll up and down constantly to see the whole board. I enjoy the game, though! If Fencer shrinks it, in the future Groeneveld, I will start playing again.

6. April 2006, 09:50:56
come on,guys
were are you guys??

Don't you wanna challenge the other top players??

When the running tournaments are over
I find it nice idea,when a tournament will be hold,where all or allmost all of the ranked players will appear,
the 28 players with a rating an let's say 36 with a provisional rating

do you find this a good idea,
and are you free,just
drop a note,to say you will enter

and top 28 players,do specially....

how more of you will enter,how greater the tournament

5. September 2005, 23:20:35
Oh, I was looking at it wrong too...

have you asked your opponent for a draw already, with an explanation of why it's a draw???

I think I have heard of Fencer "drawing" games for people in a situation like that when one person refuses a definite draw.. but maybe I imagined it.. Worth a try though.. :-)

5. September 2005, 23:20:12
Andre Faria 
Doesn´t he accept the draw offer?

Subject: Alfonso variant
Up until now I've only ever played tablut on here. The addition of alquerque piqued my interest, but unfortunately the forward-only movement rule put me off--I might as well play draughts (or checkers, to those of you who prefer American English).

Now I've got a real alquerque board to play on, so I've got interested in the game again. I will, however, wait patiently until the time when Fencer creates an Alfonso variant, before I join in. I say patiently, as I've already mentioned elsewhere the possibility of more tafl variants to complement tablut :-)

Subject: Re:
rod03801: well, since he did his recent re-shuffle..... I would assume that this board and Jarmo are here to stay for a while - I certainly dont know any different.....

9. July 2005, 02:58:51
Fencer plans on shrinking both the Jarmo and Alquerque boards at some point. At least that's what he said after the games were first added.

    For me, the size of the graphics keeps me from playing it much now.. Takes WAY too long to load on webtv, and I hate scrolling back and forth to see the whole thing, to decide on my move..

    So, I'm wondering what the progress is on making the graphics smaller?

    Come on Fencer, you don't have much to do! LOL...

    4. April 2005, 13:15:22
    Andre Faria 
    Is there any progress in changing alquerque rules?

    This game is beeing less and less played, and sooner, if rules will not be changed, no one will play it...

    12. February 2005, 20:53:18
    He plans on shrinking them eventually. I hope it is soon, because it is such a pain to play the game having to scroll up and down to see the whole board..

    12. February 2005, 08:16:51
    Fencer, would it be possible if the Alquerque game boards were shrunk down to add double Alquerque here?;id=318

    Subject: 2 ideas.
    Modified by x7x7x7x7x7 (8. December 2004, 22:09:23)
    If these have been mentioned, let me know.

    Reza likes the idea of backward captures.

    Sunfire and I talked about playing it on a 6x6 board.

    The game is meaningless as it stands now.

    19. November 2004, 08:18:16
    I think, that even with the present rules there is still the possibility to draw if both players are equal in pieces and none of them want to attack (or to make a senseless attack). If one of the players has an advantage in material after the middle game, he should IMHO win. It means: There would be probably more draws with the Alfonso's rules. There is a lot of draws in chess or checkers - so what? Playes who can't or don't want to see a draw and want to play forever to make their opponent tired are not worth playing with. :-)

    18. November 2004, 21:12:45
    Subject: Re:
    If i can suggest one thing Fencer don't implement those variants... One has the problem of making impossible the task of one coulor the other if one player wants to stuck the game, the game could last forever, and the win will become for tireness not for strategy...
    I know i'm not the majority of the players and I'm just a pawn but please reconsider, now you have one game that nobody (in his sense) wants to play don't transform in 2 variants that no one wants to play it ...
    just my 2 cents of course...

    9. November 2004, 09:46:35
    Great, I think thats what the majority of players want.

    9. November 2004, 09:42:48
    Mmmmm, Bell's and Alfonso's variant sounds reasonable.

    9. November 2004, 08:41:59
    Fencer, if we can come to a consensus on a way to make this game better, would you consider changing it, or does it stand the way it is?

    8. November 2004, 06:36:23
    ok, got it! thanks BB!

    7. November 2004, 17:04:41
    I don't know exactly which move (number) are we talking about. I tried to explain how I understand the rules.

    Let's say, that there is

    (a) a black piece on c1, white on c2 and nothing on c3 = black can't jump, because he can't move backward at the beginnig of his move...

    (b) a black piece on a1, white pieces on b1 and c2, and c1 and c3 are empty = black can/must jump from a1 to c1 and because he's already moving, he must jump further to c3.
