I'm going to put up some cash and meteorites once we get to a certain number of players.Each group winner will get a prize and the further you progress the bigger the prize.Come on come all-not necessary to join the FB group I should think but you know the old saying about curiousity and the cat
Eric Hanson is in-there's a new face .Rip Washington has been invited-he did accept my friend request earlier.I think he was one of the ones on the old yahoo/msn photo group.He hasn't played on IYT in a year--come on fellow sab/esp players, lets get a massive tourny rumbling
took a notion and created a FB group for Sabotage/Espionage players .Saw that Rip Washington aka Saboteur had a FB link in his profile as I was perusing an opponents setups.Have sent him a friend request.Playing some decent games on IYT at the min so will invite all opponents.It's a good platform for posting pics and possibly links to business websites and the like.Anyway,not everyones cup of tea but you can create a FB profile specifically for the group if you're concerned about privacy issues.Could be some fun http://www.facebook.com/groups/272272279545343/
oh the fun we're having ,all 41 of us reminiscing about old times and sharing that old sabotage picture album from back in the old days , Hildebrand in his clown getup--what a lark -the wine and beer is flowing-miss you all--Go Ireland!!
SL-Mark: Mark you were kinda new too cheeky ;-) moonhip is probably harking back to the old old names -if he's leaving the new breed out I can't see it being much of a show but we'll see---OPEN tourny after all
he mentions getting all the old players together for one last hurrah-Sandoz you were kinda newish so maybe he forgot but It could be interesting if we got a good 40 or 50 to join the june main open number 1
Nothingness: had no internet for couple weeks in the house last year after a lightning strike killed my modem-not much fun having to trudge to town to use the local pub wi-fi though it did have its' benefits
Chaos: ..now I'm confused........the bug makes it possible to in fact not just move forward--that is the bug....it is relevant if you were down to 5 pieces or less surely? Actually now I think about that I'm not sure the piece number relevance is known.Can you link the game in question for us please ...
Chaos: you said earlier when referring to the rule about not moving back where one came from...."One can corner an opponent by limiting their movement abilities using this rule. As has just been done to me..."...so I thought maybe you would take the opportunity to 'check' whether the bug had been fixed,not ask about it as we all know that is pretty much pointless .....good luck getting a corner variant implement if that is the plan--never was a fan of that one
I shouldn't have to write to him and refuse to do so--I found him ignorant--fair enough english is his second language and I don't speak his tongue but my request to have pictures deleted was hardly a technically challenging one---
On IYT (where I am now a paying member again) the next round of tournament starts when the sections are decided-seems logical
Chaos -they were simple questions about pictures on my profile that I wanted deleted.No way to delete them and no help from person who answered.Another point that tournament that I am supposedly still in--the outcome is decided--Nothingness wins the section yet everyone must wait for a nothing game to finish between the 2 lowest ranking players.Ridiculous
MTC: is it not possible for you to move 4 of your pieces next to his 2 and then when he takes one way you move the other,hope that's clear enough.I'm saying it may be possible for you to sneak past him anyway even tho your pieces are inferior If not I would write Fencer a message

MTC: I had a late night and I'm just awake so gonna try and use that as an excuse as to why I can't get my head round that game MTC,can't quite figure out whats happening.Wait,so it's your turn and you have 6 moving pieces left?Or have they already reset the game and corrected the bug?
anyway this bug needs sorted.I'm gonna drop Fencer a message and see if he can give us some satisfaction
*edit* to say your brackets around the bug link have disabled it,leave a space between bracket and link and it will re-enable

Dark Prince: I think you need to recheck the move numbers there mate.There was an occasion AFTER the rule break where his 5 did stay unmoved in the corner next to his HQ
*edit* you are partially right,there was another rule break when he had 2 pieces left that I didn't even notice.Go back further tho to when he had 3 pieces
as to why I let him take my sab I was finished with it.I wanted to capture all the mines to get that achievement which I did.3 more to get the MASTER achievement that only aaru has so far---yeah a bit geeky but ya know I love the game
Sandoz: on my current game with grillyx which will be over in 2 more moves his 5 general was in the middle of open squares,in fact he was given opportunity to do it again after I pointed out to him what happened.
as for our game-------you definitely could have benefitted from this bug

just happened to me with an opponent moving his piece back to square he just left and I reported the bug.I see the same bug was also reported by pauloaguia back in august 09.Check it out.Whats going on here,this will undoubtedly cause someone to lose/win a game they shouldn't at some point http://brainking.com/en/BugTracker In fact 4 instances of same bug reported as far back as 2005.Slack job Fencer
SL-Mark: It's amazing how often our instincts are right with this game,I think so anyway.I rarely lose a piece throwing it into an unknown opponents........... point in question,just now I pushed 2 recons up onto an opponents line revealing 4 unknowns and 3 of the 4 were exactly what I thought(2 recons and a 4).I had no clue on the 4th but the other 3 pieces gave clues with the movement.no pieces were taken beforehand ...that's my story and I'm stickin to it
Yvet,the poll ends after something like 30 days go by without a vote .... looks so far like the majority prefer a small fast and quick tourny.Sounds good ta me I sometimes wonder why there aren't so many more new players picking this game up.Maybe we should think about offering incentives as Nothingness touched on before with the memberships.
Josef said, in paraphrase"...When I hit the link for previouse move, first there's a need to hit it 3 times to show the position as it was before the actual one. More than that, when I come back to the last position - using the link for the next move - I can't make a move, there's no "hand". So I have to hit somewhere on a move in the list of moves, than click the last move on the list"
oh boy that is so annoying and illogical,well said that man

I just assumed everyone knew this,I'm sure others will chime in but it was always something I bore in mind when making moves of that nature for many years now.Even if it is changed now it would be hard for me personally to break the habit of ALWAYS taking the recon first
