Re: Announcing the 2018 GvI and FvA Showdowns

I think it would be more fair to compare what year the game ended, than the number of centers at the end of the game. Either way, it doesn't really fix the problem, as ties are still possible. The risk of tie is higher but I agree with you it is more efficient and much harder to trick. We could hav...

Re: Announcing the 2018 GvI and FvA Showdowns

Would we see a German play to 1920 in an attempt to literally eliminate Italy, to insure the German’s performance as Italy would be better? How much would play be stifled by not wanting to risk a 1920 elimination? I don't think it is easily feasible, if feasible because: - the game still stops when...

Re: Announcing the 2018 GvI and FvA Showdowns

1v1 - new rule proposal in case of tie Most players are conviced that : - in FvA : A is a little bit stronger than F - in GvI : G is quite stronger than I. That's an issue because in case of tie, the player who get A (resp. G) is advantaged. I suggest the following new principle in case of tie. ---...

Re: Championship Belt Game Series

Championship is blocked once more because the new holder is not aware of the process and he was not explained it by the former holder. I suggest to add this new rule : If the holder of the Belt doesn't create the game within 7 days after taking the Belt, this latter is considered to be abandonned an...

Re: Bilateral Games (Germany vs Italy & France vs Austria)

Austria (Germany) are advantaged vs France (Italy). Austria and Germany have some "rushes" strategies that afford them to win in making a "touchdown" at 18 centers whereas they would clearly lose this advantage a few turns later. An easy solution could be to set the victory conditions at 20. More is...
