Need rules advice

#1 Post by ssorenn » Tue May 08, 2018 12:12 am

I’m about tthe start a non anon game. Having not played one, or at the very least not in a very long time, is it acceptable to reference a past game to show ideas? I.E. is game 12345 i did this and it worked out like this.

Asking for an enemy. Thx

My students last term complained that my responses on the class forum were too terse. I can't imagine why.

To show ideas or more. Of course you can do so!
In particular to prove with your past record that you are a faithfull ally.

eg. It is good to have some draw-2 in your portfolio to demonstrate your reliability.

i believe this is okay even in anon games. i don't believe there is a rule against revealing yourself.

You're correct, Ziran. That's perfectly allowed.

What's not allowed is trying to circumvent press rules. Hence you cannot talk about ongoing Gunboat games in the forum.
