new breakthrough variant
  • Elsabio at 2015-02-22

    Hi,I was thinking about a BT variant which allows draws and a, le’s say, different strategy. Tthe rules are: the first stone which reaches the last rank gets 3 points, the second 2 and thethe 3rd gets one point. theortical endscores are then 6:0 5:1 ,...3:3,...0:6. I think the  tacticl considerations will change. What do you think about it?.

    For me, the game is complicated enough already :p

    I think it is a good idea..

    I think, in practice, we would play your variant almost the same way we are playing the current version;
    as winning in Breakthrough means at least drawing in your variant.
    Anyway, it’s a nice idea and it might be interesting to try.
