Slither Board
  • alihv at 2013-08-30

    Hi all,

    I’ve just made a prototype board for Slither.
    Check it out here

    It’s pretty raw yet (you might likely need to reload the page first time...) and doesn’t enforce the rules, but hey, it’s an early release.

    Hopefully it’ll be useful.

  • Ray Garrison ★ at 2013-08-30

    very nice! Thank you much.... Maybe you should send a message to the webmaster and he might put a direct analysis link on every slither game page...

  • alihv at 2013-08-30

    I followed your suggestion, thank you.

  • Carroll ★ at 2013-08-30

    Nice, thank you!

    Could you please add something to remind the directions as for an old game it is not always obvious?

    Also I need a button for the arrows because apple devices are known not to have arrow keys (nor keyboard on your page).

  • alihv at 2013-08-30

    Yup, I have a tablet myself, so I’m in one boat with you here.
    I plan to add both features in the next version.

  • g057721 at 2013-08-30

    this is very useful, thanks!

    I don’t mind if the script doesn’t enforce rules (my goban doesn’t either), but apple device support would be great.

    That’s awesome. I had no problem with it (on Firefox on a laptop).

  • The_Shark_c at 2013-08-31

    Oops. That should have been “William Fraser” commenting above. I’m “just a bot”.

    I clicked the ‘GAME FROM LG’ button, and got an error msg
    is this implemented yet?


  • blewsky at 2013-11-18

    maybe it doesnt work from Chrome?

  • Florian Jamain ★ at 2013-12-11

    You have to copy the link of your game and then press “game from lg” ... this is working with chrome.

    You could ask the webmaster to add a direct link as for the other games !

    Thx for your work.

    PS: What about your bot alihv ? (-;

    Game from LG in Firefox just gave me:

    I’m just doing it right now with firefox, it is definetly working well.

  • na_wspak at 2013-12-11

    It is working well on firefox 25.0.1. I have been looking forward to have such site for so long, BTW. I used to use GIMP for game analysis...

  • na_wspak at 2013-12-11

    I noticed that it is possible to place an incorrect move with diagaonal connection. Would it be hard to prevent it?

  • Florian Jamain ★ at 2013-12-11

    Will you soon play again here na_wspak ? (-;

  • na_wspak at 2013-12-11

    You shall never know the hour ;)

  • alihv at 2013-12-12

    > Game from LG in Firefox just gave me:
    Well, it shouldn’t happen if you paste the game URL or ID in the text box before pressing the button. I’ll fix that when I get my hands on it.

    > Would it be hard to prevent it?
    Thanks na_wspak. It wouldn’t be hard.

    > What about your bot alihv ? (-;
    I haven’t worked on it since then. Hmm, maybe I should have another look.

  • Florian Jamain ★ at 2013-12-12

    It would be nice :P

  • alihv at 2013-12-17

    Here’s a little something that could get rid of that URL copy-pasting depending on your browser.

    For Firefox, here’s a script for the GreaseMonkey extension:

    However, it doesn’t work in Chrome and I don’t know why. But if you bookmark this URL:“”+encodeURI(document.URL));

    then you can press the bookmark to open the board. Wastes bookmark space though, so it’s not a perfect solution.

  • Luis BolaNos at 2014-01-06

    Great job, alihv! Beautiful and smooth. One suggestion: when a stone slides, it often passes below other pieces on the board. That looks a bit weird. I think it would be better if it always passed over them.

  • z at 2014-01-19

    I’ve created an alternative at

    Here’s a sample game imported from LG:

  • eobllor ★ at 2014-03-03

    Very nice board, thanks, z! It seems there is still a slight problem when performing the moves (maybe it’s meant that way, but I doubt so): one can slide more than one stone before dropping a new one.
