Migeru v. rg
, : hit "edit page" to see how it's done. -- Migeru
We just keep adding numbers w4 b5 etc..? -- rg?
: when it gets to we make a new board. -- Migeru
: Off we go!
Question: is it possible to know (more or less) every permutation no a 9x9 board (is it like complicated noughts and crosses?)
Migeru: I don't understand the question. You mean how many positions there can be on a board? It's more complicated than noughts and crosses because of the capture rule.
rg?: I mean you have probably seen this kind of position many times, but because of the size of the board there must be a limit to...er...urgh...argh...oh! It's sunny in Brighton today.
: If had been played before , would have made you flinch? -- Migeru
: going in all the way to the kitchen... -- Migeru
: Eat the locust and abuse the scorpion!
: No need to raise the stakes even higher. -- Migeru
Are you free on Friday evening?
: Ouch. -- Migeru
: The maggot eats the cherry.
: Nice try. -- Migeru
: he, I cheated and moved my number 7. Did you see? And then I moved it back again! The dancing !
: yes, I saw that: you put yourself in self-atari. LOL That will teach you to trust your instinct. -- Migeru
: So you haven't spotted my fiendishly cunning plan yet? Eat the wallpaper and swallow the noodles.
redux: Bloody diagonals!
: Don't tell me you cheated again...
: Well, self-atari spotting (and attempted fixing) doesn't count as cheating when you are 35 kyu. Well, that's what my special rule books says. (The one I wrote, I mean.)
: I've got YunZi stones at home. Same make as the ones in the pic.
: Beginner's luck, I say.
: We now have a huge and wonderful hole where our kitchen wall used to be
: Are you referring to your flat in Brighton, or to my comment to ?
: Took me a while to see the reference to the game...
: I didn't notice it 'till you mentioned it...
I'm ready to pass...
And then you will have to talk me through the game...
: I think you're almost 100% dead. Let's go back to your first mistake ().
I thought of that, but it seemed to me I was building a wall too low in my territory. You'd just march across with me to my stone and all the space behind your wall would be yours.
(How many handicap stones do I get next time?)
: I would probably follow up with something like this. -- Migeru
I'm beggared at the moment because I don't have a place to set up my Go board (a piece of paper with a 9X9 grid drawn on it.) Like I said, they've knocked down our wall, I've painted our bedroom, but still a few weeks! Which means I can't work through the options and learn anything! I'll see you tomorrow, Migeru! We will enjoy ourselves! I'm currently listening to Fleetwood Mac, "Tusk". I imagine you'd enjoy it. Perhaps you've heard it a thousand times.
I think if you give me five stones, I will win! We could start with five and see where that gets us? Equality is my aim, but I understand that until I can lay out my stones and ponder, my progress is limited.
See you tomorrow.
