New game: Lines Of Action!

We have a new board game: Lines Of Action!

lines-of-action-game-board

The objective of the game is to bring all of one’s pieces together into a contiguous body so that they are connected vertically, horizontally or diagonally. This game is in the programme of the Mind Sports Olympiad and is very popular among the participants.

Lines Of Action – go ahead and give it a go!

Baltic online tournaments in Draughts

The idea of organising online Russian Checkers tournaments for Baltic players is now moving forwards. In addition to Russian Checkers, we’ll also have a separate tournament series in 10×10 Draughts.

The dates and times of the tournament series have been fixed and they are as follows.

Russian Checkers: every Sunday in June at 20:00 EEST (Eastern European Summer Time). That is 17:00 in UTC.

The dates are:

  • June 3rd
  • June 10th
  • June 17th
  • June 24th

10×10 Draughts: every Thursday in June at 20:00 EEST (Eastern European Summer Time). That is 17:00 in UTC.

The dates are:

  • June 7th
  • June 14th
  • June 21st
  • June 28th

The tournaments have been added also to our future tournaments list. We can discuss the details in the forum.

As said in the forum post, at first these tournament series are for entertainment purposes and to get checkers players in the Baltics to socialise with each other. Later on, we’ll probably have awards and titles and other cool stuff.

There is no preregistration, just show up in the tournament room before it starts and you can register there. Also, you don’t have to participate in all the tournaments in the series but you’ll increase your winning chances if you do.

 

See you at the tournament!

Cheers,
