357 ( +1 | -1 ) FORUM game #4 (FG#4)Forum game #3 has now moved well past move 30. So far it has been a success I think and an interesting game. White started well in the opening, Black then moved into advantage with some good moves and now White is back in the lead but it should still be an open game. To follow up on the success I think it is time to start game #4. The rules have been changed a bit during game 3 and are now:
The rules: ####################################################### [*Foremost is to enjoy the game(s). So RULES here are guidelines we try to follow. But no penalty or negativity about any infraction or misunderstanding of them. In that case, we'll simply clarify and continue the game.] ^^ *Please DO have a board kept set-up to follow the game, if you wish to play. Thus, No "blindfold" moves, Please! ^^ *Anyone with Forum posting privleges can join at any time, but can only make moves for one side or the other; therefore must stick with the color that their first accepted move is. ^^ *When more than one player posts for the same move number, then the first legal move posted will be the accepted move in the game. ^^ *A player can post a move for his side at any point, but cannot make two consecutive moves. Some other player must make a move before the last player to post an accepted move can post another one. (At this time, Conditional Moves will not be made; but might be tried in the future sometime. Probably a later game.) ^^ * A game will be considered RESIGNED if no one posts a move within 48 hours for the side whose turn it is. 24 hours will though be added on Sundays at 00:01 AM. ^^ [*The first player to post an accepted move for that color (excluding the moderator) will be the Captain of that side for the game. ^^ *After move 30 it is possible to offer and draw or resign. Any player posting a move can suggest to his team to offer a draw or resign the game. The team then vote on the suggestion. The team captain counts the votes from the team members. The vote is valid if 2/3 of the team votes and is desided by simple majority rules (the team captain has two votes in case of a tie). In case of less than 2/3 of the team voting the game continues.
The captain can also at any time (after move 30) call for a vote on a draw offer or resignation.
From the time of the request the team has 3 days to vote. The game will be paused during the voting. ^^ *The person to create a new FORUM game will be REFEREE/MODERATOR. Moderator posts WILL BE TYPED TOTALLY IN CAPITAL LETTERS, THUS EVERYONE ELSE IS ASKED TO REFRAIN FROM USING ALL CAPS IN THEIR POSTINGS. ^^ *All participant or spectators are welcome to post notes after the game. Additionally, participants may comment as the game goes on as long as the move commented upon is at least 5 moves in the past. If any move sequence given as arising from that prior move#, try to avoid coming close to the present position. This is just to avoid commentary that could affect the ongoing play or strategy. [Still, its all in fun and so if it doesn't work out well, then next time notes can be prohibited until game completion.] ^^ Any suggestions about Rules or format are most welcome. ********************************************
Try to post the move in the topic like this:
21... d3 (a move for Black)
And the whole game move order (with your new move at the end) in the subject along with comments.
