Re: Same site play

Certainly not going to buy a premium membership if I'm being bullied into it. Way to play the victim, passive-aggressive much? That's an interesting stereotype. I'm not going to buy a membership either. But I'm not going to pretend I just MIGHT if you do this or that. I pay nothing, so I have no ri...

Re: ELO Animation at end of game

I find things moving across the screen extremely irritating. Especially squirrels and cockroaches.
The people who invent these things must be sadists.

Re: Equal score = lost

I'm still quite new to this game, but it really became my favourite game very fast. It's visually beautiful, and lends itself to rapid play - other games like quarto, castello, even gyges (all games I like) have me agonising over every move and are quite stressful. Most of my LITS games are very clo...

Re: Do not inhibit free expression of thought

Earlier today, 8/14/18, Boardgamearena server would not allow the epithet: jerk. I object. A large part of boardgaming is the repertoire. We insult each other with each turn. It's now called trash talk, but it's how games are played. Eliminate all censors. Battle filth if you must, but don't kill c...

Thanks for your reply. I have noticed the (no replace). Either I missed it before, or else it was inserted after my first query. I wonder which?
But no sweat, the game is over and I am no longer a beginner.

Beginners Rules

Help please. Playing my first game, I don't see how I can replace a piece. Must I then assume that the 'beginners rules' do not allow replacement? Where can I find these 'beginners rules'?

Re: People using AI?

To a degree, I sympathise with Daggerheart's suspicions. The suspicion of AI hangs over the best players. Meaning the use of computer programs. Knowing that your opponent might always or even sometimes resort to AI is irksome. But I see it as having advantages. Having a few bots around to knock you ...

Ratings (rankings?)

As a newbie here (my first day) I am puzzled by one thing. The help section describes an ELO system of rating, 4 digit, with a beginning rating of 1500. But all the players in Quarto are far below this, the top player having a rating of under 800. Can anyone enlighten me, please?
