Equal score = lost

Postby Daggerheart » 13 April 2018, 18:05

I feel that equal score in Battle of LITS should result in a draw. Some would say that it's possible to use this calculation as a "skill" to win. I don't agree.

I think I prefer the knife edge. While a win by equal score doesn't feel like a true win I still think it's nice that it was at least settled. Draws sometimes feel like it was just a waste of time, which is probably why that so many games go to great length in order to settle tie scores.

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 close and this makes the game exciting. The no-draw rule appeals to me, it does offer extra to strategy - like trying to ensure that we fill the last place in case the scores should be equal.
