Just to remind you changes done before: clicking on the selected pawn will deselect it
I totally agree with this. I've only played the game maybe 3 times, and in one case my only option to win was chasing down my opponent and capturing, and as long as that option existed I was going to keep trying, but it just went on and on. I think I finally just went into the center and ended it cause it was driving me crazy.Cappie wrote:It is a serious flaw in the game.
I have had a game just like that once, with myself in your position. There is no reason for me to go in the middle. And no reason for the other player to take the last spots in the center.
The only way to end this is if you can cross a bridge and score the last points or can catch a pawn from the other player in one turn.
I suggest a draw if no pawn (single or double) passes a bridge, or captures pawn(s) after X consecutive moves. With such rule, it will be impossible to prevent a game from ending.Liallan wrote:If someone can't win and still refuses to move, then that's the fault of the player. But mostly I think this is a fault of the game. It certainly would be nice to have a solution to this. But if someone still has a chance to win they should have the opportunity to try, so I'd only want an early end if there's just no way someone can move up in the standings.
