A few questions about Croda. I know it was "not invented here", so I apologize in advance if this is not kosher.
You say that Croda is minimal; nothing can be removed without killing the game. How would it be killed by making the promotion rule like English rather than Polish draughts? How would it be killed by making it "take as you please" instead of mandatory maximum capture?
Thanks for your time.

I tried it with Firefox and IE11. With Chrome the Play/Watch screen has the same problem.

Your change to a new style did not go quite well: the area where e.g. a gameboard is shown is much too small...

Quite annoying, those commercial entries in your guestbook! Can't you block them? Or do you get money for it? ;-)

What re your thoughts on a game on a hexhex board having the move mechanism of Hexsymple and the target forms of Havannah?
An understandable result of a simple mashup here is that rings are really, really easy to form. So I would suggest that there be a caveat on the cells it surrounds, or scoring based on the number of winning structures one has. I would love to hear what you have to say on the subject (especially since the proposed game is blatantly part of your intellectual property).

Correction, the formula is: NumberOfTurns=NumberOfSingleplacements + ((Side x Side - 1)/2 - NumberOfSingleplacements)/NumberOfSingleplacements.

Hi Christian, in the About Symple page your estimate of the number of turns is a little rough, and the square root is not accurate for the 15x15 board: I made a little program to calculate the number of turns, and it turns out that for the 19x19 board with 10 single placements you can fill the 180 points in 17 turns, so the total turns are 27 also, which is not mentioned on the About Symple page. The formula is: NumberOfTurns=NumberOfSingleplacements + ((Side x Side - 1)/2) / NumberOfSingleplacements. For size 15x15 you get (i=NumberOfSingleplacements): i=5 ) 27 turns, i=6 ) 24 turns, i=7 ) 22 turns, and for i=8 to i=14 ) 21 turns!

On 2nd thought it makes sense, because the program expects the password of my opponent...
Maybe the errormessage could be extended, someting like "... (or it is not your turn to make a move)"?
