Captures: Black has captured 2 White stones White has captured 0 Black stone
Communal play. Feel free to enter your name below and play the next stone (try not to join both teams!).
Most recent move marked with (1): so the team to play next is whichever colour doesn't have a stone marked (1) on the board. When you play, replace the opponents' (1) with a normal piece, place your (1) where you move, and update the $$B / $$W line.
If you wanted to move somewhere different to where someone just moved, you could always copy the board below and see if anyone responds.
ChrisHowlett - rejoining at least temporarily despite severe rustiness
Gwyntar - who is also rusty, and given his insane plan thought it would be best to get permission first :)
Angoel - who is also rusty, albeit possibly at a higher standard of rustyness. Erm, does that make sense?
Um, eep. I thought ChrisHowlett was looking for a game against a non-good opponent? IIRC it was Angoel who soundly beat MoonShadow last time... When it was Kitiara who Chris was playing that made a bit more sense, but... are you sure this match is the one you want to be playing? --AC
Don't scare him away! He's the only person who's done anything here for ages. --Angoel
I'm slightly amused that my offer to play someone got erased to start this match, but never mind. I would have joined the smaller team, but they seem to be even already and white has always made a move whenever I look. --Vitenka (It's relevant, because I'm not a good player at all)
Anyone want to try continuing it from the safer play above? Though I would just like to say that it doesn't form half as pretty a pattern as the WikiNow has. It looks like it's about to form a glider. --Vitenka (Oh! ConwayGo. There must be a way.)
A standardish possible move sequence from here. White has weaknesses at a due to the cutting stone, and because black generally has sente. However, black is unable to use the 5,5 stone as effectively as desirable - basically, the only advantage got is to provide the weakness at a and to prevent 4 being played at 9, giving black corner space and the possibility of escape to the right. --Angoel
I was thinking (5,5) was more useful than that, and was wondering if anyone else wanted to play :) --Gwyntar
Oh, it quite possibly is. However, I don't really know how to exploit it ;), and so the above sequence doesn't really take it into account (the above sequence being just a possible idea of how the shape could develop) --Angoel
