Title: Izdari Boards!
Post by: John on April 20, 2019, 01:58:21 AM
Just saw the code update to izdari boards. Pretty awesome! Hopefully this means people (probably nobles) will give playing izdari a chance!

Is the set-up correct in game? On the announcement thread there seemed to be more than one templar.

Right you are!  Thank you for catching this.

The boards now reset like so:
.....1...2...3...4...5...6...7...8...9...10

A.| [T] [K] [K] [A] [D] [D] [A] [L] [L] [W]
B.| [K] [H] [D] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [D] [H] [L]

Which, I believe, matches the help file:

Seems neat, although classic Izdari itself seems awful complicated.
There's no way to add duplicates of some piece in the board right?

Just speculating of some possibility of inventing a variant with a simpler set up or something with such a feature, although I have no clue how much that'd affect interest in the game if at all, seems niche af.

I guess right now one could always create a variant that have certain pieces removed/moved around if nothing else.

Cool update.

I'll have to find out where you can actually get the goddamned boards, and not just the pieces.

After all these years it'll be interesting to see if the actual game is any good.

Kadius seems a safe bet.

The boards have been updated so they can be reset for either 'classic' or 'assassins' settings.

Boards have been updated to allow placing new pieces on the board.

use board place <piece> <location>

use board place Z i7


Upper case pieces will be colored yellow.

Lower case pieces will be colored blue.

Super neat!!

Anyone wishing to test a new type of game can now choose between 10x10 or 8x8 boards, and even spin a macro to have go from the rseted board to their custom game layout.

Checkers seems intuitive enough to have develop in Zalanthas.
