About PBEM server
Nowadays PBEM ( )
is a server which combines convenient Graphics interface with e-mail system.

About Renju (WRL rules)
This renju variation is more ancient than RIF. It is also known as
"Old Renju". WRL rules are mostly the same as RIF rules.
But there are 3 exceptions:
1. The board size is 17x17.
2. Forks 4-4 are allowed.
3. No stupid "120 moves rule".

Openings WRL rules
- The first player puts the 1st move to the center of the board.
- The second player puts the 2nd move within 3x3 central square.
- The first player puts the 3nd move within 7x7 central square and
declares how many 5th moves will be offered in that game.
- The second player has a right to swap.
- The white player puts the 4th move anywhere on board.
- The black player puts as many 5th moves on the board as it was declared before.
- The white player chooses one 5th from these offerings and plays the 6th move.
After that the the opening stage is over and the game continues normally by renju rules.

Tournament's System:
Total time limit: 90 days per game.
Each player will play 10-12 games.

I think, that every Renju interested player will read it and understand, but I still ask if someone wants it to be translated.

By the way, I didn't know that there are some Renju players in Moldavia, but I was totally surprised reading about Renju players from France :zdziwko:

Best Regards

P.S. Jeśli kogoś interesuje turniej Renju offline z nietypowymi zasadami i nie za bardzo rozumie co tam jest napisane, niech napisze to się przetłumaczy tekst Nickolaya na polski.

IMHO the more strange fact is that nobody from Poland took part :wink:

Was there really someone from Slovakia? Wasn't it Slovenia?

Does anybody know what is that stick in hands of Mr.Suslov on photo?
Is it an useful equipment for renju players? :-D

pente_fan - 2006-12-11, 16:25

Well, i suppose this is a samurai sword. Meijins use it for chopping off heads of BAD renju players :-)
Any other ideas?

Katana (btw. it means sword in jp)? Looks like this one is priceless and only well-deserved players can touch it :P Don't try to understand japanese ppl, coz they are bizzare.
