I'm soon to resurface on FIBS too and may even use this "spielberg" name (I bumped into Zorba and fortuna whilst planning my reappearance and blew my cover within two shouts). IF you can get Java running on your Chromebook Amy then it will run JavaFibs perfectly. Message me here (that is send me a message rather than posting in this thread for all to read) with detail on your Chromebook - who made it and which model is it?

Actually William Patterson sent me this one a few days
earlier. Thanks!

You will have trouble finding a better display of playing strength!
From my numbers above that gives an average of 2.24 which is just
amazing! No luck involved in getting such a stellar result! Mochy
analyzed it at a higher setting and got 2.17 which is even more
awesome!

Since I analyze all matches on standard "World class" setting this
gave me the idea that I could create a separate database where all
matches are analyzed on a stronger setting. Perhaps wait until XG3 is
out and then analyze everything again?

Also one thing that seems to be missing is a display on what analysis
setting was used in a match? Some info dialog "This match was analyzed
with these settings:" would be sweet.

Anyway.. back to devouring some more christmas cookies! :-)

Backgammon Studio The
swiss army knife of backgammon!

Best regards,

Hi!  It's Amy.  I have missed you all!  I have been having computer issues.  I just got a new one.  Unfortunately, I can't find out how to get onto FIBS with the Chromebook.  There is no Windows, Linux, etc.  Does anyone have any idea how to get around this?  I would appreciate your help if you do.  I'm waiting to get addicted to bg again.

Amy :)

The only thing I can think of is to use ParlorPlay.   Which is probably the WORST client for playing on FIBS but seems like your only solution.  http://www.parlorplay.com/  Good luck.

Campaigns / Re: Standing Rock
« Last post by stog on December 19, 2016, 02:25:19 PM »
The event at Standing Rock is giving life to a movement of American people whose unified voice can rise above the grinding of bulldozers and the screams of injured protesters.
It ushers in a new idea of what it means to be American and amplifies the message to police and national guard soldiers that their archaic tactics of violence toward Native people will no longer be tolerated.

Backgammon / Help regarding Tavla's Hit-and-Run rules
« Last post by blackgammon on December 16, 2016, 02:54:24 AM »
I recently started the Turkish game Tavla. When I first read about it what interested me the most was the no hit-and-run rule when players are in their own home. When I played a game recently with my favorite opponent, we encountered situation that I'll describe below that we've been in disagreement about and maybe an expert could shed some light on the issue? Or share your opinion on weather or not what I'm about to describe is considered an illegal move or not.

The game has been played without a hitch until here....

White has 13 of it's pieces in its homeboard distributed more or less evenly on its 6, 5, and  3 blots except for two piece which are on the 7blot just outside of their home.....

Black has two pieces in the Whites home board at this time with a piece on the 4 blot and the other on the 1 blot. Everyone with me still?

It's now Whites turn to roll and white rolls a double 3s

(Now here is what the two players are in disagreement about)

White has two pieces on the 7 blot, and with the double threes takes one of its pieces and hits the lone black piece on the 4 blot. Then covers it with the other piece that was on the 7blot now making a house on the 4blot. Now with the remaining two moves white has remaining, moves one of its pieces from the 4 blot to the 1 blot(this piece is same-2nd piece, that moved from the 7 to the 4 blot to cover after the 1st hit on its move) and that hits the other open black piece on the 1 blot. Then for the last remaining three takes the 1st piece it moved that hit the 1st black piece on the 4 blot and moves it to cover the white piece that hit the 2nd black piece that was hit on the 1 blot.....

Essentially, the question is, is this an illegal Hit-and-Run move or is what white did allowed?
Please any feed back would be appreciated, or if you have a question about anything on the topic, please, feel free to ask. I've been straining my brain trying to figure this one out.

Thank you!
