I don’t speak French, so any French speaker who would like to correct my phrases for “reason to be”, “reason to fight/war”, and “manner/way of war”, are more than welcome; I will update this post with the corrections I am sure will be needed. :smiley:

/resigns after white’s first move😶/
If I were to ever try that, I would need to be white. I know that I would lose if I was black. My opponent would easily get their eyes.

That board literally drives white to lose the will to live.

I’ll play you as Black if you want.

I have lost all of the games so far. I think I am better at white though. That may be because I will run around though.

Personally I found playing White much scarier. I felt like I was at the mercy of Black leaving opportunities. I’d love to play more games, though.

I usually try and rely upon this in my lost 19x19 games, although it doesn’t work. I usually go into it thinking that I am either going to lose or get eyes, although in reality, I would have to also take up enough of their territory. On the other hand, I am never the one trying to keep the other person out, so I don’t have as much experience with that.

Long time ago I played the shape game.

The Shape Game is another exercise of a similar nature (and also linked to in the Sensei’s article).

I’d be up for giving either a shot.

I wonder if there could be an AI vs AI game on that board.

Sounds very interesting :slight_smile: @yebellz: I sent you two challenges, one as white, one as black.

French Speaker here :
Here are the correct phrasing in french. I translation is not word for word, I try to maintain the meaning and the tone :
“reason to be”, ==> “Raison d’être” . You’re correct but there is a disturbing space before ëtre.

Reason to fight ==> “Casus Belli”. It is latin but that’s what we would use. Sinon “Causes de la guerre”

manner/way of war : “Modalités de combat”, or latin again : “modus operandi”, which sounds better.

My Esperanto and English struck with the “d’ être” vs. “d’être”. :smiley:

Is it okay that I went with “Modalités de Combat” instead of “Modus Operandi”? To my knowledge, the phrase “Modus Operandi” is only used in English to refer to the way in which a criminal habitually commits crimes, so I wanted to avoid it since the main text of my post is in English.

It is ok to use “Modalités de combat”, it is perfectly clear in french.

Does anyone want to the play the Shape Game in particular?

I’d play a game on any of those shape games with any color, for the fun of it.
Defy me and I’ll play it.
