Kill-All Go

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.


I am going to challenge you to one of the top version, you as black.

So I lost to Yebellz, he managed to get 2 eyes. (me as white).
Congratulations, I’ll do better next time.

I don’t know how to link a game in the forum.


Here it is: :slight_smile:


And I won one against Samraku, still as white.

It is difficult, it is a kind of whack a mole game.
I killed all the moles but it was on the edge.


I think I messed up badly in a game against @Samraku

Want to start some more, @yebellz @OldLion ?

I could add another correspondence game. How about the classic shape game?

I’d do 17 stone free handicap if you like.

Still with the objective for black to kill all, right?

I think I’d prefer the shape game, and I don’t mind which color.

And whatever we do, can you try setting ~353 komi? I’m curious if that will help katago out.

Okay we can try the shape game.

Anytime. I feel like playing white for a change, or two games with each color at the same time.

I’d like to request a game as well. Since I’m bad at living, I want to be white :smiley:

I’m usually online at around 1PM GMT.

I’ll send requests to both of you when I get home from work in a few hours.
