# Share your games with 6+ groups

Another remarkable point is the result. White won by 1 1/2 points. But realize that this means Black won on the board by four points before komi

Yeah, it looks like I misremembered.

Nice fork! I’m always so happy to see someone find my code useful!

By the way, I think I noticed a bug. Using the mark tool on empty space seems to cause the app to hang in an endless loop.

Did you try to have even more? Seems there is still some wasted stones/space. (30+19=49)

No, but feel free to have a go at more.

I get 7 on a 9x9.
Give me the idea to propose it as exercise for full beginners to practice what is two eyes and connection/cut between the groups.

Maybe one could squeeze in more with seki

Hehe next exercice for beginners in view, to practice seki. Surely you get more groups if a group is a alived connected chain of stones. If’s like two groups for the prize of one, although a seki takes a bit more place to work.
So here on 9x9

That’s 10 groups.

31 groups can live without seki on 19x19.

132 groups, for a given definition of the term, can live in seki on 19x19.

Still 13x13, @Atorrante ?

Quite a nice design both (3 more groups with 49 stones to use only…, and the way to make Sekis with as less stones as possible)

No thanks, I pass.

Perfect for wallpaper for …

Why black has a group with 2 eyes and white doesn’t?

Why not?

Ah, perhaps I should have said using seki, if the living group is also being counted.

Linguistic point.
