Challenge for geniuses looks very interesting, but what happens if someone just plays normal game and doesnâ€™t want to make shapes or fails to make given shape? How is the winner of the game decided? For example: winner is the one who makes given shape, if both players make it then winner is one with more pointsâ€¦?

Hi @ST000MA and about tournament it is must for players to try to make the given shape.If they doesnâ€™t want to make the shape than whatâ€™s the point in joining the tournament and players will make the given shape collectively if they make the given shape correctly than each player get a point if not than they donâ€™t get the point.They can also make separate shapes in that case the player who make the shape correctly will get the point if both player make correct shape than both get there point.Winner of the game is decided normally.

^Cool shape, but must we make it with stones or draw it?

hi @xhu98 you must make it with stones.

Oh Godâ€¦This is much harder than the flowerâ€¦Do you want us to deliberately make the shape during the game, or it is just fine if we can find a couple of stones at endgame position that form the same shape?

hi @xhu98 yes you have to make it deliberately while trying to win :).

Wowâ€¦You mean the vertices of the diagram are occupied by stones? What about the lines? Show me how to do it or everyone will find this impossible

as this shape is difficult players can also position couple of stones at endgame to form this shape.

Hi @san,

Thanks for the diagram! I am thinking that this might be too hard for players to complete; while shape one is any flower, which can be made much easier, in a real game it is rare to see the star shape you mentioned. And, if you are going to disqualify those who fail to form this shape, they might be very dissatisfiedâ€¦
