I would like to suggest that Keryo Pente be added to the site. It wouldn't take much, it is the same as pente, except that groups of three stones can also be captured, and a total of 15 (or more) stones is required to win by captures.

Are you saying that the site is averse to new concepts, or that the players wouldn't really be interested, or both?

i think that there is a rule:

we give priority to new games in stead of
a variation ,on a game that is allready on the English site

but you could be lucky
nothing is impossible

Very Happy

There is checkers here, also draughts (a variant of checkers, commonly called "International Checkers") ...... also they have ponto diavolo and Kahuna, which are similar in that they both involve bridges (only in one they are pre-placed). Therefore, the peculiar reluctance to add game variants is mystifying!

If you say that Kahuna and Ponte are variants... that is like saying chess and checkers are variants because you play them on the same board.

And yes we are very reluctant to do variants, reasons being:
1. it clutters up the site
2. every variant means that not a completely new game will be added
3. tournaments will start slower or even will not start because player base will become to small
