Example:

|
|
| x
| x x x
| o x o
| x o x
| o x o
| o o o o x o x o

"o WINS BITCH! etc etc"

(Pieces are all 2 spaces apart from each other and from bar. At least, they are when I type them in. Grid is 8 x 8. Try not to fuck up the spacing. God I hope this works)

The game:

|
|
|
|
|
|
|
| o
| | | | | | | | |

Obviously, alternate turns as x or o. Oh, and make sure at the end of your post, you say x's go or something so we keep track.

x's go

I propose we use code tags for the board, similar to the chess thread.

Code: Select all

Why put off till today what you could just as easily get done tomorrow?

I can mathematically prove that 1 equals 0!.

Parts a-x in my plan weren't that important anyways.

So, I got tired of the fact that the appearance of my band name in my signature made my posts on this forum the dominant result when googling for my music. Anyway, if you think I might happen to be a good musician, you can test this theory here.
