Slither Board
  • alihv at 2013-08-30

    Hi all,

    I've just made a prototype board for Slither.
    Check it out “here”:

    It's pretty raw yet (you might likely need to reload the page first time…) and doesn't enforce the rules, but hey, it's an early release.

    Hopefully it'll be useful.

  • Ray Garrison ★ at 2013-08-30

    very nice! Thank you much…. Maybe you should send a message to the webmaster and he might put a direct analysis link on every slither game page…

  • alihv at 2013-08-30

    I followed your suggestion, thank you.

  • Carroll ★ at 2013-08-30

    Nice, thank you!

    Could you please add something to remind the directions as for an old game it is not always obvious?

    Also I need a button for the arrows because apple devices are known not to have arrow keys (nor keyboard on your page).

  • alihv at 2013-08-30

    Yup, I have a tablet myself, so I'm in one boat with you here.
    I plan to add both features in the next version.

  • g057721 at 2013-08-30

    this is very useful, thanks!

    I don't mind if the script doesn't enforce rules (my goban doesn't either), but apple device support would be great.

    That's awesome. I had no problem with it (on Firefox on a laptop).

  • The_Shark_c at 2013-08-31

    Oops. That should have been “William Fraser” commenting above. I'm “just a bot”.

    I clicked the 'GAME FROM LG' button, and got an error msg
    is this implemented yet?


  • blewsky at 2013-11-18

    maybe it doesnt work from Chrome?

  • Florian Jamain at 2013-12-11

    You have to copy the link of your game and then press “game from lg” … this is working with chrome.

    You could ask the webmaster to add a direct link as for the other games !

    Thx for your work.

    PS: What about your bot alihv ? (-;

    Game from LG in Firefox just gave me:

    I'm just doing it right now with firefox, it is definetly working well.

  • na_wspak at 2013-12-11

    It is working well on firefox 25.0.1. I have been looking forward to have such site for so long, BTW. I used to use GIMP for game analysis…

  • na_wspak at 2013-12-11

    I noticed that it is possible to place an incorrect move with diagaonal connection. Would it be hard to prevent it?

  • Florian Jamain at 2013-12-11

    Will you soon play again here na_wspak ? (-;

  • na_wspak at 2013-12-11

    You shall never know the hour ;)

  • alihv at 2013-12-12

    > Game from LG in Firefox just gave me:
    Well, it shouldn't happen if you paste the game URL or ID in the text box before pressing the button. I'll fix that when I get my hands on it.

    > Would it be hard to prevent it?
    Thanks na_wspak. It wouldn't be hard.

    > What about your bot alihv ? (-;
    I haven't worked on it since then. Hmm, maybe I should have another look.

  • Florian Jamain at 2013-12-12

    It would be nice :P

  • alihv at 2013-12-17

    Here's a little something that could get rid of that URL copy-pasting depending on your browser.

    For Firefox, here's a script for the GreaseMonkey extension:

    However, it doesn't work in Chrome and I don't know why. But if you bookmark this URL:““+encodeURI(document.URL));

    then you can press the bookmark to open the board. Wastes bookmark space though, so it's not a perfect solution.

  • Luis BolaNos at 2014-01-06

    Great job, alihv! Beautiful and smooth. One suggestion: when a stone slides, it often passes below other pieces on the board. That looks a bit weird. I think it would be better if it always passed over them.

  • z at 2014-01-19

    I've created an alternative at

    Here's a sample game imported from LG:

  • eobllor ★ at 2014-03-03

    Very nice board, thanks, z! It seems there is still a slight problem when performing the moves (maybe it's meant that way, but I doubt so): one can slide more than one stone before dropping a new one.
