Richard, will you be adding the standard rules for LYNGK any time soon? In my opinion, the standard game is much more fulfilling than the 6-stack variant.

I’ll bump this. Would love to have the real game game here to go along with the variant that’s implemented.

The standart game looks indeed much more interesting than the implemented variant.

I much prefer the standard game

I agree; I have removed myself from the championship for now as I find the “sudden death” variant super annoying.

The currently implemented 6-stack version is the one I like best. It allows for more agressive play and one needs to plan more in advance. I am happy with it.
My preference would be to give the option to play either version :-)

I’ve removed myself from the championship also, Allan. For me, this variant has become... not fun. Xander, at least I’ve found someone who likes it! I agree, let’s get the option to play either one. ;)

I like it, too, but I have never played the main variant.
I would certainly prefer if both variants were available.

For everyone’s interest, the only real life tournament organized by Kris Burm – as far as I am aware of – last year in Essen was played in the standard version. Kris told that even though the 6 stack version was the main version originally, it was often already over before the players were aware of it properly.
(I ended in second place in this tournament)

I vote for standard rules also. I would love to play LYNGK here, but IMHO 6-stack variant isn’t for me.

Just making sure this thread remains active. Please let us have the standard rules :)

Bump up !! Standard rules are cool and totally different – Please try to implement!! I’d say, a bit thicker stones would be fine, it’s not easy to read colors in the stack

Bump! Richard, pretty please? :)
Schaapmans at 2020-04-07
I’m all for the standard rules as well. This version is less fun for me.

The LYNGK championship dwindled to 15 participants last time… down to just one group. By contrast TZAAR has 29 participants, and DVONN 45.

I’ll add my name to the vote for both variants of Lyngk to be available. That would be great, Richard.

I played the main rules for the longest time and thought the games were dry and drawn out. I much prefer the snappier, aggressive play of stack-6. That being said, if implementing the main rule set would draw in more players, I am all for having the option to play either one. Is there a $$ issue in getting this done? Maybe we pool together some money for whoever can make this happen?
