SDG uses the following notational system for Generatorb games:
The SDG implementation now contains the variants Globes and Front Line by default.
Each player would start with 1 globe. Red's globe would be placed on D4, blue's globe would be placed on E5. On your turn you can either move a globe or move one of your other pieces (basically globes are just another piece).
The a8-h1 line is designated by a diagonal line. In addition to the existing victory conditions, you can now win by occupying any 5 of the 8 squares on the front line.
I was thinking that for a variant maybe that the starting set-up would be only the 4 pieces in generatorb with no globes on the board. The game would still have globes, but you wouldn’t start with one. I was wondering if this would add to the strategy or would players just immediately build a globe and place it where the start in the regular game. Just a thought. I have to do some play testing to see if other beginning strategies come up. –Istari–
