Duo to the Death

Blokus has taken over my life

Duo Freestyle

Posted by nand on March 11, 2010

I talked to pentti today & he (uh, assume it’s a “he”, pentti…? :)) tells me that with modifications the freestyle idea is feasible for duo also. Player A picks pieces for both colours (violet and orange); Player B decides whether to play violet or orange.  (I suspect that one should further refine this by permitting specification of exact positions for pieces if Player A wishes–this would be key for X and F openings.) Worth trying out. The best thing about this is that it would open up a lot of mirrorable first moves, as Player A can specify a non-mirror reply.
