Contest 34 is Underway

Postby Bill Salot on Sat Jul 22, 2017 4:58 am

Judges needed! Join the club! Unofficial World Championship Checker Problem Composing Contest 34 is underway.

Sharpen your wits by reviewing the six, clever, original, unpublished, animated checker problems and solutions in Contest 34. The contest is at the link below and at the link on the cover page.

Identify which one of the six problems you deem the best; then help determine the winner by anonymously pressing the appropriate voting button. Doing so will pop-up a tally of the current votes.

Finally, if you don't mind going public, prove your prowess at evaluating problems and get your name on the ladder of judges by announcing your vote either here on this forum or via e-mail to me at the address under the diagrams.

Good luck!

Congratulations to Jim Loy for the winning problem,Tectonic, with 7 votes. I voted for Self-Destruct by Liam Stephens because I thought it was the most Zugzwang of the Zugzwang problems. Self-Destruct is more difficult than it looks! I thought I had it playing against Checkersland Impossible from the contest diagram with:
27 23, 11-15, 31 26, 12-16, 26 22, 6-10, 13x6, but then 15-18, 22x15, 10x19x26 draw.
