The image is incorrect[edit]

The image of the board has too many diagonal lines. It should be like this: http://laire.dy.fi/t/Fanorona.svg. Jlaire (talk) 23:01, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

I haven't logged in in ages and I just saw a message to that effect from a different user. I will correct the image when I get a chance. (By the way, I blame Partlett since I was just using his book as a reference! :)--PilotPrecise (talk) 20:52, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
Actually, I just noticed that your Fanorona.jpg was correct and User:Mysid made a mistake when vectorizing it! You (or someone else) can just copy the version I linked to above, I made it by modifying the .svg-file. (I don't know how to go about replacing it and don't have time atm. :) Jlaire (talk) 21:06, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
Hi, I'm a newcomer, but I think I uploaded Jlaire's corrected graphic okay. Ihardlythinkso (talk) 14:28, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Different rules in French![edit]

The French Wikipedia has an article on Fanorona with different rules from the English. Personally, I like the French rules better. The French rules are the same, except that (1) capturing moves do _not_ have to be made over non-capturing ones, and (2) capturing involves taking _all_ stones in continuation before or behind the movement of the capturing stone, not just one of them. If you can read French, see the [1] reference on that page. 66.102.65.42 (talk) 01:50, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
