from Talk:Rithmomachy (presumably relating to some prior incarnation of this page)[edit]

Is there a reason for removing this page? It is sometimes a real pain, finding good descriptions on the Internet. I thought the Link would be a good starting point to further evolve the topic.

In rules said that pieces could be returned to game after capture, like in Shogi. But it looks it doesn't mention in article178.122.26.72 (talk) 13:03, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

What is known about the rules of this game?

I think we have a pretty good idea of the rules. There is a transcript of a 16th century work about the game at http://jducoeur.org/game-hist/fulke.html. --Imran 00:15, 9 May 2004 (UTC)
I dunno. There are many different vague descriptions of the rules. I don't know which ones are the correct ones. O—— The Unknown Hitchhiker 18:23, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
It's possible that the original rules may never be deturmined. Remember, this game was around for centuries, and so it's only natural that rules would vary (note: it was an alteration in the rules of chess(queens moving in the modern fashon, rather than like a king), that led to Rithmomachia's loss of popularity). Maybe someone should get down their own interpretation of the rules, like i am planning to do. Does anybody know if there is a computerised version of this game? If not, I'll make one myself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ratstail91 (talkcontribs) 00:07, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

I think that the picture of the board needs replacing. the layout is good any everything, but there needs to be a morre technical diagram of the positions. --Ratstail91 (talk) 00:40, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

The peices seem to be out of place. I've seen pictures of boards set up with the peices 2 places closer to the middle of the board. --Ratstail91 (talk) 03:04, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Inconsistency in section "capturing"[edit]

The statement "If a piece is captured, it changes sides." that agrees with the source does not fit to the description of "Meeting" and and "Ambuscade" where pieces are removed from the board. --mfb (talk) 22:13, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Lots of info in German wiki[edit]

The Germans seem to have some extra knowledge to the game and its rules. Maybe someone with language skills could put up and excerpt? Google translate gives a start but maybe a native speaker would do better. --94.223.160.154 (talk) 10:51, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
