A fair-komi game
can be started as an even game without handicap stones by an invitation
or by creating a new fair-komi game offer in the waiting room
Fair-komi games are not supported for multi-player-games
or for Dragon Tournaments.
For a fair-komi game you must choose from one the four fair-komi handicap-types
and choose from one of the options for "Jigo-Check
". The other game-settings are described in How to add a game offer in the waiting room
and are not repeated here.
The options for Jigo-Check
influence the checks on the komi bids during the komi negotation phase
for fair-komi games:
- No Jigo restrictions: the komi bids can increase by 0.5 point steps.
- Enforce Jigo: the komi bids can only be whole numbers (no fractional part thereby allowing Jigo).
- Forbid Jigo: the komi bids must be fractional always ending with a .5 to prevent a Jigo.
When your game offer is accepted, the fair-komi game starts with the komi negotiation phase
. From this point on forward, the game clocks are running. The game page (and game-info page
) show instructions how to do the bidding on komi (or to choose the playing color).
Finally here's a hint: If you are undecided how to do your komi bids, you should ask yourself: "Would I rather play White or Black with this komi?"
