'No Jarnac' - what's the point

Hello

Just started trying this.

Most of the games on BaJ are played with the 'no Jarnac' option selected.

As far as I can see, this removes any interaction between the players. It may as well be a solitaire game.

Am I missing something?

Thanks, Chris.

Hi !
Actually there is only a minority of games with this option (but a majority of unjoined games with it)
The option is here for a group of players who want to play friendly games, without "agressive" actions.
But you are right, it removes all the interaction.

You can also note that the optimal strategy with this option is to pass the ~10 first moves, then start to play, but none of the players who like this option do that, it's more casual play.

It's really interesting, nevertheless are you sure? :)

Le jeu " sans jarnac " n'a rien de solitaire car le but est de vaincre son adversaire. Il demande en outre une certaine stratégie pour placer judicieusement ses lettres lorsqu'on décide d'en garder en réserve. Il permet également de jouer avec des plus forts que soi en ayant une petite chance de gagner lorsqu'on est souvent victime de coups de jarnac. Personnellement j'aime tous les modes de jeu. Vive la variété ! :bieremetal:
