@Daniel: on the GC page for Skica, there is no link to send to this Skica page here. The word "Skica" under the diagram is not active a as link.

Also this GC page has (in its bottom) a link to a Skical preset, but this link goes to 404 Error.

I have a game on-going. My opponent had misunderstood the moves of the Ski-pieces. He thought that these pieces must hop a piece in the first square to move, which could be a wrong interpretation of "but always hops over the first square". He had not realised that they may cross an empty first square. Maybe you could be more specific in the text.

I like this game.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
