Introduction to DDG News


"Publishing an on-line DDG magazine 2-3 times a year", proclaimed the first DDG News issue in 1999. "1-2 times a year", corrected the second issue after a year. Now that this third issue over 3 (!) years to finish, I have to loosen even more:

DDG News are published whenever there is enough material -- and the editor has free time (-:

This issue covers what has happened in the DDG world since 2000. The DDG has got some publicity, but, unfortunately, I have seen very few games being played, and not a single thematic tournament.

Due to lack of good enough games, this issue mainly contains ideas, both new and rediscovered, for the DDG.
