This variation was created on May 26, 2018 in Paris by French Abalone player Olivier Charles-Joseph, best known online as OCJ.
The name was given by Frédéric Garnier.
As you can see it is a balanced variation 😎

Total respect!

“Ce n’était pas un mage
Mais un sage poète
Qui m’a délivré ce message :
RESPECT!”*

* It wasn’t a mage
But a wise poet
who delivered to me this message:
RESPECT!

Happy new year 2019!

I wish you all to have exciting and successful projects!

For the players always looking for better results, take courage: the way that leads to victory will be full of pitfalls!

But remember, enjoy yourselves! Because when it comes to games, having fun is more important than winning (^_-)—☆

Good games to all! (:
