I've written a little piece on Storisende strategy called Strategic fundamentals.

The winners of the BGG Best Combinatorial 2-Player Game 2018 are:

    1 Blooms and Hermetica (ex aequo) 12 points
    3 Storisende 11 points

Nick Bentley's Blooms has been extensively discussed at BGG and has been played quite a lot during that time. Hermetica has been marketed and is visually very attractive. It seems like a good game to me but I haven't played it.  
I feel these were rather strong competitors so I'm very happy to see Storisende following so closely. Smiley
 
I hadn't quite expected it because it's a game with an unusual strategic storyline that really takes some time to grasp.

I'm eternally grateful for all the work Ed did, completely voluntary, by creating mindsports to support my games. So with java applets going the way of the dinosaur I really thought it was just a matter of time before mindsports would follow suit. Of course I wasn't happy about it, but starting all over again in html5, I thought, would be a bit to much to ask. So although we discussed the possibility occasionally, I never asked.
 
That's why I was elated to hear him say "I've had it with java" and that he intends to rebuild the site in html5. I was quick to say that so far as I'm concerned 'the Pit' merely contains collateral damage and that only ArenA games would need the option of online play, and maybe not even all of them.
 
It's a lot of work nevertheless and for Ed it's a hobby in between a job and other hobbies, so it'll start when it starts and progress gradually. The first games will be the more simple ones, implementation wise, like Symple and Havannah. It's great to realise we're still alive!
