Each player plays two moves in a row. The stones must have a keima (knight’s move) distance (see picture). The first move must be valid on its own, suicide is not allowed. The regular ko rule doesn’t apply. If both moves of a player have captured a ko, the opponent is not allowed to take both ko. At the end of the game, all stones remaining on the board are alive. Points are counted under Chinese rules. Intersections count as territory, if they are surrounded on all sides by stones from one color or the boundary of the board. Komi and handicap will be published on-site.
