In game 33699 I want to move one of my knights. I could place a new one, as I still have a knight available. But I would rather move a knight, to free the space for another player to move their knight. The game doesn't let me do this. The only option it gives me is to place my available knight.
According to my copy of the rules, a player is free to choose if they want to place a new knight or move a knight on the board.
Sigh... I implemented it in this way because I couldn't imagine a case where a player would prefer moving a knight rather than placing a new one, and it must be a rare case indeed because you are the first to complain after 900 games played :(.
You are right, it should be considered a bug and it should be fixed, but I had a quick look at the code and changing it now is not trivial, so it could take a few days before I find the time. Sorry about your current game, I'm afraid you will have to place your last knight.
It is probably a rare case; I've only played a few games of ItSotE, so I wouldn't know how often this comes up. In this case it's the difference between having a shot at a shared victory, and, well, not. So thanks for looking at it!
Oh and don't worry about my current game :) I'm gonna place that knight now.
