I would say - try to solve as more as possible combinations.
Start with the miniatures.
Try to find solution in mind without touching pieces.
Even if you don't find and have to look to the solution - try to imagine the final position and check it later by making moves on board.

Sometime the elections give an extra impulse.
Draughts needs it dramatically. Also in France.
Maybe after some years the problem you rised <a href=http://fmjd.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=40> here </a> will be resolved as well [img]images/smilies/icon_smile.gif[/img]

The individualism of the game

Is the default individualism of our game forms the problem of draughts (and other individual sports)? I mean, the football or hockey players are used to some clear statements: - you cannot do everything alone; - you have to rely to other people; - you have to find a way to build or keep relationship...

Please, first suggestion needed.

1) Is the forum on the FMJD site is useful? It is still the official organisation. And some flame is always present on any forum. Or it should be moderated.
2) What should be the structure of the Forum
a) categories
b) forums
