Gliraktik: Computerized strategy-game developed
on Alleman (3137 Vland) around 1800. Due to the collapse of the Rule
of Man and the ensuing Long Night, the game never spread very fast.
Even to this day, Gliraktik is almost unknown outside the sectors
Vland, Lishun, Dagudashaag and Core. The extreme difficulty of the game
has probably been another determining factor to it's lack of widespread
Gliraktik is one of the few games where even a TL 15 starship
computer can't beat a sentient being. The game seems to require a level
of intuition for the rules and situations where a non-sentient computer
isn't capable of playing.
Gliraktik games can continue on almost indefinitely with
two equal opponents. Players often take days to make their move. -cam
