Hi,
The "making a bridge" rule states that :

Quote:
You may use a piece to bridge a gap. The
straight and the angular pieces each have 2
clearly defi ned ends. If the dots at the ends of
such a piece are placed on 2 different pieces,
it can be used as a bridge since the dot in the
middle does not need to be supported to give
the piece a stable position.


My question is about the stability when using angular bridges.
If you make an angular bridge, then build bridges on other bridges, then build angular bridgers on other bridges (....), while respecting the rules, this seems pretty unstable to me.
For this reason, I have seen people playing (offline) with only straight bridges.

Any thoughts on that ?
Thanks,

It's unfortunate, but I don't think the use of "stable" is meant to prevent some of these physically "unstable" possibilities.

Thanks for answering !

Do you think that it can have an impact on the game, or are unstable positions theoretically possible but never happen ?
