Cant wait... whos up for a buckhouse match !
It's called bughouse
what is buckhouse??
Buckhouse. Is that the Canadian version of bughouse, where everyone gets to see a doctor but the booze is way over taxed?
@cjt33 it's usually only IRL, and it's where two games are played beside eachother with opposite-facing boards and when one person captures a piece, they give it to the person next to them and that person can put the piece wherever they want on the board. The only rules about where you can put it are no pawns on the 1st or 8th ranks and no placing pieces on top of other pieces. Any questions? :P
ohhhhh.... you mean multipiesas (spanish) thanks
Are you sure its " Bughouse"
It could be buckhouse somewhere, a regional thing like coke/soda/pop. Here we call it Verrücktschlachthof.
how would bug house work over the internet? you need a partner and how would you pass the pieces to you partner?
the pieces will automatically go to the other player and you would choose your partner
yeah its realy cool.
bunkhouse is a riot.
But at least in Canada you can fire up a number and fuss about it while you're macrameing your behind into the davenport.....
The Hubby informs me that the bughouse variant is actually quite old. It was apparently well-established by the time Lewis Carroll wrote "Through the Looking Glass," and based on Carroll's own notes Alice's adventure here is a description of a game in progress. I have also heard that the first recorded bughouse-like game dates from the 12th century. Any of the FM/IM crowd want to weigh in on this?
Its Bughouse, not Buckhouse.
Heres a link to a wikipedia about it.
oh yeah sorry... are you exited ?
Nope, still here.........
(btw, I think the word you're looking for is actually "excited...")
idk about 12th century, but im not suprised it is old, after all shogi is essentially one board transfer chess, and its quite old.
