    Spin the bottle chess: if you lose a piece you must kiss the nearest person.  And if a fight breaks out, you lose!

    If the knight makes it to the back line it becomes a rook whether the player likes it or not! ;)

    If you put  your oponient in check and you can't mate within 3 moves, you must exchange your queen for 2 pawns.

    I sometimes wish that pawns could capture a chess piece that lands on a square right behind them, on the diagonals (either left or right).

    Both players must balance an egg on their head, whoever's egg falls and breaks, loses.

    If you have a pinned piece, you must replace it with a pawn. If it is a pawn that is pinned, it is replaced with a queen.

    Squarely

    Both players are connected to bio-monitoring devices (EEG, EKG, Heart and Breathing rate, Galvanic Skin response, Blood Sugar and Hydration Levels).  At higher ratings, the urge to urinate and vascular constriction (fight or flight response) are also measured.  The twist is, you can see your opponent's read-outs and he can see yours, but neither can see his own.  Negative points are awarded to the losing player upon achieving an uncontrolable rage with veins popping on the neck with a bright red face as he throws the chess board across the room as he storms off muttering under his breath about how everybody is an idiot.

    Two people talk about "Star Wars" and argue right next to the game, the first to correct them when they say "Luke I'm not your father" loses.

    You play with only queen and pawns and the first person to lose all the pieces wins. You must capture a queen when possible and if you cant then you have to capture a pawn and if you cant capture any piece you can do anyrthing

    The position is set up like this:
