    And there I was, thinking for sure that "Code Geass" had to be a typo...

    Nope! It just took 2 years for the topic to catch on, apparently.

    Well, when Schnizel offers up his king for sacrifice, you guys have to remember that this entire series has taken an alternate course of events. Chess itself could have evolved differently as well, meaning that the goal of the game itself is to capture the king, not just checkmate it alone.

    You also have the game with Mao in the first season, the second episode where he comes back and takes Nunnally hostage, you will barely see it but RIGHT after Lelouch loses, you can catch a glimpse of Mao throwing the black king onto the pedistle.

    I conclude that chess may have evolved into a capture of the kings due to the fact that when the British Empire changed capitals to the Americas, it represented a lot of political strife and conflict in the noble classes clawing for the chance to be King/Emperor. Charles zi Britannia says it himself in the second season that there was constant battle between his siblings for the throne. With their Social Dawrwinistic approach, the Britannians may have over time altered the way the game is played.

    However, the whole "king faceoff" is all symbolism.

    Just my two cents. I would LOVE to see a strategy built around using the king as a central attacking peice just like the way Lelouch plays however.
