If we're to abolish stalemate...

    Why not remove other contradictory rules...

     

    My proposals:

     

    1. Chess is war , so there is no way that there is no improvements of technical nature. From now on  bishops shall become rockets. After pressing the

    " button " in three moves needed for launching sequence, white bishop can strike any square on the board.  Black squared bishop , can be put on "ready" in order to shoot down enemy incoming rockets.

    Queens shall become carriers , with ability to launch pawns against enemy ...

    airborne cavalry (horsies) shall be deployed from rooks.

     

    2. One should abolish that stupid rule that someone has to move first. How is that possible , that one must be forced to reveal his tactics against his will? From now on , how starts is to be determined by a players agreement , including conditional clauses ( i.e. I move first but than get a beer for one who is moving second).

     

    3. Also , the outcome of the game is to be changed . No more checkmates, the one who wins is the first to earn 30 frags. Also the "king of the hill" , and "capture the flag" variants shall be included.

    4. NO MORE STALEMATES

     

    Only than chess will become the most popular game ever .

    If you abolish stalemates, then if you get the other king in a position where he cannot move, and it is his turn to move, allow the clock to keep running and then he would lose because he ran out of time to make a move.

    The king and his men are under siege like it happen during the middle ages. When they ran out of food and water the king would give up.

    It is kind of neat to get someone in stalemate on purpose. I was wondering when someone would respond to this. I didn't think it would be me. Great idea. It eliminates ties.

    Why are there so many discussions on this forum about stuff that's never going to happen?  We can make all the threads we want about stalemates needing to be abolished, but they never will.  Also, cheaters and rude people are pretty much never going to go anywhere, either. Undecided

    In fact whenever a losing position is encountered for any reason at all just stop and run the clock down. Maybe even disconnect. Oh no, hang on...

    In laser shark chess there are no draws.

    Why does chess have to be turn-based?  Why not just have both sides make moves at the same time, or as many possible moves as they can as fast as they can?  Or why can't the pieces move to any square on the board and capture any other piece?  This is how my 5 year old nephew likes to play when he gets bored with regular chess.

    Nuclear chess... cool.

    Actually, I think there is a variation called nuclear chess.  When you capture an opponent's piece, you also capture all pieces (his and yours) in the surrounding 8 squares.

    That's really bad play. Black should have set the defensive bishop on "ready" to Block White's plan!
