Event #113 Double Weak Royalty

Type: Royal modifier, Royal queen

Condition: Can not be started with another royal modifier event. At least 1 queen for each player. At least 1 king for each player.

The queen moves like a king and can also perform castling. As long as a player controls both a king and a queen he can not be checked/checkmated, is allowed to leave his king/queen under attack and can castle ignoring check rules. The king can be captured like any other piece. When a player only have 1 in total of queens/kings combined, then the remaining king/queen can be checked/checkmated and normal castling rules apply.

When a queen castles with a rook it will move 2 squares sideways, just like the king. Pawns can promote to kings if the promoting player has no king. Pawns can promote to queens only if the promoting player has no queen.

Example 1:

Black is not in check since whites queen moves like a king.

Example 2:

Black is not in check since he has both a king and a queen.

Example 3:

White plays Kd7#

Whites move is legal since white has both a king and a queen and can therefor leave either (or both) in check. Black on the other hand has only a king and is therefor checkmated.

Example 4:

White can castle either kingside or queenside with his queen (notation Q-Q or Q-Q-Q)

Q-Q

Q-Q-Q

Example 5:

Here white can play 0-0. Since white has both a king and a queen he is allowed to leave his king in check and castle while being threatened or moving over a threatened square. Likewise, white is allowed to play Kxf2.
