Event #58 Princess

Both players chooses one of their pawns and keep the chosen pawn hidden to his opponent. Whenever a players last queen becomes captured the player that lost their queen reveals their chosen pawn and replaces that pawn with a queen.

If replacing the pawn with a queen would cause the player that moved to be in check, then the move must be taken back and a different move (with any piece) be made.

 

Example 1:

 

null

White choose the f2 pawn. Black choose the f7 pawn. White plays Qxa1. Since black has a queen left (not his last queen) nothing special happens.

 

null

Black plays Rxa1. Since he captured whites last queen, white reveals that he choose the f2 pawn and replaces it with a queen.

 

null

White plays Qxf7+. Nothing special happens, black does not need to reveal that his chosen pawn got captured. It just means that black will not have a pawn to replace with a queen after he looses his last queen.

 

Example 2:

 

null

White choose the pawn a2. Black choose the pawn d7. Black plays Rxh7. White reveals that his chosen pawn was a2. Since replacing that pawn with a queen would cause black to be in check Rxh7 is an illegal move and a different move must be made. Black plays Ke8.

 

null

White plays Qf7#

 

null

Since capturing the queen with Kxf7 would cause black to be in check by the new queen on a2 black has no legal moves. He is checkmated.
