Event #6 Starvation

Condition: None

After each move, the piece that moved will be removed from the board unless one of the following conditions are met:

1. The moved piece was a pawn

2. The piece moved from a square adjacent to a pawn

3. The piece moved to a square adjacent to a pawn

4. The move captured a pawn.

When a player performs castling, only the piece that moved first (king) gets affected by this event.

If a move would cause a royal piece (king) to get removed, then it is treated the same as putting that piece into check (not allowed).

If a player is stalemated and there are no pawns next to his royal piece, that player looses the game instead of the game ending in a draw.

The marked green squares indicate the squares adjacent to the pawn.

 

Example 1:

White plays e4. Since it was a pawn that moved, the pawn survives.

 

Example 2:

White plays e8=Q. Since it was a pawn that moved, the new queen survives.

 

Example 3:

White plays Ne5. Since the knight moved from a square next to a pawn, the knight survives.

 

Example 4:

White plays Ne5. Since the knight moved to a square next to a pawn, the knight survives.

 

Example 5:

White plays Nxe5. Since the knight captured a pawn, the knight survives.

 

Example 6:

White plays Ne5, Since none of the conditions are met the knight is removed from the board.

 

Example 7:

White plays Nxe5. Since none of the conditions are met, the knight is removed from the board.

 

Example 8:

White can play 0-0 or 0-0-0. Even if white plays 0-0-0, whites rook will survive, since only the king is affected by this event when castling.

 

Example 9:

White is checkmated. White can't play Kd1, Kxd2 or Ke2 since the king would get removed (same as putting itself into check).

 

Example 10:

White is stalemated. But, since he does not have any pawns next to his king, black wins!
