Event #7 Revival

This is an event that is part of a variant called event chess. More about event chess can be read here.


Event #7 Revival

Each player may once/game 'revive' a piece. To revive you take a piece that the opponent has captured and put it on an empty square as a move (like in bughouse chess). Pawns may not be put on the first or last rank. If a promoted pawn gets captured it only counts as a pawn the opponent can revive.




In this position black has captured a pawn, knight and a rook. If white had already used a revive this game, then he would be unable to revive another piece. However if he has not used it yet, then he can play R@h8#


As an alternative he could also play N@h6#


However he would not be able to play Q@g7# since black has not captured the white queen.
