Event #7 Revival

Condition: None

Each player may once/game 'revive' a piece. You can revive any of the pieces you have fewer of than what you started with (for example if you have less than 1 queen you can revive a queen and if you have less than 2 knights you can revive a knight)

To revive you put the revived piece on an empty square as a move (like in bughouse chess). Pawns may not be put on the first or last rank.


Note: It is the missing pieces that matters and not captured pieces. If you lose your queen and then promote a pawn to a queen, then you can not revive a queen since you do not have fewer queens than you started the game with.



In this position black is missing 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 white still has a queen on the board.
