Hi smurfisme, can you wait about one week before we start?

I'm already in four games, and three are just starting. But after a few days (when they are closer to a middle-game) I think will have time.

I'll send a message to you early in June, ok?

Hi smurfisme, I could handle another game right now so you could play against me. But I like a time control of 3 days, because in my experience some opponents simply forget the ongoing game while I keep checking where it's my move.

You guys should play each other. I'll even help by starting a thread and posting the rules.

Just let me know if you'd like to play exactly the same as this game "Bulldog chess + angel + joker" or a simpler version.

 

A "normal" version could include 2 guards each and 2 or 4 bulldogs where the pawns go like in this game: (sample game). We used siege towers instead of bulldogs (same piece) and the game went to 104 moves!!

This game was really enjoyable to read, until this move, at which point it became painful.

How on earth do you miss Qd8+ followed by Bc6+?

After that I thought you were going to lose haha.

 

I would like to play a game of this, anyone capable of board updates want to play me?

Technically rooks actually represent siege towers... must be kinda awkward for them... see "why is the rook so short"

I don't remember - this was more than half a year ago. Your play does look better. Maybe I was being too meticulous and going after only a single pawn, when harassing the opponent with strong and useful checks would have been much better. I do remember that the game had a strong sense of tension during almost it's entire play. The joker and angels are pieces which probably should be played more often.happy.png

"Your play does look better. "

 

Yeah, wins the enemy queen outright and clears the way for the pawn to promote. Two queens won essentially.


it was amusing, I was viewing the game slowly, considering options before seeing what was played. I saw Qd8+ immediately and thought "yeah vick has this right here". When it wasn't played, I couldn't decide if I wanted you to win or lose!
