This thread is the Championship Game of "Chess on an Infinite Plane" between @SuperSam1 and @vickalan. The rules of correspondence play will be strictly enforced.
Black and White each have the following pieces (quantity and name):1 king1 queen2 chancellors2 rooks2 bishops2 knights2 guards2 hawks24 pawns
All pieces move as in classical chess, with the "extra" three pieces moving as follows:
Chancellor (C) - Moves and captures as rook + knight.
Hawk (H) - Leaps exactly 2 or 3 squares in any orthogonal or diagonal direction. The leaping move means it can jump over other pieces.
Guard (G) - Moves and captures the same as a king but is not affected by check.
Pawns play the same and promote at the same rank as in classical chess. White pawns promote at rank 8, and black pawns promote at rank 1. Pawns can promote to chancellor, hawk, or guard in addition to queen, rook, bishop, or knight. Pawns may capture and be captured en passant with the same rules as in classical chess. Promotions are unlimited (not restricted to pieces that have been captured).
Board Setup:A red bracket indicates the a1 (1,1) square.
There is no castling.
There is no fifty-move rule. Draws can only occur from stalemate, threefold repetition, agreement, or a proven case of insufficient material to force checkmate.
All other rules are the same as in classical chess.
Move Notation:Numeric coordinates are used to identify piece locations as (file#, rank#). Parenthesis are used around each coordinate. Three examples of a move notation:1) A rook moving from (8,4) to (1,4): R(8,4)-(1,4) or R(1,4)2) A rook moving from (1,4) and capturing a piece on (0,4): R(1,4)x(0,4) or Rx(0,4)3) A pawn advancing from (-1,7) to (-1,6): (-1,7)-(-1,6) or (-1,6)
SuperSam1 plays White. Good luck to both players!
Sorry guys. Being busy for half a month while reading a series of books and had some time to watch
Hey friedmelon, what books were you reading?
The book you were reading must have been good because you just disappeared from a game (so lost the game). But we're glad you came back to watch.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!
Hi SuperSam1 and hitthepin! Happy new year to you guys too. I'm a little tired now, so will probably play my move early tomorrow. Hope we have many good games in 2018!😊
