Chess on an Infinite Plane (hitthepin - Bad_Dobby_Fischer)

nullThis is a game of "Chess on an Infinite Plane" between @hitthepin and @Bad_Dobby_Fischer.

Rules:

The Pieces:

Black and White each have the following pieces (quantity and name):
1 king
1 queen
2 chancellors
2 rooks
2 bishops
2 knights
2 guards
2 hawks
24 pawns

All pieces move as in classical chess, with the "extra" three pieces moving as follows:

Chancellor (C) - Moves and captures as rook + knight.

null

Hawk (H) - Leaps exactly 2 or 3 squares in any orthogonal or diagonal direction. The leaping move means it can jump over other pieces.

null

Guard (G) - Moves and captures the same as a king but is not affected by check.

null

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.

Board Setup:
null
Orange brackets identify the four "classical" corner squares (1,1), (1,8), (8,1), and (8,8).

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 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)

hitthepin plays White. Good luck to both players!happy.png

No problem - I like watching as much as playing.

The blue lines just help you keep track of the 1st and 8th ranks - even in this game that is where pawns promote.happy.png

Always specify file before rank: (file, rank). For people who use mathematical graphs it's the same as (x,y) coordinates.

hitthepin, to stay on the diagonal your queen can move to (-4,-7) or (-5,-8). Let me know which one you intend. Here is the board after Bad_Dobby's move:
3.N(3,3)...(4,5)
