This thread is the Semi-final game of "Chess on an Infinite Plane" between friedmelon and vickalan.
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.
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)
Friedmelon plays White.
friedmelon, your queen can't go to (0,4). Will you name a legal move?
freidmelon, are you still playing? Please move soon or this will be a no-show.
Friedmelon, you're playing White. Your queen can't go to (4,9).
Whoa!! Long move!!😨Far pieces will be shown with a note.
3.Q(5,999)+...B(5,9)Diagram illustrating moves and location of White's queen (not to scale):
lol. that is the weird part of Chess on INFINITE plane.
Yes, Black (me) is playing normal moves trying to gain control of the center with pawns. In the meantime (White) is making a bold flank attack by checking my king from the unprotected back side. Now I have a strangely placed (and pinned) bishop.
But where did @friedmelon go? If friedmelon doesn't make a move within a day I'll call this as a no-show.
pawj 4,2 to 4,3
