This thread is for game 2 of "Chess on an Infinite Plane" between Silvertruck 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)
Silvertruck plays White. Good luck!
Silvertruck, glad you showed up.Just to make sure, were playing with 3 day move limit, right? (see correspondence rules here).My move:1...N(6,6)
silvertruck, are you still playing?
OK, it's been 7 days since silvertruck moved, and I've sent a 1 day warning here and by PM. No reply, so silvertruck is a "No-show". I'll take the win.
