Event Chess Game (Bad_Dobby_Fischer - rychessmaster1) #2

This is an event chess game between @Bad_Dobby_Fischer and @rychessmaster1.

Game rules:

Game starts like a normal chess game with 2 additional rules:

1. Each player may once/game start an event during his turn before making a move (Just say "start event").
2. A player may not capture more than 2 pieces that are not pawns before starting an event (This is to make sure both players need to start an event).

Note that each player starting one event means a game will become a combination of 2 events.

Other rules of this game are identical with rules of classical chess.

When an event starts it will be chosen randomly from over 100 events and consists of some sort of rule changes to the game. More about event chess can be read here.

@Bad_Dobby_Fischer will play white. Good luck!

Event #105 Direction Limited Queens

First the player that started the event choose one of either:

Forward, Backward, Diagonal Forward, Diagonal Backward, Sideways

Then the other player chooses a different option.

Queens can not move in the directions chosen.

Example 1:

The chosen directions are forward and diagonal backward. Queens can not move in those directions.

Example 2:

The chosen directions are backwards and diagonal backwards. Queens can not move in those directions.

@rychessmaster1 will choose a direction first. Then @Bad_Dobby_Fischer chooses a different direction. Then @rychessmaster1 makes his move and the game continues.

But if sideways includes right AND left, and diagonal backwards and diagonal forwards includes both diagonal forward/backward right AND left, then shouldn't the fourth direction also have two directions? (Forward AND backward.) Or, maybe there should be a right, left, diagonal forward right, etc.

Nah, it is fine with some choices being 1 direction and others being 2. Some people (like me) would get confused with keeping track of right and left. "Whites left is Blacks right? What sorcery is this?"

but...Whites up is Blacks down? What sorcery is this?

lol ok, never mind

i'm still thinking about my direction.

backward would make queens bishops, and diagonal forward would make queens useless

but that might be fun...

Backwards would still allow queens to move sideways, so queens would still be a bit better than bishops. You are right about diagonal forward though
