Event Chess Game (FromAlphaToOmega - Waredude)

Martin0

This is an event chess game between @FromAlphaToOmega and @Waredude.

 

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.

 

@FromAlphaToOmega will play white. Good luck!

You might want to hold off until my event starts.

You both need to hold off tongue.png

When starting an event you must do it during your turn before making a move.

@FromAlphaToOmega, you can start your event and then after learning the new rules you can decide if you want to play Nf3. Before knowing the new rules you can't even tell if Nf3 is a legal move.

So do you want to start an event before playing your second move?

FromAlphaToOmega

Alright, my bad. Yes, I would like to start the event.

Waredude
Sorry.

Event #73 Cooperation

A piece standing orthogonal next to* an allied piece gains support from that piece.

The pieces involved can't be kings or pawns (only rooks, knights, bishops and queens).

 

A piece that gains support from another piece can make any move that the supporting piece could make. However it does not gain movement that the supporting piece gained from another support.

 

*Note: Orthogonal next to is basically king movement away, but not along diagonals. So e4 and d4 are orthogonal next to each other, but e4 and d5 are not.

Example 1:

Whites knight is standing orthogonal next to the bishop, so the knight gains support from the bishop and can move as either a bishop or knight.

Likewise, whites bishop gains support from the knight, so it can move as either a bishop or knight.

Example 2:

Just as the first example, the knight gains support from the bishop and can move as a bishop or knight.

The bishop though gains support from both a rook and a knight, so the bishop can move as either a rook, knight or bishop.

The rook gains support from the bishop and can move as either a bishop or rook.

Note that the rook and knight are not standing orthogonal next to each other, so they do not support each other. Also the rook does not gain the movement of the knight, despite the bishop being able to move as a knight since the bishop can only move that way through support.

Example 3:

Kings and pawns can not support other pieces or be supported, so the supports are the same as in the second example. Knight gains support from bishop. Bishop gainst support from knight and rook. Rook gains support from bishop.

Are the new rules clear? Feel free to ask questions.

And it's totally fine to make mistakes @Waredude, no worries.

FromAlphaToOmega

Nf3, still.

 

Board please?

Event #123 Forward Activity
All pieces can move a maximum of the same amount of squares as the rank they are standing on. 

Pieces on first rank can move 1 square, second rank 2 squares and so on. From blacks perspective, pieces on the 8th rank can move 1 square, 7th rank 2 squares and so on. The exceptions are knight movement (jumpers) and castling which can be made as normal.

 

Special note: With the combination of the Cooperation event only the position of the piece moving will count towards the maximum number of squares the piece can move to. It does not matter what rank a supporting piece is standing on.

Example 1:

null

Whites queen is able to move a maximum of 1 square. Blacks queen can move a maximum of 2 squares.

Example 2:

null

Whites rook can move a maximum of 3 squares. Blacks rook can move a maximum of 4 squares.

 

Special example:

null

The knight gains support from the queen and can move a maximum of 2 squares.

null

The queen gains support from the knight and can move a maximal of 1 square. Since knight movement does not care about the maximum amount of square a piece can move, the queen can still move as a knight.

Nc6 wow. Tricky event. Thanks WC!
FromAlphaToOmega

Quick question: Is castling still allowed?

Waredude
Yes. He said that already
FromAlphaToOmega

Alright. Didn't notice that.
