musketeer chess (brainking2016 vickalan)

This thread is for another game of Musketeer Chess between brainking2016 and me.

Would you like to play white or black?

Archbishop - OK great!  I'll choose the Chancellor. Now we have the same two new pieces in Capablanca chess but we are only on an 8 x 8 board. (Capablanca chess uses an 8 x 10 board). We have a lot of powerful pieces in a small area! So here is the board with the two pairs of new pieces (not positioned yet). Now I think you decide where to gate the Archbishop, correct? Then I decide where to gate mine - then we do the same for the Chancellors. (Let me know if I'm not doing this correct).

We already gated our Archbishops.

Do you mean Chancellor in d0?

vickalan

Chancellor to d6? The Chancellor is not even gated yet so can't jump to d6, right?

Maybe Chancellor to d0? Probably that's what brainking means but I better wait until he says for sure. This game could be dangerous. Any little typo can lead to defeat!!

Gentlemen! Maybe anybody want to play a chess variant with Archbishop in place of Ng1 (Ng8) and Chancellor in place of Rh1 (Rh8)?

Hi Ivan, I'm currently in four games so I'm afraid to start a new one. But two games have strong pieces (Ch and A, and Ch and hawk) and they might not take long (I heard game can be fast due to strong power of pieces).
So after one of my games finishes I'll contact you and I hope we can playhappy.png

O.K. I'll take your word for it. We can also add Elephant at b2,g2 (b7,g7) in Musketeer's terms.

What can you say against the thesis: Archbishop c0, Chancellor b1 is the best debut?
