My Own Chess Variant-CAT Chess

  • #1

    I had created a chess variant,called CAT Chess, it uses the same board and same piece with some traps!CAT Chess stands for Chess of All Traps(CAT) Chess.

    The board has three types of chess and totally 12 traps.

    There is two ways to win, five ways to draw and two ways to lose.

    Win Way(Lose Way is vice versa)

    1.Checkmate the King then you wins

    2.Force Check to force King enter trap then you wins

    Draw Way

    1.Insufficient Material

    2.Stalemate

    3.Threefold Repetition

    4.50 move rule

    5.Forced Trap Entering(with some specialized conditions)

    6.Forced Zugzwang Trap Entering(refer blog)

    There are three types of trap, each type has 4 on the chess board.

    PS:The trap won't move away if your piece move.

    Red Trap-Located on Two Player's Rook Place.

    Yellow Trap-Located on Two Player's Knight Pawn Place.

    Green Trap-Located on Two Player's 2 more square upper on Bishops.

    Use of Traps:

    In normal conditions, if you can force King to enter traps, you win! But if you meet special conditions, it's a draw(refer Drawing Conditions No 5.Forced Trap Entering)

    For easier talk and prevent more no need typing, Checkmated Side(l) Checkmate Side(w)

    Red Trap- Within 10 moves after the castlesW force L to enter trap, draws.

    Yellow Trap and Green Trap doesn't force draw.

    I hope chess.com will add this!

    No shark-pack extensions? No lasers, phasers, and tazers? No taliban? No Mongolia? No "intellectual properties"? No word combinations that reminds one of hillbillies? How is anyone going to believe this "variant" has anything to do with chess, without any of the above?

    LoL, at least, taliban seem necessary, otherwise the life has no sense, especially for Americans.Laughing

    My idea of cat chess is Zoni walking on the keyboard while I'm trying to play. This sounds more like some marketing gimmick where you need to buy each trap separately for huge amounts of money and/or the board has bright, flashy ads on it.

    I have also decided to create a chess variant.

    So far I have the following pieces:

     

    Yigor - moves to and fro between two squares

    trysts - jumps on and off the board with smileys

    pdela - moves forward irresistibly one square every 100 moves

    tonydal - hovers above the board

    batgirl - travels back and forth in time

    uhohspaghettio - random, unpredictable movement all over the board

    ivandh- this piece does not move but is worshipped by the other pieces

     I wonder whether batgirl would like to accept such limited powers.Wink

    I thought CAT Chess looked something like this:

  • #17

    Aside from the actual variant he suggested, I think cosmofish's post was very clever; Think about it; if this didn't have "cat" in it's title, how many people do you think would have clicked?

  • #18

    What do the other traps do? and could you give the trap positions in algebraic notation? its kindof vague, to me
