I don’t think I’m doing well.

Well there is no way to know if where we started either side was in a better position. But this could be interesting. This game doesn't have draws, so it might let us test the rule of no draws: "Repeating any position with the same order of move is prohibited. Thirty ordinary moves without any capture and promotion mean defeat."

I wonder it this might come into effect.meh.png

Harry is the h-pawn. He just died

Oh. Well, I'll be using that line soon!

I just double-checked the rules, and remembered this:

(rule 10) "The achievement of the eighth promotional row by the king brings the victory."

So black has a victory:
78.Kc3...Kh5
79....Kh4
80....Ki3 (Black wins)

This is a game where winning is possible without checkmate. An unusual ending.
Good game, and thanks for experimenting in the "special" game ending.
