# Bulldog Chess with Witch and Guard (Benjibass-Bad_Dobby_Fischer)

Ok, well you can run outta time if ya want NP...Deal.

NO

I GET TIME PAUSED FOR RULE QUESTIONS

You can not get time paused, time keeps running, it is an experienced player responsibility to 2 know the rules...

that's not correct

there have been n=many cases of rule debates

Umm, pls, if you are so sure about the rules, then lets bet....

i am NOT sure

thats my opinion

i am waiting for martin to explain

and you have not told me what you disagree with

Moving a rook from a1 to c1 is moving two squares.

Moving a Witch from h6 to j6 is moving two squares.  Moving the Witch from h6 to h8 would be jumping two squares, since it's jumping over a pawn that's in the way.  You're jumping two squares.  You're not jumping over two squares.  When a rook moves two squares, there's only one square between it and where it started.  Same with jumping two squares.  Like how a knight jumps two squares forward and one square sideways.  The square that it jumps over and the one it jumps onto are both counted.

This has been a consistent rule (I lost a game once because I didn't know this rule, I thought all adjacent pieces were transparent to the Witch, and so she could move straight through the pieces adjacent to her).

Hope that made sense!   I sometimes over-think explanations.  But yeah, Benji and ry are right.

Rating points is not a resource that can be spent or gambled with. Fixing game results in any way that is not a natural part of the game (like betting) is not allowed either and may result in a double forfeit.

The time is stopped when asking rule questions.

@JohnHS is correct with his explanation, the move is not legal.

ok, time unpaused...

then what is jumping one square?

then what is jumping one square?

benji, answer too, since you dont agree

There is no jumping 1 square, either jumping 2 or moving 1

I disagree with you.... But i agree with the rules.

There's no point in saying jumping 1 square, since then it is the same distance as the king movement and you're not moving over any squares. People usually does not call the king a jumper, despite the fact that it share the feature of a knight that it can only be blocked on the destination square.
