Although it IS an illegal move to put a king in check, this was purely symbolic.Schneizel wanted to see if Lelouch would grab a victory that's handed to him for free by moving his king right in front of Lelouch's. However, Lelouch moves his king back because he thinks there's no honor in winning by the resigning of your opponent.
I'd have to agree with him, I would do the same (not that this situation would ever occur in real life).
Yeah i believe it was.. schneizel wants to undermine lelouch true identity... but lelouch in return wouldn't grab the victory thing.. cause its a trap.. rather he put jis king behind his pawn..another character trait of lelouch showing he relies so cowardly at the back of his subordinates.. just like on the movie it self..on the otherhand schneizel's move also represents his personality.. a person in authority showing no mercy in the face of his enemies and kind and considerate toward his subordinates..the ultimate opposite of lelouch... lelouch on the otherhand would so willingly sacrifice his pawns and minor pieces just to win the game or war... that shows their true characters.. im an avid fan of codegeass.. i know the story so much...infact thru codegeass i begun to study & learn and play chess..way before i hate it..but now im so addicted playing this so cool game.. all because of codegeass.. turning 4years already playing the game...yey!! ^_^
Hmm, a forum all about the chess moves I make? Interesting...
lol jk I just named my account in honor of the chess prodigy; just thought I'd post here since ya'll like Code Geass too.
When Lelouch plays against Scneizel, they put their Kings infront of each other. I'm pretty sure that happened. Can anyone verify that.
Yep that happened and he said checkmate, and then everyone thought Lelouch could simply capture the king and win, but it was too humiliating so he retreated his king.
Anime is the reason I started chess. It's a lame reason I know... :p which is why chess bores me to death meow :3
Check out Aldnoah Zero.
That is one of the weirdest setups I think I've ever seen. Thanks so much for posting the actual game though, very cool!
I actually encountered a remarkably similar position in one of my own games recently. The position arose from a Slav defense where black decided not to castle. I have included my rationale for the moves at the end of the puzzle. I believe it to be correct, but please let me know if you disagree. Enjoy!
note: the first move I have coded as "correct" in the puzzle could theoretically be played as the second move, but I have coded it this way for stylistic flair. just ask "What would Lelouch do?"
