there's 2 players on each board, so it's always even

No if you take a piece who do you give it to?

Triple bughouse is called motherboard, here's how it works. The same color on either side, different color in the middle. When the one in the middle gets a piece, they can hold on to it until one person needs it.

I've heard that quadruple is called fatherboard and quintuple is called grandpaboard(I'm not making this up) but I don't know how they work. Motherboard would be cool though.

The team would decide who should get the piece based on the positions. That's what makes it interesting

Thanks! That helped me a lot!

IF the winner is still the first board to checkmate, it shouldn't take much time if any team member can give you the piece (often Knights early on) that slay your opponent.  With two players per team you have to have a better eye for what piece(s) you need to complete a tactic.

Imagine if all captured pieces ended up on 1 board, and every square was occupied lol!

• #11

OP, I'm surprised that you stopped short of sextuple.  What is the greatest tuple of all?

• #12

Bughouse should have 100 boards.

I don't think my sanity could take it.
