Chess with Different Armies: The Meticulous Mashers
The theme of this army is that every piece very nearly matches the
corresponding piece from FIDE-chess, both in value and in general
The List of Pieces
The Opening Lineup
The initial disposition of this army has
the FR4 on a1 and h1, fbNF on b1 and g1, B4nD on c1 and f1, and
of course the N2R4 on d1.
The Meticulous Mashers were designed for
Chess with Different Armies in April 1997.
Observations About Meticulous Mashers
The opening move 1. (N2R4)d1-e3 threatens 2. (N2R4)e3-c4+ and then
3. (N2R4)c4:a8; in fact, only the Nutty Knights have trouble with
this threat (this is because 2. (N2R4)e3:g7 mate is also a threat),
and they can easily trap the N2R4 at a8, with a big advantage.
