Jens Baek Nielsen's program Dabbaba plays chess and several variants
of chess. One of these variants is described here: Rooksquare Chess.
The game is as orthodox chess, but now
there are two different ways to win the game:
- Checkmate the opponent (as usual.)
- Move any piece that is a starting square of one of the rooks of the
opponent. I.e., white wins when he moves a piece to a8 or h8, and black
wins when he moves a piece to a1 or h1.
