Spatial Chess 14 X 14
Spatial Chess 14 X 14 has several remarkable qualities:
The edges of the board are merely representational!
Orthogonal and diagonal movement of a circumnavigational
nature is possible since spaces represented on opposite
edges are also actually adjacent to one another.
Draws are rare.
Each player begins with 42 pieces- 16 bishops, 22 rooks, 4 queens.
No pawns, knights or king(s) are used.
Development is faster, more dangerous, less tedious than with standard chess.
The theoretical depth is NOT disappointing.
The opening setup has perfect, bilateral symmetry.
Game stability and a very small first-move advantage are assured due to:
An opening setup where no captures are possible upon the first move.
Spatial Chess 14 X 14 is ready to be played, analyzed, enjoyed against computer
and/or human opponents.
"Zillions Of Games 1.X" allows the opening setup to be played directly as a game.
Eleven standard chess sets are required to physically own a Spatial Chess 14 X 14 set
(except the board).
