The Forward FIDEsThis is a team made up of pieces whose forward and sideward moves are exactly the same as the Fabulous FIDEs, but whose retreating moves are different.
This is an excellent first team for excellent chessplayers. The all-important forward moves are the same, so that a great deal of opening theory is still useful (presuming that the game is between the Fabulous FIDEs and the Forward FIDEs); at the same time, there is just enough of a difference to be intriguing.
In the CenterThe Forequeen, or fsQbhNbK, moves forwards or sideways as the Queen, but retreats using either the moves of the Knight or King.
In the CornerThe Furlrurlbakking, or frlRrlbK, is known from the Nutty Knights team.
This piece moves and captures just like a FIDE Rook when it moves forwards or sideways, but when it retreats it moves like the King (one square diagonally or one square Rookwise).
