Sky. Brilliant original game by Christine Bagley-Jones. Pieces promote through a succession of odd leapers eventually to a rooks.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

For me, it's ok, but I always clearly show whem I'm kidding and ask for apologies after the joke; what was not the case, in this game that can be seen in one of my comments to C.B.-J (joke and apologies).

Christine: as we dont have Alfaerie for these pieces, I guess, put a little who's who.

Thanks and kisses!

BTW: Christine where are you from?

Nice!

But the idea of a Big Crunch, or a Big Rip to end the game should be considered.

What are the origins of te pieces names?

Mostly the Mecklemberg, Defending and Fish pawns?

Thanks!

Charles:
You owe me an apologie! After all you acused me to made you look vain, when
it' was clearly a typo!!!!

Does the the words:'Sorry Claudio. You right! I'm didn't noticed the
first comment!'. Aren't in your vocabulary??!! The lack of a apologie
really did you look vain, after all uncapable to admit that you made a
minor mistake.

At least GEORGE DUKE PAYS ATENTION IN WHAT I WRITE!

Charles, if you just take a look on my first post (where I rated the game) you'll notice that the charlais was just a typo! There I used the correct name charolais.

Hugs and still waiting for that beers (LOL)!

Claudio Martins Jaguaribe wrote on Tue, Jan 11, 2011 02:35 PM UTC:
Charles Gilman proposed Charlais for the 4:2 leaper, I propose templar, because the Knights Templar seal shows two knights sharing a single horse.

Hugs & Kisses!

Dear Guys:

Recently I’ve discovered that my one of my bosses is a chess fan, so, I
initiated him in the beautiful world of the CVs. For starting point I teach
him about Shogi, Xiang Qi, and Capablanca. Besides that I mentioned
Berolina Chess, Random Chess and Perfect symmetry (white king faces black
queen).

 In a second moment I presented him with: Shatranj, Chaturanga, Courrier,
Duke of Rutland and Tamerlane.

Now I don’t know which variants to present him, my ones, just a
piececlopedia? Shogi variants?

What do you think?

Thanks guys!

I'm mesmerized by it!

But I've noticed that if you change places of the rooks and knights, all leapers and all sliders will be on one side. I can make the game ore interesting.

Hugs!

Mega Doom Chess Project. Missing description[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]
💡📝Claudio Martins Jaguaribe wrote on Mon, Nov 29, 2010 05:24 PM UTC:
Guys:

Besides some suggestions from Daniil and a comment form Mr. Gilman I had no response about this topic/project. So, it’s like The Little Red Hen story; if you are thinking: “I can do it better “, remember that you didn’t and I did. If you have any suggestions, I’m open to then, but, first, read the rules.

Until now I’ve been gathering few ideas, but I didn’t yet made the calculations of the number of the pieces, just the base moves and the templates (take a look at http://www.chessvariants.org/index/msdisplay.php?itemid=MSbasepiecesandt to understand the concept).

At this point I need help with the pieces names (yes, I know kings, etc, but some others…).

O	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
D	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
C	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
O fD	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
D fO	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
fO	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
fD	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
fC	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
mO cD	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
mD cO	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
mfO cfD	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk
mfD cfO	1	n	S2	S3	S4	L2	L3	L4	2+	3+	4+	cL1	mL1	mcL1	Sl	Sk

To help you, help me, let me tell you what means the letters: O- orthogonal, D- diagonal, C- compound (O+D), f- forward, m- move, c- capture, n= any number, S(n)- slides the number, L(n)- leaps the number, (n)+- must at least slide the number, L1- cannon capture movement, Sl- slip movement, Sk- skip movement.

For the knight family, I have, now, the following:

O1 D1, D1 O1	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM
O2 D1, D1 O2	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM
O3 D1, D1 O3	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM
O1 D2, D2 O1	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM
O1 D3, D3 O1	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM
O2 D2, D2 O2	L	Lf	S	SOD	SDO	R	GM	SR	SODR	SDOR	SGM	SODGM	SDOGM

L- leaps, Lf- leaps forward (Shogilike), Slides (Moo), R- rider, GM- Grand Master.

A note about the Grand Master, see the description on the Bizarro Chess.
(http://www.chessvariants.org/index/msdisplay.php?itemid=MSbizarrochess)

The 4:2 Leaper, although Mr. Gilman named it Charolais, I name it the Templar, because of the Knights Templar seal (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/43/Templarsign.jpg)

The irony is that the Portuguese piece name is horse (cavalo), but as I use a lot of English I use the knight/religious orders ranks.

Any suggestions?

Hugs!

Interesting, 3 different games in 3 diferent layers...

Daniil, the LOL= lots of laughs, so, I guess, everybody knows that's a joke, I'm just teasing you, it's of a brazilian, mostly cariocas (I'm one), nature.

And you can tell everybody that you hate me back because of the cross infection (LOL).

I'm up a project that may get your atention (Mega Doom Chess).
