Though I am not a particularly strong player, I would be extremely interested in participating should another tournament ever arise.

Using IE9 I constantly get an extremely annoying hovering menu bar that sits in the top left of each page on the site and does not appear to be removable or minimisable. I believe that it is supposed to activate only when I hover over the CVP logo in the top left, but on many pages it is jsut permanent. This is fine on most pages, though irritating, but on this page it prevents me being able to read or select the top few menu items.
Thanks, wOl.

Cannibal Chess and Absorption Chess. Pieces gain the powers of a piece they take. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I recently played Cannibal chess with a group of friends, although we play the game with normal Kings, which we prefer because increases the chances of checkmates if he is able to take a powerful piece and this also allows a player to deal with an opponent's passed pawns without sacrificing a piece to do so.
In a recent game, a player was able to create a real-game position to win a game (against a normally stronger opponent) with eight queens (one on the eighth rank of each file) by having his peices canibalise the enemy pawns one by one, then promoting them. A strange outcome, but it made for a good photo.
