Chess game where white has two Angels and black has two Devils. (10x8, Cells: 80) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Greg Strong wrote on 2005-07-17 UTCThank you all for the usful comments. I've decided to resolve the problem with the A-file being safe from angels (at least for now) by reversing the pieces (both white and black) on the h- and i-files. This does have the effect of eliminating the distinction between the light and dark squares; now white has a light-colored angel and a dark-colored angel, and black has devils on both squares. This also addresses Sam's very valid concern that opposite colors makes the game more draw-ish. Of course, this means that all the computer testing that I have done to test the balance will have to be redone. I'm afraid that eliminating of the a-file safe-zone will make White more powerful. We'll see. I'll upload a new image and update this page shortly. P.S. the new ChessV version released already incorporates this change.
