Game where players decide how the pieces move and where they go. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Rich Hutnik wrote on 2008-03-20 UTCI am glad someone found this. Anyhow, it is obvious that this version of chess would need work. It was much more of a framework that can be used. The idea now for working with the Seirawan, IAGO or whatever, is to come up with some framework to be able to standardize the introduction and testing of chess variants. In Meta Chess you see a part of the puzzle. The idea here isn't now to be most clever, but get things moving. IAGO is going to want to have a way to standardize around the Capablanca school, and have it so that it will be able to expand and adjust over time and not get bogged down in over-analyzed chess. Again, thanks for mentioning this. By the way, the definition of gating does need to be finalized so it isn't the same thing as a drop, but rather it is a specialized drop. One could even think of a pawn promotion as a form of gating.
