Simplified Chess. Missing description (8x7, Cells: 56) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Hello John.

I think the basics here are that I posted Skirmish Chess, not knowing what it was, and you suggested chopping the last rows off and removing a lot of rules.  I happened to keep the rows in actually.  You then went this chopped route, playtested it, and decided to throw a row back in.  I feel it is more like you worked on Near Chess, while Simplified Chess is your own thing.  My take on Simplified is that I would put castling in if I were to play it, and put more of a focus on the distance between the pieces (and single pawn movement) instead of it being simplified.

What I will say, out of all this, is the 8x7 board is what has seemed to have captured the most interest of people though.
