Start with a King and two Pawns, then move or drop one of the remaining pieces. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Andreas Kaufmann wrote on 2003-01-07 UTCI played this game a lot with a computer (using Zillion) and didn't see any evidence that the game is more drawish then standard chess. Dropping pieces not only usefull by defence. It is also a powerful way to continue your attack. The white can start the attack already from the first move (e.g. Qg3), then continue it with dropping Rooks and Bishops. The variant suggested by Sam also looks interesting, it will stimulate ealy droping of all pieces and delay exchanges until all of them (or almost all of them) are on the board.
