Ready Chess. Pieces cannot capture right after capturing, they have to be restored first. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Neat idea -- I can see where the need to flip a piece before capturing again could really break up an attack. One interesting effect of this change would be, I think, to make pieces closer together in value, since often a Queen's value lies in its ability to capture a piece and simultaneously offer check. Tactics ought to be fairly different. <p> One could extend this to not allowing pieces to even <em>move</em> after capturing until they are flipped. Or allow ready pieces to capture, but at the cost of being removed themselves too.
