Win by mating your opponent, or marrying off your King. (7x6, Cells: 42) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Charles Gilman wrote on 2003-06-14 UTCExcellent ★★★★★It occurs to me that this is not merely one good idea, but two good ideas that work well separately or together. The promotion and win-by-marriage rules could also be applied to other arrays without a Queen - those of Chaturanga, Courier, Shogi, and the 'Kamil' games come to mind. It could even be combined with an idea that I had called Recapitulative Chess - a 9-rank Chaturanga in which Ferz can be promoted to Queen, Elephant to Bishop, and Pawn to any modern capturable piece. Conversely your array would be a good one for a form of Kingrider Chess - a game on which there are never a capturable Queen but the King's move is extended, usually with restrictions. See King Battler in the Piececlopedia for an example (and its comments for others) of such a piece.
