Ascension. (Updated!) 6x6 board with two Kings that promote to royal Queens.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Thanks Greg for your question.

I have not thought much about whether the royal Queen can move through a square where it would be put in check. Since in orthodox chess, the King can never move into a square where it will be in check even when castling, then it is a natural extension that it should also be true for a royal Queen. This will restrict the possible squares that a royal Queen can move into, and limit its power.

I will add a note in the promotion rules to clarify this matter.
