Mega-Chess. A chess game where each piece is a chess game! (8x8x64, Cells: 4096) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

If a player merely has the choice of making eight normal moves OR making a
single Mega-move, and the goal is checkmating the Mega-King, what
encourages a player to not just make Mega-moves?  If the player just
makes
Mega-moves, the opponent would be at a disadvantage unless they reply
with
Mega-moves.

A logical rule would be that each player would make a single normal move
on eight of the Mega-piece boards AND a single Mega-move.  The resulting
conditions of the smaller games would definitely effect the larger.


Just a thought.
