 By Roberto  Lavieri. Maxima. Maxima is an interesting and exiting variant of Ultima, with new elements that make Maxima more clear and dynamic. (Cells: 76) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Finally, I have decided that Mike Nelson proposal number one is reasonable for special ends in this game: 1.- You can win occuping the second goal square, inclusive if you are in Check: You have reached a win condition before the other, the object of the check was capture the King and end the game, regardless it never happens, but the move to the Goal have finished the game before the other win condition can be reached. 2.- If you are checkmated, and the other team can reach the second Goal square immediately after that, the checkmate is removed with the win condition of Palace invasion, the object of the Checkmate was capture the King in the next move, but it can´t happen, because the other team finished the game before that. 3.- You can reach the second square with your King inclusive if the move puts your King in Checkmate. This rules are consistent with the Zillions implementation, so there is not any problem!
