 By Hans L. Bodlaender. Not a Dodgson System Chess. Four player variant, using Alice chess movement. Win by taking most of the eliminated players pieces. (7x6x2, Cells: 84) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This looks amusing. It does seem that the scoring system encourages the other players to turn on the first player significantly damaged like starving wolves, lest they be left without any pieces of the eliminated player when it comes time to score. Not a game to play with someone who takes attacks personally! An omnidirectional Pawn is actually mWcF -- mFcW is an omnidirectional Berolina Pawn. This page might benefit from an ASCII diagram to backup the Javascript -- I first looked at it with Javascript turned off and was puzzled.
