Feeble Los Alamos Chess. Los Alamos Chess using Feeble pieces. (6x6, Cells: 36) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I really did mean to get back to Feeble/Weakest Chess and write some more.
Be patient, perhaps I will.

You should say it is neither necessary nor possible to block check.

Your comments on chasing down and retreating show that you have playtested
the Feeble pieces. I know this because I've been there as well.

If I had suggested a Feeble game for those who lack patience, I would have
suggested 'Progressive Feeble Chess'. The idea of small-board feeble chess
would never have occurred to me, and of course any idea I wouldn't have
thought of seems just brilliant to me -- that's human nature.

However, is this the smallest possible feeble chess? Or would it work on a
5x5 board?
