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?
