This is a really good and challenging game although have you thought of using unequal armies? Maybe you could use speacil rules so that you could defeat the enemy in a number of different ways, although you should make it too complicated.

This is cool to see the history of 4-way chess. We are currently playing a variation of Verney's Game in Wisconsin, partners sit accross from each other and all the queens start on white. In the Midwestern variation all the rules of regular chess apply. To play by e-mail or for more info write to: [email protected]

I have played over a thousand games of 4-way chess (very similar to four handed chess) and the pawns never make it all the way accross the board, players always get check-mated before that. Only a few times has it gotten to an endgame where players are trying to promote pawns. We play that pawns are promoted if they get all the way accross the board, but it doesn't matter much cause it hardly never happens. Only twice have I seen anyone promote to their opponent's first rank, and indeed it can only be done by capturing, lol.
