Each piece has two identities, Cloak and concealed Base.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]David Cannon wrote on 2018-04-03 UTCExcellent ★★★★★I like this concept. Pieces can suddenly "come out" as something else. I suppose this could be called a variant of chess with incomplete information — as the "true identity" of each player's pieces is known to the respective players, but not to their opponents. At the same time, cloaking forces the player to decide in advance which piece will morph into what, preventing arbitrariness. Anthony Viens wrote on 2020-03-03 UTCGood ★★★★This is a really good idea, the only problem being it really needs a custom Chess set. I'm guessing it would require similar bluffing strategy like Stratego. I can see myself thinking "hummm, that faux Pawn can't be anything valuable, it's too exposed.... unless that's what he wants me to think....or, he could be counting on me to think that's what he wants me to think...." :-) This actually has a decent chance of commercial success, in my opinion. It's got 'wow' factor, but close enough to normal Chess to feel familiar. Great idea. 2 comments displayedEarlier ⇧Reverse Order⇩ LaterPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
