Players start with an illegal move from a stalemated position. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]George Duke wrote on 2004-06-22 UTCGood ★★★★I maintain the starting arrays within Passed Pawns Chess and Passed Pawns, Scorpions and Dragon are improvements over this 'advanced pawns' concept. I did not find Patt-schach and Upside-Down Chess right away(although I knew I had seen them about 1996), as references for those two variant pages from 2003, designed equally to highlight Falcon move.

George Duke wrote on 2017-03-01 UTCGood ★★★★The first move has to be illegal, so Black Pawn cannot on the first move take a White Pawn that has moved 1 P-a2. Since it is legal move for Black, he cannot do so on move 1. 4 comments displayedEarlier ⇧Reverse Order⇩ LaterPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
