The Spinal Tap Chess army vs the Terror Chess army in the battle of the 11x11 variants. (11x11, Cells: 121) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Brian Wong wrote on 2004-04-20 UTCExcellent ★★★★★Wow, I have really been missing out by not checking out this board. I got a kick out of seeing David's comments for Terror Chess and laughed when I read about pitting the two armies against each other. Then I find that you have actually DONE it! You guys have totally made my day. My email is [email protected], and I hope to play this against you soon. Not too soon though, I have not learned Spinal Tap yet.... Peter Aronson wrote on 2002-05-01 UTCWell, given that in Tai Shogi pieces promote when they capture (I think), he might have been discussing something other than material. John Lawson wrote on 2002-05-01 UTCIn George Hodges' 'Ten Shogi Variants', Wayne Schmittberger states, in the Tai Shogi section, 'A single Pawn, or other weak piece, advanced too far to be protected can, under certain circumstances, be fatal in a game of Tai!' If this is true, then it's unlikely that Spinal Tap vs. Terror Chess has reached the stage where there is so much material imbalance doesn't matter. Peter Aronson wrote on 2002-04-30 UTCGood ★★★★It's nice to see a game of different armies on a large canvas. It's hard to tell if it is balanced or not, but I wonder if balance is as important at this scale: both sides possibly having more material than they can effectively use. Or is 11x11 with 22 pieces a side too small for that sort of effect? 4 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
