Fergus Duniho wrote on 2006-08-19 UTCThat's correct. They may not. Stephen Stockman wrote on 2006-08-18 UTCExcellent ★★★★★Can a knight assimilate with a queen? In reading the rules it appears they my not, is that correct? Fergus Duniho wrote on 2004-04-16 UTCMike Nelson has correctly answered your questions. Regarding splitting and capturing in the same move, I already tried this in Sentai Chess, the precursor of Fusion Chess. It was too powerful of a move, making the game less balanced. When one compound piece attacked a defended compound piece, it could capture it with minimal loss. This made compound pieces a bit too much like rifle pieces. Michael Nelson wrote on 2004-04-15 UTCCharles, I checked the Zillions implementation for the answers, as the page is somewhat unclear on some of them. (1) Yes, you can capture an uncombinable piece. (2) Yes, the captured piece is removed form the game. (3) You must alway capture with the compound piece, as splitting may only be done by moving to an empty square. Split and capture would make an interesting variant. In that variant, my answer to (3) would be: Yes. If for you need to vacate the starting square (for example to give discovered check). Charles Gilman wrote on 2004-04-15 UTCGood ★★★★(1) Can a piece capture an enemy with which it cannot combine? If not ignore the other questions. (2) If a piece captures an enemy with which it cannot combine, is the capture exactly like FIDE Chess, and if not, what happens? (3) Are there any circumstances where it is advantageous to capture with the whole of a compound piece rather than with just a component that can combine with the captured piece? 6 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
