You are arguing with a spam bot.

great article , this is definitely one of the best for young chess players to read and learn strategy.

This page describes the rules of a Chess variant. It is not about Chess strategy.

The author of this page hasn't been around for a while. The page you linked to is for a Baseball-themed Chess set. Although this page has no diagram, the game is apparently played on a 9x9 board. So, it could not be played with a regular Chess set, though perhaps the pieces from a Baseball-themed Chess set could be used with it.

You forgot the / in the ending /SCRIPT tag for ffen2diag (which does not exist, anyways). Please correct this problem so that the comments can be viewed display properly.

Another comment is, now we made this game with Baseball, do we have one with Cricket game? (The cricket game is a different game, but it has a few similarities with baseball)

Paul Leno here of Gridlock 3-D Chess, great game you have, we're doing a level of Gridlock called the Grid Iron. It'll be one of our future levels in the series. We're now so close to exposing our games to all in both the board game version and the video series. I'm partnered with MediaSoft and have be developing the opening rounds of the video game all summer. MediaSoft want to put the game out now but I'm forcing my hand a little and getting everything just right. I'll share some screenshots with ya. Email me at [email protected]

Nonant has already been a casual Chess term in the sense that a covered 3x3 (=9) is Checkmate on any rectangle barring intercession (capture or block). These apply to CVs with wild pieces as well as OrthoChess. (1) King is checked? Does he have a nonant left? If not, game and checkmate. (2) All the surrounding 8 radial adjacencies covered? Yes, but King is not in check, and the game just goes on as usual, since he has his seated nonant left, down to one square, still that solitary leg to stand on. But for so long? // __________________ [[Joyce: would you or Howe erase the hidden-from-public last line of Baseball Chess here? It goes roughly altered as: ''SCript Langu=JavaScript,src../lib etc.scrpT>''. Now Baseball is fine except that very last line, which erases the member-editing paragraph under Notes.]]
