Dice Chess is a light way to pass time with a chess variant when you don't feel like thinking too much.

Note that my estimates for the values of the chess pieces seems applicable here too: P=1; N=3.49; B=3.5; R=5.5; Q=10 and a fighting value of K=4.

Hi Ben

I'm afraid I have no idea where wikipedia might have obtained their suggested rules from.

I can't quite tell from the Wikipedia article; are these rules from Gollon's book? I don't have a copy, but if so this page should probably reference that book directly rather than the wiki article.

See also Vegas Fun Chess on these pages or other dice games in Chapter 30 in the Classified Encyclopedia.
