Maharajah and the Sepoys modified with a Star Wars theme. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating] Charles Gilman wrote on Mon, Jun 14, 2010 06:39 AM UTC:I overlooked this variant when it was first posted, but now that I look at it in detail, I find it off that the Padawan (the lowest rank of Jedi if I remember rightly) is represented by something as strong as the Rook. It would make more sense to represent it as the piece weaker than the Knight, the Pawn - the letters of which even occur in Padawan in the correct order! Does anyone know if the etymology (real-life rather than storyline) of Padawan is connected with Pawn? There have certainly been stranger derivations of Star Wars names than that! Anonymous wrote on Sat, Jun 12, 2010 09:14 AM UTC:In Wkipedia CV i saw another game, called 'jedi chess': knights are replaced with jedis (players must chose, wich jedis they will use before playing): jedi paddawans (archbishops) - B+N, jedi knights (chanselors) - R+N or jedi masters (amazones) - Q+N. There is also some variants of rules of circular game, played by Chewbaca and C3PO: http://www.chessvariants.org/link2.dir/holochess.html (look at commetns for this page). 💡📝Dave Leigh wrote on Tue, Nov 14, 2006 06:00 AM UTC:Yes. I believe that was originally 'eliminate or checkmate', though. I purposely allowed several variants to balance the game between players of different strengths. That's because I have kids whose ages range from 10 to 19. They're all challenged and entertained. Personally, I prefer the more cutthroat variant where no quarter is given. May the Force be with you! John Ayer wrote on Tue, Nov 14, 2006 02:32 AM UTC:This looks like fun... BUT: Rule 4 says, 'The goal for the Jedi is to eliminate checkmate the Sith Master.' Should I delete 'eliminate' and go with the result? 4 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
