Joshua's Chess. Missing description (12x12, Cells: 144) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Roberto, thank you for your comment. I'm putting the finishing touches
on a ZRF and it will be up later this weekend.

Andy, the restriction was added to prevent check on the opening move,
followed by continuing attacks resulting in a White win in 10 moves or so
in most cases. The current rule for the Pao/Vao moves strengthens the
defense as well as weakening the attack.

questions: with the vao/pao properties given to the bishops/rooks
respectively... they only leap a friendly piece... was this
intentional?...

if you make a zrf have you thought of asking your son joshua to design the
pieces using a paint program?

It looks very playable at first appearance, and I guess it is a good game, by genetical reasons. What about a ZRF, to see?
