Majority Chess. You can move a piece only if it is on a file where you have a majority of pieces. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

A potentially interesting idea, though I haven't had the chance to play it

But the first example is misanalysed: Bf3 is not Stalemate, but rather illegal as it equalises the number of pieces on the e file, allowing the black queen to move and give check to white.

The assertion about the e file wrt the f4 pawn is presumably a typo.
