Missing description (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Roberto Lavieri wrote on 2005-12-03 UTCUpdated Roberto Lavieri wrote on 2005-12-02 UTCThank you, David. Yes, the mentioned Shogi rule for promotions would be interesting, in the sense it can allow a player put a promoted piece (to King) in a safe or an offensive square, depending on the circumstances. I´m convinced that yours is a rule in perfect harmony with the spirit of the game and it is an improvement, so I´ll adopt it. Credit is yours. David Paulowich wrote on 2005-12-02 UTCTo clarify my previous comment on deferred promotions - I did not mean to suggest promotion to anything other than a new King. And your rule  means that a lone 'stalemated' King must move into check and therefore lose. That simplifies the ending K + P versus K considerably. David Paulowich wrote on 2005-12-02 UTCI would recommend something similar to the SHOGI promotion rules. [1A] is your original promotion rule (mandatory for pawns). [1B] 'A promotion may be deferred to a later move, as long as this move begins inside the promotion zone. Where the move ends is of no relevance.' According to my limited knowledge of SHOGI, a Bishop in the promotion zone will first move like a Bishop and then have the option of promoting to a Dragon Horse. This sort of promotion can make Multi-King Chess more exciting. Roberto Lavieri wrote on 2005-12-02 UTCThanks, Doug. Updated page, with an answer to your question about if a King can move to a square in which it is in Check. I think yes. Doug Chatham wrote on 2005-12-01 UTCGood ★★★★Slight typo in your description. 'Chekmate' should be 'checkmate'. 6 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
