Queens are placed instead of Pawns. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Jeremy Good wrote on 2006-10-31 UTCThat's an interesting combination; maybe you're right. Please explain why the 2. Qxd7 is necessary so I more fully understand. Ursel wrote on 2006-10-31 UTCPoor ★This variant is poor, because white is very likely to win. After 1. Qaxf7+ Qxf7 2. Qxd7+ Bxd7 3. Rxa7 white is up the exchange rook for queen. Charles Gilman wrote on 2005-02-07 UTCGood ★★★★There are some other things to which you could add cross-references here. One is the film Nine Queens, as a sizeable number of variants with film connections (though usually more deliberate than this) is building up. The other is the variant Power Chess, alas only shown as an implementation (/play/erf/PowerChs.html), in which Queens replace the Rooks, Bishops, and Knights.

One is the film Nine Queens, particularly as film-themed variants seem to be coming into fashion again. The other is a variant, whose name escapes me, in which Queens replace the Rooks, Bishops, and Knights. Perhaps someone who can remember the name could post a comment giving it. 4 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
