Just as well that I saw this page first and saved the bother. JorgKnappen wrote on 2003-08-22 UTCThe game resembles much to Pillar Chess (described on this site) and >>Das trojanische Spiel<< (commercial, german game, having a link in the german section of this site). Ivan A Derzhanski wrote on 2003-04-01 UTCThe site gives no explicit answer to that question. My own opinion is as follows: Since it is the topmost man that determines who the stack belongs to and how it moves, you shouldn't be able to castle with a Rook that's inside a stack. You should, however, regain the option of doing so if the Rook is uncaptured without having been moved out of the corner. Likewise, a Pawn captured and released before having moved should be able to make a double move. --ID Ed wrote on 2003-04-01 UTCThanks for clarifying. Can you castle using a rook which has been 'captured' but not left its original square and is now in a friendly stack? Ivan A Derzhanski wrote on 2003-03-31 UTCThe King can never be within a stack. You may not capture your own King (otherwise the first thing you'd do would be to use your Queen to do so, creating a royal Queen that would be very hard to checkmate), and, as in OrthoChess, a King may not be left _en prise_ until checkmated. --ID Ed wrote on 2003-03-31 UTCIf the king is within a stack, can that stack cross a square that is under attack by the opponent? 9 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
