Warm Spit Chess is variant of Ataturk. Election day USA. ''The Vice Presidency ain't worth a bucket of warm spit,'' said one 20th-Century USA Vice President of Franklin Roosevelt, John Nance Garner (1868-1967). Basically, Betza's Ataturk calls overthrowing own government, built into the constitution, changing royal piece from King, for the cost of a tempo. (Joe Joyce refers to CVs not worth the ether they're printed on.)

As I understand it, the cells through which a royally-restricted piece cannot move if attacked are those through which the piece ordinarily cannot move if occupied, which are the nearer destination cells. This does not affect a Knight, which has all its destination cells equidistant in different directions. It would affect a Nightrider or even a Rose, but only as regards cells an exact number of Knight moves along the path. I first saw this variant after submitting a Piececlopedia entry on which a link to this page would be relevant, but I will try and remember to add it in when I eventually submit an update.

A lazy editor has added a related variant by Ralph Betza, Warm Spit Chess, to this page.

A really fine game concept. I can't help but wonder how well Attaturk Lag Chess would play.
