Warriors and a king fight on a board with walls and holes. (10x11, Cells: 84) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Mike Nelson wrote on 2002-10-30 UTCGood ★★★★Craig, The rule is actully well thought-out and quite original. This is the only game I'm aware of (with one royal piece) that provides for both checkmate and King capture. The one-turn penalty for allowing the King to be captured is exactly right--by making the opponent actually capture your King, you have required him/her to use an extra move vs. checkmate, so the rules require you to give that move back. Well done! Peter Aronson wrote on 2002-10-29 UTCGood ★★★★This looks interesting, but there's one point of the rules I find confusing: you talk both about the King being checkmated -- which is generally used to mean an inescapable threat to capture but not actual capture -- and being captured. Which is it? 2 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
