Prophesy the doom of opposing pieces two turns in advance to capture them. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]George Duke wrote on 2009-07-18 UTCGood ★★★★''How easy is a Bush supposed a Bear!'' --Theseus 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' Shakespeare Betza says he invented Cassandra in 1970s and Parton lived to 1974. I doubt they met though Betza mentions trips to Europe and chess tournaments he played at Japan.

I predict that it will be playable with unusual material balance. Say the game is Colorbound Clobberers vs. Fabulous FIDEs. At the Queen stage, the Clobberers can threaten a Queen, but the FIDE's can only threaten a Cardinal--but the FIDEs have gotten to threaten stronger pieces along the way. Similarly, the FIDEs vs the Amazon Army should work. At any rate I don't think it will greatly increase problems with unusual material balance. Of course, this is only a prophecy . . . 3 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
