Captured pieces are replaced with non-capturing counterparts. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Kevin Pacey wrote on 2018-03-01 UTCExcellent ★★★★★A cool idea for a variant. It takes some time to discover various strategies that can be employed by the players with the stated rules. [edit: My tentative estimates for the piece values are as follows: Capturing pieces: P=2; B=3; N=3.5; R=4 and Q=6 (same values as I gave for in Crazyhouse); Non-capturing pieces: P=1.25; B=1.5; N=1.75; R=2 and Q=3 (computed using x0.5 penalty for non-capturing movements - note a pawn is thus slightly less affected in its value decrease).] Gary Gifford wrote on 2004-04-03 UTCExcellent ★★★★★I just want to say that I am quite impressed with Clockwork Orange Chess. It is easy to play and the Shogi-like drop of active and neutral pieces adds a great deal to the tactical and strategic arena. I appreciate the allegorical aspect of the game. Its relation to the Clockwork Orange story is both intriguing and carries a subtle humorous tone. I saw the movie... but now feel inclined to read the book. If a remake of Clockwork Orange is made, I think that to have a few characters in the movie playing Clockwork Orange Chess would be a very nice touch. Thank you Fergus Duniho, for bringing us this enjoyable and clever variant.

Larry Smith wrote on 2004-03-25 UTCExcellent ★★★★★Well, according to the ZRF non-capturing Pawns promote to other non-capturing pieces. This appears very logical. A very interesting game. Sort of Alice Chess meets Shogi with boxing gloves in a knife fight. ;-) Charles Gilman wrote on 2004-03-25 UTCExcellent ★★★★★What can non-capturing Pawns be promoted to? 5 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
