 By Ralph  Betza. Closing Time. During certain turns, you must move pieces out of a central area of the board (`the pub'). (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This game sets up a periodical effect by Betza. The Pub, the widened 8 central squares, is closed specific three of every 10 moves, and any pieces there must exit one by one insofar as possible. Here Ralph Betza suggests having Chess Variant tournaments which did not exist then. Playing all Betza games would be the best possible themed tournament, most never even played in CVP's Game Courier. Betza recognizes the Pub as what we now call a Mutator, the term originating with J.P. Neto, meaning its use could easily be widely applicable even to inferior piece mixes, the now popular slapdash potpourri.
