Players can select from nine chess armies on an 8x8 or 9x9 board. (9x9, Cells: 81) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Anonymous wrote on 2010-03-29 UTCExcellent ★★★★★George Duke, did yu know that Chess with different armies is not the first chess game with diffirent armies? I think, Drop chess is even a bit more interesting than CWDA. CWDA, of course, also have good points: it can be played with standart chess set. I think, CWDA is good when you want to play game, wich is close to chess, and DC is good if you want to play new game. Actually, i don't think that this game is 'excellent', my real opinion is 'good', i just don't want it's avarage rating be 'below average'. George Duke wrote on 2005-02-03 UTCPoor ★'DEF,LargeCV': 'Drop Chess' a misnomer, it is a Chess-Different-Armies copycat. Nine armies mean eighty-one new games. None of Ralph Betza's elan or panache here, no Betza-style reasoning and rigour. 'I would just like someone's else's opinion if the armies are equally balanced or not' --McKinnis. Sweep this one aside and start from scratch if wanting to add teams to 25-year-old Chess-Unequal-Armies. 2 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
