John rates poor but we rather liked XYMYX five years ago. ''El XYMYX me parece uno de los juegos de estrategia mas interesantes que he tenido la oportunidad de jugar, es divertido y la vez educacional, la opcion de mover las fichas a la vez le da un nivel de dificultad y atractivo bastante grande.'' Sounds familiar.

This game seems horribly unnatural in some of its rules, with needless amounts of testimonial in the comments.

I've played Xymyx, and I really beleive this is a true evolution from traditional chess. your proposal allows having a new and dinamic play. I suggest every chess players to try it.

Hola, Soy un fanático de los 'juegos' electrónicos, de contacto y por sobre todo de los de mesa entre ellos go, ajedrez, pero el que más me ha cautivado es el 'XYMYX' por su inovación, es algo parecido aun juego de azar lo cual es muy propenso a generar 'adicción', y a la vez un juego de extremo cálculo; yo sin ser un gran comentarista lo llegaría ha catalogar como ¡el juego de la vida! por que en el tablero se desata una 'lucha sin tregua' en la que ambos bandos deseosos de ganar la contienda fabrican su mejor plan, estrategia o táctica para poder vencer a su rival, pero siempre es mejor practicarlo que tener que hablar sobre él. ¡¡¡Por eso solo hazlo!!!

Well, I`m not going to add news to the controversy about the first. This game, and Syncronous Chess are both very interesting and somewhat strange in its fundamental essence, i.e. syncrony, but some rules need to be precisely clarified. In XYMYX, castling and Pawn captures can show some bizarre situations in which it is not clear the correct move. Promotions and Checking the King too. It should be good an exhaustive explanation on the exact rules that applies in such rare cases.

XYMXY was introduced in international Toy Fair “Univers des Enfants” (Paris 2.003). As a matter of fact, XYMYX won a LEPINE PRICE (silver medal) in that Fair. <p>I suggest you to learn about XYMYX. <p>To play XYMYX you must use XYMYX software (available in Internet) or XYMYX hardware (available in a couple of months) <p>I have read about Synchronous Chess, and I find some similarities in the essence of the game, and the rules are forced to fit into the Synchronous Chess scheme. I reserve to myself the right to investigate and start any legal action against the people behind Synchronous Chess.
