oops. my opening move should obviously be j1-k1. you can fix it and make your move if you see this.

If someone can delete this game, that would be good. I accidentally put myself against Graeme in this game and not Charles.

sorry guys, i mistakenly assigned this as a tournament game. please ignore it as a tournament game. of course, feel free to play it out. or just call it a draw. unfortunately, i don't seem to have the power to delete tournament games, even if i assigned them. maybe someone else can if they see this.

Game: Switching Chess Log: carlos-joejoyce-2005-339-735
carlos carlos Verified as carlos carlos wrote on
hehe. i wondered if your moves were strategically timed, taking into account international datelines etc. i lost three games on time a week ago but managed to keep this one alive. i was going to offer a draw if it wouldn't make any difference to where i would end up in the final table, but it wasn't updated and i didn't have time to check it myself. good game anyway.

this game was so long ago that i don't remember much about it. i am about to start another game and took a look at it. i made two silly errors in the first move. first, i pushed a pawn. according to the rules, the game is too biased if white has a push first move. also, i moved that pawn two squares. it's only supposed to ever be one square. mathieus also moved a pawn two squares in one turn. shoddy reading of the rules by both of us!
Game: Catapults of Troy Log: antoinefourriere-cvgameroom-2005-158-780
carlos carlos Verified as carlos carlos wrote on
antoine, good game! i'm curious to know if you would have played any differently to me towards the end? i had gary do that king switch on me in an earlier game where it caught me by surprise, so i was ready for it this time and planned to send my own king plus the bridge-builder over. i felt in control for a long time, but i didn't anticipate how annoying your few remaining pieces on your home side would be. maybe you did start poorly, but i think you finished well. that early stage was weird. you moved your catapult pretty much the whole way across the back row... seemed like negative play, but each time the catapult has a piece a whole bunch of new threats show up. i'm not sure if my swap of the archer horse for the horse was sound or not. i did it to rule out the possibility of defeat, but in the end it might have ruled out victory too? be interested to know what gary thought of this game.

oh, i was wondering where this game had gone. i missed that mate. good game. this was good because i was outplayed... you played well from start to finish. i've lost a couple of games in this tournament through retarded blunders which are much more annoying. good luck with the rest of the tournament!

roberto, thanks for the game. after the last few moves i am happy to end it here. there doesn't seem like anywhere to go in a hurry from this position. we have both turned down chances to open the game up. good luck with the rest of the tournament.

carlos carlos Verified as carlos carlos wrote on
thanks for the game, mike! it's a shame it didn't last longer. i guess it turned when you missed the potential for my ninth move. from this position i was planning to follow by moving the queen to h1 for another check, then mutating the queen into something stronger. this was only my second game of this, but it is obviously a very cool variant. i hope to play more games later on. good luck in the rest of the tournament.

great idea! i've just noticed this. should be good with george playing and an inventor and players like roberto and antoine kibbitzing. i like this game a lot. my first effort against george i was totally lost, and while i think i am putting up an improved effort in our second go, i confess to playing with a very shallow plan. i don't have any good ideas about position management. i have noticed george is kind of smothering me with his pawns, it seems more important to get a flank of pawns forward (in the center i guess) than i first thought. peter, i don't know if you noticed, but this exact issue came up in my game with george. we resolved it after looking at the animation.

carlos carlos Verified as carlos carlos wrote on
should have known! no, i'm not interested in taking back moves. (i don't think of this continuation of the game as a take-back. the only reason i typed in 'resign' was that the program was refusing to send the move with only the game status changed and nothing in the moves field. if we were at a table, you would have let me know there was a valid move. or even if one did take it as an official resignation, then i would rather see this as post-match analysis than taking back a move.) let's try 22. a3-a5;-a3.
carlos carlos Verified as carlos carlos wrote on
c1-a3;-c1//checkmate? if you agree this is checkmate, i'll start another game up. i've only tried omega chess once. it was interesting, but not exactly inspiring. did you buy an official board? this game is cool. i didn't find the lack of gridlines a problem really. my problem was that when i was visualising a move, i was failing to visualise the newly wormholed square, which can often make the position quite different.
carlos carlos Verified as carlos carlos wrote on
20. g3-h3;-g3 to make this move i dedided i had to set up a board. i just used my normal chess board and pieces plus a couple of kids' toys. i put coins on all the wormholed squares. i don't usually play these online games with a board in front of me. do you?
carlos carlos Verified as carlos carlos wrote on
oh. this game is confusing me. i can move to g3, can't i. so it's not checkmate. but i ended the game, so i don't think we can continue. umm... i move e1-g3;-e1 if you want to finish it by kibbitz.

i'm confused. i can't seem to promote my pawn. i have tried 'd10-;Q-d11' and 'd10-d11;Q-d11'. i get the messages 'you can't change this type of piece' or 'you can only promote on the last rank'. have i got the notation wrong? have i got the move wrong?
