Game: Fusion Chess Log: judgmentality-joejoyce-2007-270-699

My understanding is different. You move a piece FROM one square TO the other. When reading games scores, people say 'Pawn TO King's Four' or 'Knight TO f3'. I would take 'to' to mean the destination square.

'A compound piece may split into its components by moving one of its components, under its own powers of movement, to an empty square.' The empty square requirement excludes captures and fusions, when separating.

i typed exactly this : -- g10-e10 -- and it tells me this : -- This preset now uses the new code for identifying check, checkmate, and stalemate. Let me know of any problems with it. You may not move a o from g10 to e10 -- I mean, even the grammar doesn't hold !!
Abdul-Rahman Sibahi Verified as Abdul-Rahman Sibahi wrote on
Does the preset have a bug or something ? It doesn't allow me to move my changeling from g10-e10 .. Or is it something in the rules I don't understand ? the page says they're absolute halflings, not relative halflings.

Nice, I never saw the web page for Complete Permutation Chess. It looks like a nice variant. I can make a preset with a write-up to the rules (either as a link to the page, or, if it's deleted, in the preset's page itself.) If you give me the green light I'll put it in my to-do list. By the way, the Queen Full Board variant is 13x13, I miscounted the files!! You could add empty ranks and files around the board though, kinda like the board of 12x12 Chess. (In an unrelated note, my name is Abdul-Rahman, not just Abdul. Nothing important, just a little annoyance.)

Hmm, this looks interesting I'll accept this if you do me the favor of checking the 'Exclude pieces not in setup' square and correct the icons in the Rules summary. (How do you do one of those rule summaries, btw?)

Ed Friedlander's applet shows correctly how the Airplane moves. Check it out. To sum it up, it jumps to ANY vacant square on the same rank, file or diagonal. If it jumps to a square immediately behind an enemy piece that piece is captured.

Move the piece to the square it MOVES to, like ( f4-d4 ) and then remove the captured piece, like ( e4- ). The full move would be written like ( f4-d4;e4- ) in case of multiple captures, just repeat the process ( f4-d4; e4-; d4-d6; d5- ).
Game: Middle Board Chess Log: judgmentality-dtroyka-2007-108-467

It would be easier to type moves if the middle board was simple a1, a2 not Ba1 and Ba2. Then any move would be either e2-e4 or Ce2-e4 Just a thought.

Something occured to me while I was trying to move pieces around on the Hyperchess board. If we follow all rules concerning movements except the King's hold rule, and we flip the little squares and the big squares: the resulting game would be exactly the same (except for the interesting starting array.) If we are to apply the King's hold, it will be in reverce: if both kings are on the same little square the king there first can't get out of it unless to another big square. The pawn protection rule will work beautifully as well. Following the notion of the little square and big square being two sides of a coin, I believe the King's hold should apply to both of them; it produces interesting tactics : one of the kings can try to hold the other from the very beginning of the game without (at least apparently) getting too close to the enemy. This can work in W&J as well, but I am not sure how to represent the walkers' moves in the reversed board. HyperCazyHouse is an interesting varint, pawn can't be dropped if the sum of the first and third digit is 1 or 8. Or Atomic HyperChess, where pieces explode when captured removing every piece (but not pawns) on the adjacent squares, both big and little. HyperShatranj (which you're already playing in the game courier) looks good. (sorry for not waiting till the move, I wanted to write this before I forget it.)

The Shooters are obviously too powerful in the opening. You can play : 1... Zh4+ and nothing can stop 2.. Zxe4 mate. I am thinking of a Wazir-Dabbabah-(3,0)leaper for the rooks (WDH in the funny notation), and a digonal counterpart for the bishops (FAG in the funny notation), and the Queen is again a combination of the two.
