Comparatively, in orthodox chess a pawn is easy to block. This creates the marked drawishness of practical endgames. Therefore, most chessplayers prefer to keep the queen on the board, until they have created an advantage. Players can now exchange queen and enter a practical endgame, and, unlike before, the stronger player will tend to win. This is, arguably, a significant improvement compared with orthodox chess.
Unlike in regular chess, this position is won regardless who makes the first move.
The following preset makes a validity check of moves. Moves are automated. You can move pieces by clicking on them. At promotion you will be asked what piece you prefer.
