Hero's Chess

Introduction

This is a game by my brother.

There is only one new piece.

I hope you like it.

Setup

There are two types of playing: Dragon Mode and Army Mode. Setup in Army Mode is like chess. Set up in Dragon Mode is one side is chess and the Dragon goes at the other side touching the end in the middle.

Eg:

Pieces

Pawn - Soldier - Moves like chess king captures like chess king.

King - Hero - Moves like chess king. Can attack like chess king or rifle capture like chess queen. It can push a piece beside it back one space and can move a piece in the same row as it (orthogonaly or diagonaly) away or closer to it as many spaces as it wants (yours or your opponents). You loose if this is captured.

Rook - Ranger - Moves like chess king and rifle captures like chess queen. It can push a piece beside it back one space.

Bishop - Wizard - Moves one space orthogonaly and can move a piece in the same row (orthogonaly or diagonaly) closer or farther away from it. It can heal a fallen piece.

Dragon - Takes up 16 spaces on the board. Can move like chess king and rifle capture like a king. You loose if this is deafeated. Has 8 hit points. If a piece uses a displacment capture on it, that piece gets pushes back the way it came until it isnt standing on it. (This piece only appears in Dragon Mode)

Rules

The rules are like chess but there are two ways of playing. In Dragon Mode one player is the Dragon while the other is the army. In Army Mode it is like chess. A difference in the game is there is no castling and if a piece is captured, it is just knocked down and stays on the space it is on. A wizard can heal this piece but until then noone cane step on the space of the dead body. What a displacement capture happens, the piece that captured it can stay on the square until it moves off. A rifle capture can still move over the dead body.

Notes

It is a very interesting game. It might be hard to find a 4 by 4 piece to use as the Dragon so try Army Mode with a friend. Have Fun!
