Missile Chess by R. Wayne Schmittberger (Non zrf information from Jeremy Harper's entry)



Place a checker beneath every piece and every pawn (not the king).



This checker represents a missle. The missle can fire in the same way that the piece can move. (Therefore, a pawn's missle can go diagonally forward one space, etc.) The missle kills only one enemy piece; it acts as if your piece has moved to that space, but your piece does not actually move. After the piece has fired its missle, remove the checker--that piece cannot fire another missle.


Tactical tips
Be careful when using your missle: Would it be better to go ahead and move your piece, and save your missle for when you really need it?
