Other chess variants

Page history last edited by Andreas Kaufmann 2 years, 3 months ago

Here are some interesting games from some rather rarely played chess variants.


Hostage chess



Here is position after 49th White's move. Blue area on the left-side of the board is Black's "airfield", pieces can be placed directly to the board from there (at the cost of move). White area at the right is "prison", opponents pieces from there can be exchanged with own pieces in opponent's prison.


Black starts an attack with sacrifice of 2 pawns, followed by queen sacrifice. White prefers to take knight instead of queen, but a few moves later, Black sacrifices the queen again. White takes queen this time and Black continue with bishop sacrifice.


Marseillais chess (balanced variation):
