Communist Chess

In this game, both players always have equal material, so you have to have a better position to have an advantage.


Same as normal Chess, except:
  1. When you capture an opponent's piece, you must destroy one of your own pieces of the same type.
  2. When you promote a pawn, you must also change one of your opponent's pawn to the same type of piece you promoted to.
  3. You may win as normal, but another victory condition is when both players are reduced to only kings, the last player to make a capture wins.
