Kristensen's Game. A conscious attempt to restructure Chess from 1948. (9x9, Cells: 81) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This CV has all Excellent and Poor, and that happens not so infrequently. Such wide fluctuation may be indicative of Chaos, or transition to and from chaotic system, or state change. In 1948 Kristensen's is a more liberal Bishops' Conversion rule than Cetina proposes later in 1983. Bishop adds one step forward and back to its inventory as often as wanted. Kristensen's shows 9x9 like all of Maura's Modern, Cetina's, Chancellor Chess and Ministers Chess. The one Barrier Pawn is a cannibal but for capturing the other Barrier Pawn. From the amazing starting array, every piece can be moved. The better CVs implement only few new rules rather than overcomplexify. Kristensen's has all interesting features, and the only mistakes are having two Queens and secondly using unnecessary RNs(the Carrera masterpiece Champion) and worse placing them next to regular Knights.
