1998 Upchess' one type piece moves according to the Rank it is on. The Bobber in Schizophrenic Chess the first time it moves is a one-step Queen(=King nonroyal). Its second move allows up to two steps Queenlike(Lavieri's Lion-Man et al.) Third one- two- or three-step Queen. By its 11th Move it is full Queen and stays that way on the 12x7 board. The moves of Left Schizzy and Right Schizzy depend on whether they are in files a-f or g-l. Obviously the two reverse each other's pattern, either moving like a Queen from one half of board or an Omega Chess Wizard plus Knight from a starting square in the other half of board. Schizophrenic year 2002 thus is taken to have drawn on Upchess.
