Cheapmate Chess. Mate your opponent with an illegal move. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

One variant of 'illegal move': A move 'seems to be legal' until the move has been finished. For example, pick up a pawn that is about to promote, move it to the promote square, then pick it up again, put it outside the board, pick up a queen - and put it any where on the board. Capturing illegal move will not be possible because the opponent could declare the illegality of your move once his piece is touched, before being kicked out of the board.
