Many Worlds Chess. Large variant, inspired by the many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

It seems to me that Weissman's perfect strategy could be foiled by
allowing non-splitting moves, so that on your turn, you have three options:

1. Make two legal moves on some board, splitting that board.
2. Make a single move on some board.
3. Make a transfer move from one board to another.

Thus, you do not have to use the many worlds feature of this game unless
it is to your advantage.
