Chess+. Players choose when and where to place their pieces behind the pawns.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Hi David,

Chess+ just so happened after I had stopped inventing games and Nick became more active in the games business. It has been done from an inventor's point of view, not from a Chess player's. So it may seem more rigorous. It allows bishops to be entered on the same sub-grid because disallowing it requires an additional rule. After all, legal Chess positions are possible with bishops on the same sub-grid.

We think it works better than Fischer's brainchild but we fear that this will not represent any future majority.
