Not a Dodgson System Chess. Four player variant, using Alice chess movement. Win by taking most of the eliminated players pieces. (7x6x2, Cells: 84) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This looks amusing.  It does seem that the scoring system encourages the
other players to turn on the first player significantly damaged like 
starving wolves, lest they be left without any pieces of the eliminated
player when it comes time to score.  Not a game to play with someone who
takes attacks personally!

An omnidirectional Pawn is actually mWcF -- mFcW is an omnidirectional
Berolina Pawn.
