Bifocal Chess. A game without capture : win by checkmate with a neutral piece! (9x9, Cells: 81) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Bifocal and my Dice-Mate Chess were both invented under the constraint that Roberto Lavieri laid down last summer for no captures. This Bifocal implementation utilizes my two favourite chess pieces, Falcon and Cannon/Canon. I wonder whether Falcon could also be worked as a variation into Fourriere's two games I played in Game Courier, Jacks and Witches highly-recommended and Pocket-Polypiece43, the latter on a larger-than-43-square board that Fourriere once speculated about.
