Bottleneck Chess. Most pieces start the game locked up in two bottleneck parts of the board. (Cells: 41) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Bottleneck is created by originator of Perfect Chess, which itself is simply a new array of Betza and Cohen's Tutti-Frutti Chess from the 1970's. Here Pawns are Legan(pre-WWI). No Knight overleap, and they have one way out. Bishops also have only one way out, Rooks and Queens too. So the first eight squares from the Queen could be taken as one-dimensional. Kings can reach each other before anything but two Pawns.
