Forwards Chess. A variation of FIDE Chess where pieces only move forward. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This is similar to Brickchucking Chess except that pieces aren't allowed to move sideways either. Also, in Brickchucking Chess, when a pawn promotes, it is oriented to move in the other direction. In this game, a pawn that promotes is forever stuck, and would be useless except for it's ability to check backwards.
