Switching Realms Chess. All noncapturing moves must change the board subset a piece occupies. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

However, there is a nice Switcheing Realms Queen: If one takes the
horizontal move from the erl queen a different kind of switching piece
emerges: It must switch between odd and even ranks. Thus, mfb(slipQ)cQ
is a nice Switching Realms Queen.

In the same way, mDDffbbNcRN is a nice Separate Realms Chancellor, bound
to odd or even ranks while moving.

I have considered the erl queen (as I prefer to call the slip queen),
but discarded it because it is off-theme: it can triangulate, what
a switching piece cannot.

I drafted the erl queen for the sweeping switchers, because there I
a piece with the can-mate property.

Antother fine Separate Realms variant. This should be a very close match with the Separate Realms II army, with more raw power but poorer developement. If it's a little too strong, using a Slip Queen instead of the SwR Chancellor should even it up.
