Turnover match example


Simulating a real Castle with pieces. 

It is easy to grab and move pieces and gives better view to the game.


Now is official: Castle in check moves like traditional Chess King.

In this new feature, a Castle is not dismounted when moving, when in check. Instead of launch his outer ring, the whole set moves to get Castle out of check or not if its not possible. This new rule turns the game more similar to traditional chess and allows draw by stalemate, however, it increases exponentially the difficulty to perform checkmate, because in addition to the usual piece moves like chess, we have turnovers and reconfigurations, which amplify our chances of "saving" a Castle in check in a certain way.

Notes

Turnover Chess Variant Notation

Is a system developed to record all moves. As Turnover pieces have "turnover" special ability, some changes on algebraic notation are needed.

Naming pieces

Move
Moves are indicated by point (.). By the way, for lonely pieces, indicate moves with point is not needed. Ex.: Be5, e5, Ra5

Examples:

Moves resulting in combining friendly pieces:

Turnover
This name defines a special ability's to take opponent's pieces without removing them from board. This move is called turnover.
When a player performs a turnover, this move is indicated with two points (:).

Combining pieces of same color is not considered a turnover, so these kinds of movements are not indicated by two points, but just by its final result. This difference is needed because a turnover is considered a valid move to reset 50 moves’ rule.  

Examples:

Takes
Takes are indicated by letter x.

Example:

Promotion

Check, Mate and Draw

End game
