You are on the backup site for Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

The Chess Variant Pages

Pawn Eaters

This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

When your opponent has no more pawns, you win.  There are no checks or checkmates.  There are Shamanic Rooks that can appear on empty spaces, Pawn Eaters that move like Bishops but capture like Pawns [and cannot be captured by pawns].  There are Old Elephants [upside-down Y-movers] that can move straight forward up to three spaces or backwards diagonally up to two spaces.
