(Under Construction)

You must capture if you can and you win by capturing all opponent pieces.


1. Game Rules

The game is played using standard chess pieces and standard chess initial setup. All chess rules are in place, with two exceptions:

  • if you can capture, you must capture (like in checkers)
  • the king is treated as any other piece

In case you have many captures available, you are free to pick which one to make.

As king is normal piece, there are no checks or mates. There is also no castling. And you may promote to the king if you like.

The side which captures all opponent pieces - wins the game.

If a player can't move (for example has a blocked pawn only) - what some call stalemate, the game is won by the player who has more material. More material means greater number of pieces, whatever their value is.

If you played SuicideChess - the rules are exactly the same, just the result of the game is reversed.


2. Tips & Tricks

Similarity to SuicideChess may be misleading - as the purpose of the game is reversed, completely different strategy must be applied! At the same time - all forced lines are calculated in the same way.

True tips&tricks still to be written.
