- You are allowed to move ALL of your chess pieces in a single turn. However, each piece can only move once per turn.
- Each chess piece moves like how it's supposed to move as if it was chess. However, there are
some slight modifications:
- Pawns can move in any direction of 1-2 spaces.
- Bishops can move 1-4 spaces diagonally from their original position.
- Rooks can move 1-4 spaces vertically or horizontally from their original position.
- Queens can only move 1-3 spaces from their original position.
- Kings are immobile because they represent your HQ base. If this falls, you lose.
- Knight move like its normal chess pattern as they can jump over pieces and attack pieces indirectly.
- If there are water terrain blocks, Knights are the only pieces that can jump over these water blocks IF the block is only 1 block wide. The rest of the pieces will have to cross a bridge block or find another way around.
- If there are mountain terrain blocks, Pawns are the only pieces that can navigate through them regardless of how big the mountains are.
- Along with only being able to move once per turn, your pieces may only attack once per turn.
- There are two methods of attacking in this game:
- Direct Attacks: You and your opponent will both engage in direct battle. The player who attacks first will do the set damage that the piece is supposed to do while the player who gets attacked will deal only 1/2 of their potential damage. (Also an idea for direct attacks. For the defender, instead of half damage, you deal damage equal to then fraction of remaining health over total health times the damage you can deal to your opponent).
- Indirect Attacks: THIS CAN ONLY BE DONE BY KNIGHTS. You will engage in an attack against your opponent indirectly. You will deal damage to your opponent, but they will not counter-attack. Also, you cannot move the same turn you use an indirect attack.
- There is also the possible option of adding Defense/Armor to each individual piece that will cause the damage of pieces to be less than expected. However, there won’t be such thing as 0 damage as the minimum damage that all pieces can deal is 1.
- You are allowed to attack the same piece more than once in the same turn with multiple pieces. (Ex: Attacking a Rook with 3 pawns).
- Also, if you direct attack a unit that normally attacks indirectly, like a Knight, it WILL NOT counter-attack.
- When you destroy a piece by attacking it (When it runs out of hp due to your attack), your attacking piece will be placed on the position of the piece that you destroyed to signify a capture.
- One team of chess pieces will be white and the other team of chess pieces will be black.
- However, there is a catch. The order of which color moves first will be randomized to make it fair.
- You are allowed to move your pieces through a space occupied by YOUR OWN CHESS UNIT to get to
a new position. (For example: A bishop going through a rook diagonally to move 2 spaces.
- You cannot move through pieces of the opposing team.
- You may not acquire more chess pieces for your battle. All chess pieces are pre-deployed when placed onto the battlefield and should be equal on both sides before the first move.
- If you have finished moving all of your chess pieces for a turn, you are required to press the button for your team to end the turn.
- How to win the game:
- You must eliminate all chess pieces that your opponent has (not including the king)
- Eliminating/capturing the King results in an automatic victory regardless of how many units are left for your opponent.
