Lost 14 pieces to none - but win in 16

SPOILER ALERT! Neat-looking problem. Position would have needed a lot of cooperation, which someone could perhaps document for us. Seems h3 is the key and don't let Black move any pawns.

Beacon Chess

This blog post details a variation of chess called Beacon Chess.

In normal chess, pieces usually can not alter their basic move pattern based on what pieces are around them. What I mean by that is that a queen will always have the same mobility as a rook combined with a bishop no matter what pieces surround the queen. So too, a pawn can only move one square forward or diagonally if capturing, and this almost never changes. The only times it does is with en passant for pawns and castling for rooks and kings. These special moves allow the constituent pieces to make moves that would otherwise be illegal.

In Beacon Chess however, the mobility or possible moves a piece can make is actually altered by what pieces are around it. The move abilities of a…

A game made an event entirely devoted to Chess

Yup, you heard me. A game made an entire Battle Pass season out of Chess, which is pretty cool and unusual.

If you're not familiar with Pixel Gun 3D, it is a Minecraft-style shooting game available for iOS and Android. They have a Battle Pass in this game, and as of the post date of this blog, the most recent season is Chess Season. It includes Chess themed items, such as weapons, structures and trails.

In my opinion, though a Chess themed season would be cool, I wish it was a back to school season because right now would've been a perfect time for it.

If you want to read about this season, you can see here: w:c:pixelgun:Battle_Pass#Chess_Season.

Adopting the Wiki

Do you guys mind if I adopt the wiki? The admin was inactive for like a decade, and this wiki needs to be monitored. I'm very good at keeping the wiki organized and I'm also good at designing the wiki. If you let me adopt the wiki, then I will keep this wiki clean and even colorful and it will be more organized than before. 

BTW, I'm 80% stronger than average players in chess, so I can give very well-written strategy as of how to win in chess. :)

Tactic Suggestion

A good tactic below!

Hi. I, Ninjakai6478, love chess. I've been playing for a long time, and am quite good. I came up with an extremely effective tactic I call, "Flight oof the Pawns", in which you release pawns first, then use a queen to chase the king, and checkmate with a pawn. It is quite easy to perform, is an efficient tactic, and most of all, Extrmely Effective. I have used this tactic to defeat my friends, and it works every time.

  • Move the pawns (all) over time.
  • Move queen to opposite side of the board.
  • Chase king with Queen.
  • This causes the king to expose itself to the pawns.
  • Chase king with queen until a pawn gets checkmate.
