Shane and Dr. Egregious VS Taylor and Charlotte

Shane and Dr. Egregious VS Taylor and Charlotte

As the chessboard is of larger size than normal, squares are a bit different. A-1 and N-14 are black squares, while N-1 and A-14 are white squares. (Coincidentally, H-8 is still a black square, while H-1 and A-8 are still white squares.)

The setup will be the same as the one here, and the rules mostly similar to Verney's game... but not entirely, since it's easy to get confused. (Hope no-one minds...)

- Players that sit opposite of each other form a team, and turns alternate in a clockwise order. (White, Red, Black, Blue, in this case; since White always starts.)
- Both enemy Kings must be checkmated to win; other outcomes are a draw.
- If a player is mated, his/her pieces cannot move, and may also not be captured by anyone. These pieces are considered not to give check.

Things that are different from Verney's game; mouse over to see differences between this game and Verney's game:

- Pawns have an initial double step.
- If they're blocked by a pawn from the partner, they may jump over it, even if both pawns move in the same direction, provided the destination is empty. (A White Pawn on e5 and a Black Pawn on e6, with the two colors being allied, for instance, allows the Pawn to jump from e5 to e7.)
- When a pawn reaches the end of the board, he reverses direction.
- Pawns only promote when they reach a square at the back rows of the opponents, and just like in orthodox chess, they can promote to Rook, Knight, Queen or Bishop.
- Castling is allowed.
- Switching seats after White's first move (i.e. red's player playing blue and vice versa) isn't allowed. It'd get too confusing for me. (And possibly other people.)

Other rules are as in orthodox chess.


Knowing Taylor and Charlotte, they'd pick Red and Blue, respectively...
I'll wait first for the other players to state their opinion of those things above before I make a move of any kind.

Just to clear this up, a white pawn would promote on A11, B11, C11, L11, M11, or N11, or if it reaches the end and reverses direction, A4, B4, C4, L4, M4, or N4?

Um. No.
A White or Black Pawn can only promote if it reaches the A- or N-files.
Reaching the 01- or 14-ranks will just make them reverse direction.

...

That does clear things up... right?

I'm okay with it. :)
Taylor is as well; she'd have posted here but she's sound asleep right now.
Still wonder why she hates planes now, though... :-\


Ah, nostalgia. It has been weeks since I last came here... and now that I'm back, I'll just poke around here.

Poke.

One thing we should probably settle before we start: how much table talk is allowed?  For instance, should I be allowed to tell Shane "Hey, Charlotte's about to take your rook." or "Better capture that knight for me, or Taylor can finish me in three moves."?  Personally I'd rather we didn't allow table talk beyond "Nice move!" and the like, but I'll play along with whatever we agree to.   :)

I'd prefer using the personal messenger for things like "Charlotte's going to capture the White Bishop with her own Bishop" or "if Dr. Egregious moves his Queen to h08 then Taylor's going to have to spend a turn getting out of check", but it's Shane's choice. :)


All I know is, I'm going to sit back, wait patiently for my turn while listening to The Hidden Curse from Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin and enjoy the match. :P

So you're listening to two songs at the same time, Charlotte? :P


Dr. Egregious and Charlotte, you both made rather good points.

Things like "Hey, Charlotte's about to take your queen." or "Better capture that knight, or Taylor can finish you in three moves." will be limited to PMs, while things like "Nice move!" and "Outstanding!" can be posted freely.

Okay, so table talk is allowed, but it's to be confined to PMs.  Deal.   :)

Alright then. Let's start this match!

... We'll probably each need a team name, though :))
For Shane and Dr. Egregious' team, will it be "Darkice" or "Nightchill", or will it be "Blackfrost" or "Corruptionblizzard"?
Or will they have a different team name?

Or will they have a different team name?
"Darkice" = Sneasel and Weavile. That's probably why Shane thought that one up. :P
And because it's a combination of Dr. Egregious and Shane's first elements (Darkness and Ice, respectively).

Anyway, Charlotte and I chose our team name too; Charlotte didn't like it but she said it might help her get over her phobia.
I also find it rather funny that Dr. Egregious hasn't made Black's pieces in lowercase yet. :))

Speaking of sons; I've been meaning to ask about this forum's policy on swearing; I've noticed everyone's language is uncommonly clean.   :D

Quick question about the rules: can teammates capture each other's pieces?  I ask because it's going to be quite tricky to promote pawns unless you've got a teammate willing to sacrifice a piece or two to serve as stepping stones.

Oh hey, Taylor switched her and Dr. Egregious' places at that list-thing between the chessboard and the notation. :o
Probably to match the turn order.

Speaking of sons; I've been meaning to ask about this forum's policy on swearing; I've noticed everyone's language is uncommonly clean.   :D
As far as I know, the forums automatically censors some words regardless of whether the "leave words uncensored" option is on or off; the f-word would be replaced with ****, for instance.
However, apparently Taylor got past that. Not sure how, though.

Quick question about the rules: can teammates capture each other's pieces?  I ask because it's going to be quite tricky to promote pawns unless you've got a teammate willing to sacrifice a piece or two to serve as stepping stones.
Wikipedia says: "The most common form of play is two vs. two in which allied pieces cannot eliminate each other."
I'm going to guess we're going with that.

Yep. No friendly fire / friendly capturing.
Unless, of course, they get turned into zombies and start an apocalypse. :))

Yeah. That way, I can't get confused, thinking, "oh, hey, shouldn't Dr. Egregious play before it's my turn?" or something like that.
I approve of that, Taylor. - Charlotte~

Check, Taylor.

(I'd post the chessboard here, but due to my left hand getting stung by a bee earlier, my hand hurts a lot; just moving it hurts. I hope nobody minds that I ignore the chessboard posting.)

Shane.
Change your custom title from "Seeker of the Truth, Nightmare to the Evil" to "Seeker of the Truth, Nightmare to the Evil and Bane of Villainous Plans". :P
I can already tell Dr. Egregious' move will be devastating even more than your move, Shane, but really, it's not much, in my opinion.

I'd not react the same way as I would if I saw an old man wrestling with a deer.

... If I might ask, unrelated table talk (like off-topic stuff not related to chess) are allowed, right?


(I'd post the chessboard here, but due to my left hand getting stung by a bee earlier, my hand hurts a lot; just moving it hurts. I hope nobody minds that I ignore the chessboard posting.)
Heh, neither of the forum doctors would be able to do something about that, right?
Anyway, I hope you feel better soon. (Hopefully the instant you read this post.)

I won't be posting the chessboard, I'm afraid I might make a colossal sleep-deprivation-induced error here :))

Pawn to l05.

Good night.

(How can Taylor, Dianke and Lily cope with being awake well after midnight? :o That makes no sense.)

How sad...
I e-mailed my move to Shane, yet nothing happens. :(

Oh well, here I am again, ready to continue the match.

Ah, nostalgia. It has been weeks since I last came here... and now that I'm back, I'll just poke around here.

Poke.

Shane, I can still use Quick Edit.
That's not a glitch, is it? I mean, I've been demoted (permanently; though Shane intended it to be temporary and I'd rather not be admin again just in case I get mad again and do something insanely stupid) so I'm not supposed to be able to Quick Edit your posts...

(Okay, that no longer applies, I'm admin again.)
