Dark Chess 960

April 26th, 2008 by Crusader

The Linux Game Tome pointed out a new project, Dark Chess 960, from davewx7, who’s maintained The Battle for Wesnoth and the SilverTree RPG projects:

Simply, the rules are as normal chess, but where certain information is hidden from you. So-called “Fog of War”. You can only see your own pieces, as well as any square that any of your pieces can move to. Your vision is updated at the beginning of each turn. Because you can’t see where your opponent’s pieces are, you don’t know if you’re in check. As such the game has no concept of ‘check’! Instead, the objective is to capture the enemy king. If you do this, you win instantly. Thus, safeguarding your king is extremely important.
