Greetings!
The rules are simple: This is a game of chess.

BUT! So long as the three-post rule is adhered to, anyone can post the next move for whoever's turn it is. So long as the move is legal. Thus, I highly reccomend following along with a chessboard.

Let the craziness commence!

GAME START! A CHESS PLAYER IS YOU.

1. Pawn to a3

1. ...e5

let's get it on
Also, is the three-post rule what I think it is? I assume allowing someone to make consecutive moves (or consecutive moves for either side) would be gauche.

1. a3 e5

Let's move another pawn.

1. a3 e5
2. c4 Nf6
3. Nc3 d5
4. Qc2 dxc4
5. b4

EDIT:
O right pawns can do that V. I'll go do something I understand now... :smalleek::smallamused: (Although I'd be tempted to take the next move if that didn't break the 3 post rule.)

Black's up on material at this stage, and I'd say they have better development as well, but unfortunately I couldn't find a good forcing move for white.

EDIT: wait is this tournament rules? Because if yes I think that's Checkmate. Otherwise :sad:

The 3-post rule prevents me from making a move, but I believe it doesn't prevent me from quipping that this is, in fact, not a checkmate.

It is if this is tournament rules. Or am I missing something? Besides KxF7, what move can Black make to get out of check here? (Tournament rules include that the King cannot attack, along with the touch rule and I think a couple others.)

Ruslan

Tournament rules include that the King cannot attackThere is no such rule.

There is no such rule.

I don't know if that's actually a rule that is used at tournaments, but "the king cannot attack" is a rule under the heading "tournament rules", the set of which I only learned a week and a half ago. I suppose it isn't checkmate then. Check to black.

That has to be the most ridiculous rule I have ever heard of. The King needs to be able to defend itself. Also, in the end game when all the other pieces are dust the King's offensive power is critical to pushing that one pawn to the eighth rank for a promotion, winning the game.

I realize that it's a weird rule that makes it hard to do well, but it's just what I learned. It doesn't make sense that you can't attempt a parry in D&D unless you're a specific class, but that's the rule. I learned it from someone who presumably knows a lot about chess, and also in a book that presumably knows a lot about chess. I agree that it's a stupid rule, so how about we just stop arguing about it, agree to ignore it, somebody makes a move, and we get back to the point of this thread?

Very well
7. QxF7+ KxF7


White is now a queen down; I suggest resignation by white. Shall we play again ? Or do we want to play it out?

ETA: I suggest the rule you refer to actually means the king cannot take an opponent which is protected by another chessman. A king may never put himself in check. There's no problem with capturing unprotected pieces, however.

Respectfully,

So we're at:
1. a3 e5
2. c4 Nf6
3. Nc3 d5
4. Qc2 dxc4
5. b4 cxb3e.p
6. Qxb3 Bd6
7. QxF7 KxF7

(not making a move until I can set this up on a chess board).

I wouldn't recommend resignation for white, it's still the early game and white theoretically has the advantage on both position and initiative despite being down on material (definitely got the advantage on initiative, I'm just not sure if they can use it). However whoever moves next gets to choose.

I've been in situations like this in game, on both sides of the board, and it's generally not as clear cut as it might seem. Now black does have a decent advantage on either offence or defence (depending on how they choose to use their queen, I tend towards defensive but the board likely prefers offensive queens, most people I've met do*), but it's not insurmountable and somebody is probably going to make a mistake at some point.

* and a defensive queen can be devastating, I just prefer a slow game style that makes me slightly more suited to black.

I mean, I've moved for White and there's nothing STOPPING me from going for Black... I think expecting people to not screw up is unfair. Screwing up is fun.

1. a3 e5
2. c4 Nf6
3. Nc3 d5
4. Qc2 dxc4
5. b4 cxb3e.p
6. Qxb3 Bd6
7. Qxf7+ Kxf7
8. Nf3

I would resign as white, but there seems to be a sentiment to play this one out, so let's do it.

I think a new game would be better than dragging this one out.
