Torpedo Chess

Post by scooter »

Subtle but interesting variant: pawns can now move one or two spaces forward anywhere they are on the board. That's it. :nerd:

Capturing is still as normal, one space diagonally.

There's also a corresponding change in en passant capture, which is now enabled anywhere on the board, provided the captured piece is a pawn which had just moved two spaces forward.
This has been another bit of brain shrapnel from...

I'm pretty sure we played this variation back in chess club in high school. We only had so long to play so we coupled this with hurrying a lot (without the time clock).
