Linking the world wide webchess
Sometime ago (this sentence is getting old one day per day) I thought of new abstract
game, called Gonnect, where you apply the GO rules in order to connect two opposite sides
of the 19x19 go board. Almost instantly I take that idea and reuse it on chess.
- All Chess rules apply except in the following:
- Definition: A Link between 2 pieces (at least one must not be a pawn)
occur when one of them could move to the other's square (if it was empty) and they do not
share the same rank.
- A player wins if he can create a link between a set of his pieces from the 1st to the
last rank of the board.
note: A player cannot create a link with two consecutive pawns, they are just
used has nodes between two non pawn pieces.
