4 player chess Rules

Pieces move and capture like always (though there is no en passant at this time)
Points are usually earned by capturing live (colored) pieces:
Pawns: +1
Knights: +3
Bishops and Rooks: +5
Queens: +9
Kings are +20
Checkmate eliminates a player and earns +20 points
Your pawns promote to Queens on your 8th rank (at the center of the board)
Promoted Queens are worth only 1 point
Dead (grey) pieces in the armies of eliminated players do not provide points
Delivering a double-check is worth +5, and triple-checks are worth +15
When a player resigns or times out, leaving two or more active players on the board, their King remains live and is still worth +20 to whoever can capture it; but if there are only two players remaining, the remaining player will be given +20 points
The player with the most points at the end, wins!
Stalemate will result in +20 for whoever caused it (including the stalemated player)
The current time control is 1 minute with a 15 second delay. That means each player has 15 seconds to complete their move and after 15 seconds their total game time will start ticking down. Players are eliminated when their time runs out!


  1. Very instructive, plus excellent luck blundering the queen and its not getting captured.

  2. If you resign you don't get any points? Green resigned and came in 2nd but his rating didn't change.

  3. nice practical play and interesting comments

  4. very nice commentary and insight 🙂 i learned a lot watching this video, can't wait to play this game

  5. Dude it's unwatchable. Feels like watching sb playing french exchanged and being so proud of himself he is solid.
    Basically you won only because other people allowed you to. Queen and bishop up and you can't make any threats or influence over the course of game for a long time.
    Watched 1 of your videos and i know im not gonna watch another. Cheers.

  6. You are the petrosian of 4 player chess, no fashy play, just solid defence for the win
