4 PLAYER CHESS | FFA Absolute Madness!!

I apologize in advance for all the mistakes made during the making of this 4 PLAYER CHESS video.

Four Player Chess Rules

Free For All
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!
If a position is repeated 5 times the game will auto-draw and reward +10 to all remaining players
If 100 plys are made without a capture or pawn move the game will end immediately and award +10 to all remaining players
If Stalemate occurs the stalemated player will be removed and +10 will be rewarded to all the remaining players
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. Wow, they had so many opportunities to take you. You earned that one

  2. You are so lucky to play with weak players:)

  3. Green neglects to capture your king, and then immediately after, yellow passes on your queen?! Wow!

  4. Well done, Dubious! It is enjoyable to watch you play. Keep up the live commentary! It makes the game thrilling.

  5. Just to let you know, I prefer the team variant

  6. Good shit my man. You inspired me to put up my own 4 player chess vid. I'm no where near ranked as high as you though. Good shit!

  7. Heyy just saying i prefer FFA to teams by far. Mainly because you re better at it so i can watch and learn. Also because teams is basically x amount of moves were you dont know whats happening before a “oh theres a mate” then you win not really knowing how. I think you should play teams but not on youtube and when you really know whats happening start making vids. Anyway i really like your vids keep it up the more you upload the happier I am. GL

  8. Hey Dubious, loving the content still! And sorry I haven't been able to comment or watch either yours or lone wolf's videos but have unfortunately been in the hospital almost 2 weeks now. But I do plan to catch up on both of your channels asap. Keep up the good work my friend!

  9. Lol.. pure luck there mate. You literally came back from the dead 😂

  10. Hahahahahaha, you look up luck or fortune in the dictionary and right there´s this game.
