4 PLAYER CHESS | FFA All opponents above 1700 (kinda)

Strong opposition and not a smooth ride
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. @22:30 check with your rook on i1 is mate right!? Poor performance by you this time i must say. But you still win haha. Well done

  2. Good video! I see you have encountered legendary shineko. No surprise that he had a bunch of weird surprises this game… And I’m sure it was him that disabled chat given a few games I’ve played with him recently.

  3. please link this app or website address. I am very interested to play 4 player chess. so please help me

  4. Man, you can play 10 or 12 passive moves (or "solid" moves, if you rather), to develop, consolidate and such, but 50 or 60 passive moves, that´s disgusting, just disgusting.
    I rather lose a game full of beautiful blows and amazing turns and twists than win playing chicken-style.
