Grable Plays 4-Player Chess (Mini)

Playing 4-player chess, on chess.com. This variant is “ThroneWar Mini” a faster version of the classic “War For Throne” variants. The game rules are 3-check, king of the hill (more details below). This time, we play two shorter games with time controls of 1 minute (initial time) and 3 seconds added to your clock per move. Hope you enjoy, and please let me know if you’d like to see more.

ThroneWar Mini: Each player starts with 8 pawns which can promote to kings on the 3rd rank, and one “Royal” king. For the purposes of king-of-the-hill, and standard chess moves, only the royal king functions the same way a king does in regular chess. All others are essentially pawns that can move in any direction, 1 space. Capturing a pawn counts as 1 point, kings=3 points, and giving checkmate counts as 40 points. If all other players lose on time, or if a royal king makes it to one of the centre 4 squares, all remaining kings are checkmated. Stalemated kings are also awarded their own 40 points.

The time control in this version was a bit faster than last week’s, and we’re able to fit in two games. I would encourage anyone who thinks this looks like fun to log on and try it out!

  5. Honestly satisfaction to see yellow in game 2's elo tank 20 points. I am super glad camping isn't a valid strategy at all.

  6. so your being anti-social and a rules lawyer in the non-competive gamemode, which makes the match boring so nobody can have fun. also you just hand 2nd place wins to high rated player becouse your prejudice.

  7. "Promoting is good."
    A motto I live my life by.
