~~~What you need
A whole bunch of chess pieces, OR
Some counters (one for each type of chess piece), OR
Six-sided dice (1 - Pawn, 2 - Rook, 3 - Bishop, 4 - Knight, 5 - Queen, 6 - King)
A 6x6 gridSetup
Each player starts with a king, two rooks and three pawns, as shown in the above picture.Objective
Be the first to kill three of the opponent's kings and then checkmate the final king.How to Play
Players take turns (white goes first), moving their pieces. Movement of each piece is shown below, they are pretty much the same as chess, except that pawns can only move horizontally or vertically.
When a piece defeats another piece, two things happen.
Firstly, the defeated piece respawns as a pawn in one of the grey boxes on your own side, unless they are all occupied, where the piece respawns in the nearest white box.
Secondly, the victorious piece upgrades to the next rank: Pawn -> Rook -> Knight -> Bishop -> Queen -> Pawn ->...
A Queen that kills a piece is reset to a pawn, as the information overload causes it to revert to its basic form.
Kings do not change if they kill a piece.
If a King is killed, the King is removed from the board and kept by the attacking player.
The highest ranked piece remaining on the field, at the time then becomes the new King and respawns in the corner square it starts in.
If multiple pieces are of equally highest rank, then the player may choose which piece becomes the new King.
The new King is invulnerable for 1 turn.
Play continues as such, until one player has three Kings. Once three kings from one side have been defeated, the cycle is broken. Then, that player must checkmate the final king. Pieces no longer respawn for the player who has lost three kings.
