Instant Death Chess
by Guy T. Schafer

Normal chess board.
Normal chess set.

Pieces set up as normal. All pieces move and capture as in normal chess. White moves first.

First player to get his own king in check (by any opposing piece as normal) wins.

Why is there no Word Games Forum or Subdomain?

There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!

1. e3 (or d3, or f3)
2. Ke2 (or d2, or f2)
3. K_3
4. K_4
5. K_5
6. K_6 wins

If black moves d, e, or f pawn, it can be done in one or two fewer moves.

What happens if you play with the normal chess requirement that you cannot put your king into check; either by moving the king or by moving another piece that puts your king into discovered check?

Seems like the game would never terminate, if both players are rational/competent.

What if no piece could ever move backward. And if you cannot make a move, you lose?

The King, far from having to hide in a corner behind protective pieces, can command space by marching all over the board and daring any of the opponents pieces to "Come, look at me!"

Standard "suicide chess" seems better. Compulsory capture, First player to lose ALL his pieces wins. No check, checkmate or stalemate. King is a normal piece.
