Having some quiet time at work, Chris wanted another try at Tile Chess. Chris is a seasoned Chess player and the idea of the game clearly intrigued him. We chose to play the quick version where each player gets 3 pawns and 1 piece of each other type. We set up the game and started. Chris found himself trying to apply regular chess strategy onto Tile Chess – a ploy which will almost surely fail because of some of the board constraints. Chris continually found that he was pinning his pieces in place because they would not be able to move and still observe the Unity Rule so that all the pieces on the board remained in contact. After losing a rook and a bishop on consecutive turns because he was not able to move the pieces out of jeopardy, it was not long for Checkmate. Still a good quick Chess variant.
