I've been on BGG for a couple of months and I just realized that I was 1/2 of a team that wrote an article on how to combine RoboRally and Chess! I can't reprint the article here because it was published in Pyramid Online and is available only to subscribers: http://www.sjgames.com/pyramid/

I figured that it should at least be mentioned here as a potential variant, lest the notion be lost to the annals of history!

The link goes to Pyramid magazine, but searching doesn't find your article. So, what name is it under? (I'm not yet a subscriber to Pyramid, if that makes a difference.)

You need to be a subscriber to Pyramid to read it. Sorry.

Why pay for a gaming site when there are so many quality free sites, like BGG, which are free?

I'm sorry, but saying that there's a variant out there that I need to pay for to get is truly useless information. At least post something pertaining to the variant and how it plays.

The information you've given is not enough for me to even consider subscribing.

The variant is named RoboChess.

It combines turns of chess with a RoboRally board.

Essentially, you and your opponent have chess pieces. And you play across a RoboRally board based on certain specific rules outlined in the article. The chess pieces are affected by the environment and the robots in play.

The link to the article preview (which only gives the first couple of paragraphs, that happen to be pre-rules fluff text) is here:
http://www.sjgames.com/pyramid/sample.html?id=1601

The article itself begins with fluff, so no rules are apparent in the article preview. I have no control over the magazine site, which owns the written article.
