An uncastled player should get a scoring and or rating bonus when they beat a castled player. Agree?

Onderwerp: Chess variants and Chinese Chess (Xiangqi)
Hi Chess folks,
as BrainKing provides the opportunity to test 37 chess variants, many of you might have done so. You probably developed a passion for some kind of variant other than International Chess. Or the other way: You became frustrated by not knowing the keys to chess variants (like e.g. Chinese Chess) and stick to the more familiar chess now.
Recently, an introduction to Chinese Chess was published which is addressed mainly to Chess players. You may find it helpful. Chess and Xiangqi are compared in more detail than just the way how to move pieces. Especially recommended for beginners.
See yourself:
Introduction to Chinese Chess (XiangQi) for Chess Players
Use the features of BrainKing and play!
I wish you some success and more fun.

The longest game could be 1200 days =3 years and 3 months based on the average game with 40 moves and time control is 30 days a move.
if both players doing the same thing it will be 2400 days. HOW MANY YEARS?

So what gives? Why the sudden appearance and in the top 100 when just a few weeks ago BrainKing wasn't even on the chart? I wish the chess-links site would explain the column headings and maybe write up something.

Think you mean 50 moves. Brainking does not automatically agree a draw but Fencer will make the game a draw if you request it and your opponent will not agree otherwise.
