Extinction Chess

This game (by the way, great invention of Mr. R. Wayne Schmittberger) follows the same rules as the standard Chess (starting position and piece movement) with these differences:
  • There is no check or checkmate.
  • The player who captures all opponent's pieces of one kind, i.e. all eight pawns, both knights etc., wins the game.
  • It is also possible to capture the opponent's king (and that finishes the game immediately since the king is the only piece of its kind). Because there is no check, a king can move to a square which is attacked by an opponent's piece or make a castling through such square.
  • Pawns can be promoted to any piece including a king. However, if the player promotes his/her last pawn, loses the game because he/she loses all pieces of one kind - pawns.
