Dark Chess

Dark Chess is very interesting chess variation which is virtually impossible to play on "real" boards because of the "dark" feature - it means that each player can see only a part of the whole board. The squares that are visible to the player must follow one of these conditions:
  • A player's piece stands on that square.
  • The player can move a piece to that square. This means that he/she can see empty squares that he/she can move to, or an opponent's piece that he/she can capture.
  • The square is directly in front of one of player's pawns or it is an adjacent forward diagonal from one of player's pawns.

The following pictures show a game situation from white and black's point of view:


The rules are the same as for standard Chess with the following differences:
  • There is no check or checkmate. Each player can freely move his/her king to a check position.
  • The player who captures the opponent's king, wins the game.
