This chess variation differs from the other variations at the first glance. White plays with the normal set of chess pieces, black has only a horde of 32 pawns located exactly as shown at the following picture.
The rules are the same as for normal chess with these differences:
White wins if he/she captures all black pieces. Black wins if he/she checkmates the white king.
If no black piece can make a valid move, the game is a draw (stalemate).
Black pawns can be promoted to a black queen, rook, bishop or knight if they reach the last row (from black's point of view).
Black pawns cannot move two spaces forward from any position except the second rank (from black's point of view).
(hide) If you want to play a game with an opponent of a similar level, you can define a required BKR range for a new game invitation. Then nobody with a BKR outside this range will be able to see/accept it. (Katechka) (show all tips)
