I don't want cooldowns, Kung-Fu Chess had that, and it sucks badly.
I was gonna say "put in some randomly spawning powerups then", but I realized that would move it away from actual chess more  Shrug

Played a game and won with a knight left. Smiley I don't know if I'd play this game a lot more, though. But crazy idea, I'll give you that.

I think the instant move resolution is detrimental. I'd rather see some time take place between when you start a move and when it resolves (piece slides over the board instead of teleporting to position). It's not an RTS, it's more like an I(nstant)TS.

It's pretty hilarious though!

I wanted to play this, but I live in Taiwan (GMT +8), which means I was the only one trying to play.

You can just someone to it, and you'll get matched instantly.

Increpare, Terry Cavanagh, Sophie H and I tried this game for a while. Here's what we thought.

- Great!
- Well implemented, works well in Kongregate/Flash.
- Interesting that losing King doesn't lose
- Some sort of delay/timing after taking a move for more strategy?

It's communist - you need to kill everyone, not just the king

Dude, seriously.
That is not communism.
It doesnt' even resemble the common misconceptions about communism.

Sorry for going all political here, but stuff like that is annoying.

Pretty hilarious and frenzied, though in my experience 90% of games turn into 'release rook and swallow everything whole'. Guess you can do the same with a Queen. I started using my Bishops to great effect. Slam over to the other side and zig-zag my way to victory.

I know people are saying don't do cooldowns, etc. But something is required to make is a fun RTS rather than a speed troll.

Perhaps if the piece movement speed was really slowed down, so pieces could be intercepted, etc on their way from one point to another?
