Re: Chexx is online

Why the ridiculously low version of the Hawk (in the rules section)? This must be a typo. I guess most of the pieces listed with value 5 were copy-pasted and not updated to any real value. (E.g.

Re: King + Musketeer piece vs King checkmate-practice applet

I set up an applet where one can practice elementary end-games of King + piece vs King, for many different pieces, including most Musketeer pieces. See http://hgm.nubati.net/rules/EGT.html . The page starts building an end-game table for the selected piece, and then will reply to any move you play ...

[restored topic] Mating in endgames with the Unicorn

[real post date : Sun Aug 19, 2018 9:41 am] When you play an endgame with Unicorn + King vs King, it's in general a draw because the King and Unicorn cannot force the opponent king to go to a corner, sole place where the Unicorn can mate. KU vs K corner mate.png The advise when you are a Unicorn up,...

[restored topic] Hawk mating technique , endgame King + Hawk vs King

[real post date : Sun Aug 19, 2018 8:54 am] This is an example of how to mate using a Hawk in endgames with King + Hawk vs king. Not an easy task, but with the right Hawk “dance” you will prevail.

Musketeer Chess, How to Play

White & Black battle using a classic chess set. We add 2 new pieces. First white chooses from 10 possible pieces (Unicorn, Hawk, Leopard, Cannon, Archibishop, Chancellor, Fortress, Dragon, Spider, Elephant). See the rules for those pieces here: http://musketeerchess.net/games/musketeer/rules/rules-s...
