Game 07 – (Archbishop and Unicorn) – Musketeer Chess


Good example of some “Blitz” attacks using the Leaping pieces in Musketeer Chess. At a certain point white wasn’t too precise when playing but overall it’s a good game.

Special note for the Capture of the Bishop c8. Black’s Archbishop is captured at the same time (only double capture possible during a game) = When you capture a non developed piece (piece B or Bishop) you capture also the piece in reserve (Piece A, here the Archbishop) supposed to enter the game when B first moves !!

So be careful of forks or sacrifices permitting such manoeuvres !!

Game 06 – (Hawk and Unicorn) – Musketeer Chess


White spoiled a good position. Here we see the incredible strength of the Hawk with his forking abilities .
It’s also ideal to a mating attack with the Bishop against the fianchetto ! Enjoy ! A nice win for Black.

Game 05 – (Leopard and Elephant) – Musketeer Chess


Even after gaining a good strategical position, there are so many tactical possibilities that you can loose your north easily.

Stay focused all the game and don’t forget “simple tactics (pins)”. White was better, then got worse (probably losing). Black underestimated the Elephant and Rook coordination. A good example of how to use these pieces. A nice win for White.

Game 04 – (Chancellor and Archbishop) – Musketeer Chess


Building a slow attack, then breaking through black’s position with a good Chancellor Queen cooperation. The win is matter of technique !
