Re: NextGen Pawns, how to improve the Classic Chess Pawn

It is not possible to judge pieces for which it is not fully specified how they move. I have for instance no idea what your picture for the Merry Pawn means? How do they capture normally? How do they e.p. capture? Most of the Pawns are not really Pawns, but weak pieces that can roam the entire boar...

Re: NextGen Pawns, how to improve the Classic Chess Pawn

so if a pawn on b2 can go to a4 (move is b2-b3-b4-a4 or b2-b3-a4) a pawn on a3 cannot make an en-passant move !! The en-passant for the NextGen Pawns was adapted for their particular abilities. So when they make a special 2 square advance move the pawn just in front an located 2 squares farther is ...

Re: NextGen Pawns, how to improve the Classic Chess Pawn

For example, even with a Knight like move, the colonel from b2 moving to a4 (possible only if b3 square free) if there is a Black colonel on b4 it can make an en-passant towards ...
