Chess Variants/Monster Chess
Introduction[edit | edit source]
Monster Chess (also known as Super King Chess) is an asymmetric variant where White is allowed to move twice per turn.
History[edit | edit source]
It is not known where monster chess came from, but we know it is a rather recent variant.
Rules[edit | edit source]
Monster chess is played like an asymmetrical version of the standard game, with one important difference - to compensate for the severe disadvantage in material, White is allowed to move twice per turn, rather than once. White may move one piece twice, or two pieces once.
The white king is allowed to use its two moves to pass through check, provided it ends on a square not under attack.
A king is considered to be in check is the opponent could execute a legal move or pair of moves that would result in the king being captured.
Otherwise, standard chess rules apply.
