Hi all,

I have an interesting game. I arrange Chinese chessmen into international chess board and play normally with its rule. Of course there is some drawback for the pawn. Since there is no border between two countries here, it’s hard for the pawn to go ahead without being killed by the pawn of the enemy sides. However, it’s so amusing to get involved in it. Similarity, I arrange international chessmen into Chinese chess board to play. In this case, there is an extra line in the middle – the border which makes the progress of the play more difficult to control.

Anyway, we can try. Very amusing

I never thought about playing chess on uncolored squares. Takes additional concentration figuring the diagonals, for sure ...
