EXPANDED CHESS FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM

    Game Sheets

    Since there will be a vast array of combinations of new chess games when
    the guidelines of Expanded Chess are applied, it will be necessary to
    create a system to catalog each new version of Expanded Chess. It will be
    necessary to tag the major parameters of any new game to describe the
    game properly. The major parameters include:
  • the dimensions of the game board
  • the number of rows occupied at the start of the game
  • the number of players per side
  • the pieces each player can move
  • the number of moves in turn for each side
  • the total number of pieces per side
  • the number of types of pieces
  • the location of each piece at the start of the game
  • the number of each type of piece
  • the piece being checkmated
  • the pieces available for promotion
  • the arrangement of the pieces on the game board
  • the rewards and penalties of capture
  • the rewards and penalties of check
  • special rules

    In order to define a new game in Expanded Chess, Game Sheets 1 through
    9 are provided.  Game Sheet 1A is completed with data for traditional
    chess as an example. The requirements for each item described are listed
    in the right hand section of the table. Game Sheet 1B is completed by
    placing each piece in its proper location on the game board at the start of
    the game. All games start from the bottom left corner in square a01 with
    the white side along the bottom rows of the board. The black side is placed
    in the appropriate location in the upper board based on the size of the
    game board regardless of the 16x16 size of the game board used in Game
    Sheet 1B.  The 16x16 board size is used to envelope the entire range of
    board sizes available in Expanded Chess (there are 26) with the use of one
    full-sized, 16x16 board. Game Sheet 1B is also completed for traditional
    chess. Game Sheets 2 through 9 provide a completed set of game
    descriptions and game arrangement sheets for the all the new Expanded
    Chess games.
