Interesting chess variant: Kriegspiel

Each player can see their own pieces, but not those of their opponent. For this reason, it is necessary to have a third person (or computer) act as an umpire, with full information about the progress of the game. When it is a player's turn he or she will attempt a move, which the umpire will declare to be 'legal' or 'illegal'. If the move is illegal, the player tries again; if it is legal, that move stands. Each player is given information about checks and captures. They may also ask the umpire if there are any legal captures with a pawn.

I've seen it live OTB once, it seemed really enjoyable!


but there need to be a 3th one to say if one can take material pawn tries etc so this variant is perfectly playable with these boards on discord with voice

Isn't a software able to be the third?

blitz players, join to tournament!soon I will be holding a tournament between the team members. It will be on the classics, 3 + 0, rating. who will participate must sign up. when there is a beginning, I will tell who plays with whom in the forum. rules ....... 1) everyone plays for himself! 2) do not cheat. 3) report results. 4) it is necessary to agree with the opponent and play at the appointed time. 5) only 4 games are played. 6) if there are NOT EVERY quantity of players, then the weakest player is removed by rating !!! GOOD LUCK! I will divide all into pairs those who win play among themselves and losers too. The winner of those who won the final will meet the winner of the losers. если счет 2:2,то играется еще 1 партия НЕИЗВЕСТНЫМ цветом. if the score is 2: 2, then another 1 game is played with UNKNOWN color!players at the moments---1)Matfey ---2104 2)TheHiddenHand---1717 3)kbcslobo---2223
