TwentyOneHundredOrBust's blog

What's up gamers, it's time for my first blog post. Think about this:

Chess except on each turn you can move a piece 1/10 of a square instead of to the current squares. Each piece is limited to the range of motion afforded by their moves in chess 1.0 (which we now refer to as "Lame chess"). Like if you had a horse then you could move it in the direction represented by the <2, 1> vector but instead of being <2, 1> it's scaled down so the magnitude is 1/10. This way not everything is a straight line.

Pieces are represented as coordinate points, which start in the center of the cells that they start in for lame chess. When a piece enters another cell, if there is an enemy piece or pieces in that cell, then all enemy pieces in the cell will be deleted. Note: you can stack your own soldiers in a cell, that's what bunk beds are all about.

Truly this is the most intellectual game of all games. In fact, it's so intellectual that no computer has ever beaten a human in a game of chess 2.0. (That's because no computer has ever played a human in chess 2.0, but we'll leave that fact aside for now.) Compared to pathetic games like chess, go, and arimaa, chess 2.0 is objectively superior. Like, the game tree complexity is through the roof. (Probably. I haven't actually tested it. But if it's not through the roof, just change 1/10 to 1/100 or something; then I can promise you it will be through the roof.) What can I say except intellectual? In other words: big brain gamers only.

Sounds dope huh? As the world champion of chess 2.0 and the player with the most hours logged in game, I'm fully qualified to tell you that this game is absolutely, certifiably awesome. I'm releasing this as an open source (source = this post) donation to the community (I am truly generous, I know).

Chess 2.0. Impress your friends with your intellectual prowess (if you have any). Best game in the universe. Play now, in my codeforces dm's. TwentyOneHundredOrBust out

While hasbro creates mrs monopoly as a game where women do more than men, TwentyOneHundredOrBust creates chess 2.0 where queen is basically the same as king but less valuable.

Btw, what about castling and en passant? How are they performed?

    For en passant, if the enemy pawn moves to the cell that is two units in front of it, then as long as your pawn reaches the cell used to traditionally capture in en passant within 10 moves (the amount of time for one move in lame chess), then it is a successful capture. If the enemy pawn has been in the cell for more than 10 moves, your pawn cannot perform the capture.

    For castling, as long as the traditional chess conditions are satisfied then you can move both the king and the rook at the same time, but also with only 1/10 speed -- so it is like making 2 moves in 1 turn, except they have to be the pieces involved in the castling.
