Korean Chess: presentation plus a strong Zillions implementation.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]M Winther wrote on 2006-11-09 UTCIn his Encyclopedia of Chess Variants, 1994, David Pritchard briefly tells that: 'A player may pass his turn, hence no stalemate or zugzwang.' (p.164). In his article 'Janggi Addenda', Abstract Games 15, Autumn 2003, Malcolm Maynard writes: 'Passing turns. It was not mentioned in the article that in Janggi, players *can* pass their turn, unlike in other forms of Chess. The official rule of the Korean Janggi Association is that players may pass their turns at any time. However, since a player would normally pass a turn to avoid being forced into moving into a losing position, many players interpret the rule to allow a player to pass only to avoid checkmate or stalemate.
