Balbo's chess. Board with a strange shape designed to make Bishops stronger in relation to Rooks. (Cells: 68) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Interesting board shape. I'm currently not absolutely sure that bishops are quite as strong as rooks, on average.

I don't know how powerful the bishops are in these game but is still colorbound

Well darn! I designed a similar game with the exact same motivation of better equalizing diagonals with orthogonals, and now I find someone beat me to the punch. Oh well. Must be a great idea!
