Erm, I'd be in if you'd have me. I know chess fairly well and won't say I actually remember popular strategies, but do enjoy a good game. ^^
You are more than welcome dear
With that we are at 7 players:
admerwill and thaleia may still join in any time.
I think now we should elaborate on how to run it and in the meantime i hope someone else will drop in :)
Mnemaxa's idea seems reasonable to me, with our current player count.
In more detail:
Player1 controls: rook @a1, knight @b1, pawn @a2 and @b2
Player2 controls: bishop @c1, queen, pawn @c2 and @d2
Player3 controls: king, bishop @f1, pawn @e2 and @f2
Player4 controls the remaining four pieces.
The same goes for black.
I am thinking of starting one generic OOC thread, one black OOC thread, one white OOC thread and of course the main game thread.
If you all agree on that, i will do so tomorrow.
BTW here's the board, unfortunately i couldn't find any naughty pieces, so we may as well go with the classic ones.
