Not drawing Liff either (obviously). 🙂
This may change once the more ‘novel’ events appear (synchronised swimming, gymnastic ribbons, dressage) but, unless the closing ceremony features Doctor Who or such, this is the end of the Olympic Liffs. 🙂
Having watched a few BattleChess sessions now, the rules seem to be:
- Each player has two or three chess sets.
- The kings stand away from the battle (typical! ;-))
- A player (white on the first move, winner on subsequent moves) brings forth four pieces.
- The opposing player brings forth their four.
- Each piece has a value and the combined value of your four players is what counts.
- If your total beats theirs, their pieces are removed from the battlefield.
- If it’s a tie, a coin is tossed to determine the winner.
- The winner, naturally, is the player with pieces still standing.
The rules continually evolve as flaws in playability are detected. 🙂
I love this ingenuity and thought it worth sharing!
