Yep.

I have seen the thread the first time, so I am sorry if I should repeat this points.

I think the king as the most important figure should have a higher autodeploy than the other figures.
And I think it is really complicated that you have to conquer two squares before you can conquer an adjacent figure of the same colour adn it's easier to get an opposing figure on the other side of the board.

Keep up the good work!


+3 for a single territory is a LOT. I made pawns +1 because there are a lot of them and they are the worst piece. Everything else is +2 because it's easy and simple, and this map is already kind of complex. :?

Hmm, actually I'm beginning if the attack rules could be explained slightly more clearly? Or at least change the order around so you know what you CAN attack before being told what you CANNOT. Make sense?

Hmmm :-k

No response from the mapmaker in over a month... I know I've been slack on keeping up to date, but there isn;t anything to keep up to date with :-k

john9blue, we could really do with some updated images, and your thoughts on the most recent feedback...

I'm alive... my spring break is soon and I will finish this during that week. The maps and XML should be fully functional so I think it's a matter of finishing the paperwork so to speak, and maybe rewriting the instructions.

Until then, I'm afraid I've got to put this back on vacation :-(

If you'll pardon me for borrowing your board (and pardon my horrific graphics skills) I like your chess game, and I think there's room for more than one chess map. What I was thinking of was more of a beginning-game setup, where all the pieces were still on the board.

Areas which did not have pieces on them would be divided into regions, and you would earn a bonus for controlling a region of the board with no chess pieces on it. There would be no bonus for controlling individual pieces. All chess pieces would start out as neutral armies (1 for pawn, 3 for bishop or knight, 5 for rook, 9 for queen and 40 for king.) Once you took over a piece, your armies on that square would be restricted to the attacking moves possible from that square. The object would be to take all pieces of a color except the king; or, just the king and queen together.

Armies on empty squares would attack up, down, and diagonally one square (like a king). Adjacent shaded regions could attack each other diagonally.

Frick, I need to finish this map.

Squirrel, I'd be happy to help with the graphics as long as I get credit on the map. You may want to make sure the gameplay is hammered out first though. Also I don't know how the Foundry higher ups would feel about using the EXACT same board as this one, as well as having another map with the exact same theme. I wish you luck though.
