    Can somebody please explain to me clearly what the point of a siege is, as black and as white, because I can not seem to grasp the concept of what the description of "defend the board for as long as possible" is supposed to mean.

    Thanks.

    Ever play "King of the Hill"?

    On second thought, maybe many people haven't heard of this interesting "childhood" game.

    Having a small/tall mound of dirt is the playing field. A guy goes to the top and proclaims himself "King of the Hill". Of course all of the other players can't have that, so the game is to overthrow the "King" and become the "King" yourself!

    Simple concept really, dirty business this game.😉

    Is the actual siege just a normal chess game?

    Yes, with the exception of the winner is the "King" of the board and defends (plays Black) against all comers one at a time, that's why the queue list. More rules about draws and such are at the Seige page: http://www.redhotpawn.com/siege/index.php
