The play would be incredibly sharp and tactical ...[text shortened]...
In this variant, there would thus be no castling, so it would be simpler to learn the rules.
Ok..... let's make it really simple.
8 pawns, 8 Kings.
Normal rules for pawns, but not King as King can take King, because King can approach K adjacent square.
"Last Man Standing" comes to mind.
OH! And if you promote a pawn.... you get a ...... you guessed it....King. 😀 😀
Shall we play chequers with golf rules instead? 😲
Edit: Actually, on further thought, my game sounds a lot more interesting and revolutional than yours... anybody care to set one up? 😏
Edit2: please don't.... check by pawns only would just be an impossible joke... RFLMAO
