    ...when you discover that your opponent isn't playing the same game as you

    Hmm... Ok, in this case, it occurred to me that this was not a regular chess game, this was more pacman than chess and with every move he was getting closer to some kind of bizarre moral victory and had to be stopped.

    So if one player has full use of pieces, the other can only use king and pawns. How many ranks can the latter (black or white) king move before being stopped?

    Game 1559712 there you go

    That's very messed up. He might even think that he's won.

    Nah, i've played slippytoad before and he knows when he's won... I suspect that this was more an experiment in chess aesthetics...

    He obviously knows how the pieces moves. Look at his previous games. Get out your pieces and mate him already.

    Already done - bad practice to discuss a game in progress.
