In political chess (US version) nothing is clear.
The board is not square. It is some random shape. They just cut a slab out of a tree trunk.
There are no 'squares' on the board. Instead, a Rook claims
to be on e4 and there are endless arguments over whether that is truly
Sometimes the game stops for hours because someone starts a 'filibuster'. No one can move during a filibuster.
There are no clocks. The president is surrounded by 4 Rooks wherever he goes. The other rooks don't actually have to attack anything themselves. They have a Bishop launcher on top capable of decimating enemy targets.
There are more colors than just black or white. White has less pieces on the board, but way more Bishop launchers. Brown has many pawns, but no
Bishop launchers. They're not allowed to build any.
