a friend and I recently concocted this perhaps maddening, amusing, chess variant i call "resurrecting chess". The came is played on a with a standard chess set. The game is begun with only kings on the board. set in their usual spots. every turn a player receives a token, tokens are used to buy peices
of his colour (from the set only). when bought, a peice can be placed anywhere on the board (where there is not a peice) as the an entire action of ones turn. the exception is pawns which cannot be placed on the back two ranks. Currently, we play with the rule that you can buy as many pieces as you like in one turn. but this may change. there is no pawn promotion.
play for mate
the pricing is as follows:
