There are a total of four events:-
As same as the international standards. Goal of the game is to checkmate the opponent king. Result includes draw or win.
The objective of each player is to lose all of his pieces or to be stalemated.
The rules are the same as those for standard chess, except for the following special ones:
Capturing is compulsory.
When more than one capture is available, the player may choose which piece to capture.
The king has no royal power and accordingly: It may be captured as any other piece; There is no check or checkmate; There is no castling.
In addition to its normal promotion options, a pawn may be promoted to a king. Stalemate is a win for the stalemated player.
The rules are the same as the international standards. The only extra rule included is for every 5 moves the board will be interchanged i.e., the participants need to play the opposite colour pieces for the next 5 moves and so on. Goal of the game is to checkmate the opponent king. Result includes draw or win. Do not make light of your opponent, since you might just end up playing against yourself.
Three player Chess:
As the name suggests this can be played by 3 people at a time. This uses a specially designed HEXAGONAL board. Rules are same as the international standards .The introduction of a third player drastically alters the style of play even when standard pieces are used. Each player must think twice as far ahead—anticipating the moves of both opponents. If a player trades off pieces with a second player, the third player benefits. So, players should make trades wisely.
At the end of stipulated time, the participant who is leading will be declared as the winner. The event manager’s decision will be the final.
