For Traditional Chess Players

Traditional chess players, please note the following if using the xChess Relaxed rule:

  • A King can be captured, at any stage, without a Check-Mate prerequisite.
  • A  King can be moved into a check position.
  • A Player Resigning when in Check is the closest to Check-Mate

And in all cases:

In xChess there is no "Queening", instead a pawn is promoted to any captured piece - which may be a Queen (Classic 3 Pawn only).

In xChess there is no Castling.

In xChess there is no En Passant.
