GAMMA CHESS





PREMISE:
This plays like a cross between chess and backgammon

SET UP:
Regular Chessboard and pieces plus two dice

OBJECT:
Move all of your men to your opponents back row.

PLAY:
Players take turns. 

TURNS:
At the beginning of your turn roll the two dice and consult the table 
below.  This determines which pieces you can move.
1D6	Piece
1	Knight
2	Pawn
3	Rook
4	Bishop
5	King
6	Queen
Example: If you roll 1 on one die and 4 on the other you must move one of 
your 8 pawns and one of your bishops. If you roll 1 and 2 you must move 
either two of your pawns or one of your pawns twice. If you roll a piece 
you no longer have, add one to your roll. If you have no queen go back to 
one. 

MOVES:
Pieces move as normal except that they can only go forward or sideways. 

CAPTURING:
A piece can only capture if it is moving forward. The captured piece is 
immediately put, by its owning player, in a square on its back row. 

MOVING OFF:
If you move one of your pieces onto your opponents back row remove it from 
the game. 

SHORTER GAMES:
The first person to move off his king is the winner.
