Exchange / Bughouse / Tandem / Chess on ChessCube

Hello ChessCube world.

I would like to start a forum requesting Exchange chess on ChessCube to see how many others would like it.

For those who are unfamiliar, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tandem_Chess

In my chess world, this game is very popular. Its a game where you need a good team mate. Its good for laughs. You can get many awkward positions especially with pawn structure. Is a lot more social. And you need to forget everything you think you know about opening theory. Its like a 4 player expansion of 960 chess. It wont have any lasting improvement on your normal chess game or come with any teaching recommendations as its a distraction and distorts your pattern recognition, but you can have amazing fun.

It could be a bit tricky to implement, but if enough people request it, I'm sure the ChessCube developers could think of something.

Cheers

Good evening sweeny,

I am with that too. I have seen it some other post although it was not as clear named as in this one. Thanks a lot for giving us the correct name of the chess variant. I really hope it gets implemented it would be a fun game capturing other pieces to make them your own. You have my vote, although I believe it will be a difficult task for developers.

The previous topic about this: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2222

Regards Xabier.

Cheers again Xabier,

I was still figuring out how to navigate the forums when I posted some of these. I remember seeing an edit button which is no longer there. Trying to minimize the number of topics from now on. ;)
