Take Me Chess

  • Also known as Crazy-Chess, Anti-Chess, Reverse-Chess, Kamikaze or the politically incorrect Suicide-Chess.
  • The AIM of the game is to LOSE ALL YOUR PIECES. The first player left with no pieces (including the King) remaining wins the game.
  • Pieces moves in the same way as during an Ortho-Chess (normal chess) game.
  • If you can capture a piece you MUST capture.
  • If you have multiple captures available you may choose which capture to play.
  • To remind the opponent that a capture is possible you often hear players calling “Take me” after each move.
  • The King may be captured at any time, like any other piece. There is no check.
  • If the player to move has no legal move (eg. Has a pawn, but it is blocked) then the game is declared a stalemate (draw).

Anything Goes Chess

There are no rules!!! Any piece can move anywhere.

No check, no checkmate.
