The Future of Chess
Gladiator Rules - No Draw Rules

1) Long Armageddon Time Control
White 60 minutes per game / Black 45 minutes per game. 30 secs increment per move

White, Black wins = Full win, 1 point
In case of a draw, black wins

2.) Piece promotion: N/B >R, R>Q when no more legal pawn moves on both sides. Pieces can be re-promoted N/B>R>Q by moving out and back the 8th rank.

3. Bare kings race to the 8th rank.

Combined all 3 and no more draws. And you keep lively tactics till the endgame. Opposite colored bishops will not be drawn. K+P v K, K+B v K, K+N v K, will not be drawn. Heck bare kings will not be drawn either.

Good rules are rules that do not essentially change the appearance of the game, so chess variants are out. Fischerrandom is out. Chess squares and pieces shouldn't be changed either, so Capablanca variant chess with the Chancellor piece is out.

SugarDom: How can somebody who claims going to church has this much hatred and swearing. He made so many violations of the posting guidelines that he should be suspended right away.

SugarDom: That's nothing, sometimes back the police shot down a mentally unstable Filipino woman in the USA who was holding a scissor. I wonder if the police got persecuted for this. Anybody?
