Monster Chess

Monster Chess is a fantasy chess variant in which the White King has only the Queen Pawn, the King Pawn and the King Bishop Pawn to fight against all the pieces of the Black side.

All the rules of chess apply, except that White makes 2 successive moves per turn.

Sometimes White's moves can be executed with humor. For example, both hands can be used to move 2 pawns simultaneously, or a Black piece one square away from the White King can simply be removed from the board. Queening a White Pawn generally allows White to declare a checkmate the next move. Also, with only the 2 Kings on the board, White can easily force a Monster Chess checkmate.
