What is geometric chess?

Geometric chess *( *
*
short
name : G -
Chess ;
author: Do Duc Luong )** *is a game of
intellectual opposition for two players; When playing chess, the player needs to
use simple geometric knowledge to choose smart moves in order to sort the chess
pieces into basic geometric shapes and find the chance to score.

The
geometric chess has two versions,
standard and simple
geometric chess.
The standard
geometric chess
is suitable for ages 8+ and the simple
geometric chess is for children
at the age of 6 or more to play.

At school age,
geometric
chess is a typical product of the trend of PLAYING-LEARNING; With adults,
the geometric chess is an interesting
and attractive
intellectual sport.
Playing
geometric
chess helps people
develop their creative potential, enhance the ability to think logically and
express the power of the imagination.

The
geometric
chess board is for two players, one on each side
is
with different colored chess
pieces.
Two sides rotate each
move and they use their chess pieces.
Initially, two sides
draw or
give each other
the chance to go ahead, if
they play more games, from the second
game onwards,
the loser
first goes.

2.
Chessboard

The geometric chess board is shown in Figure 1.1 & Figure 1.2. The chessboard
consists of two parts: the main part used for competition and auxiliary part
used to score the score for each side. The main part of the chessboard consists
of nine vertical columns marked A through I and 9 horizontal rows from 1 to 9.
The chessboard is divided into 81 small squares with white and blue or brown and
yellow alternating and etc. The auxiliary part of the chessboard consists of two
columns (or two rows) numbered from 1 to 15 that are used to track scores for
both sides during the game.

*Fig 1.2: Sample of chessboard used in the game application*

Each small square on the chessboard has a point called the center of the square,
the center of the square is the intersection of two diagonals. To understand the
geometric chess (especially the standard geometric chess) and apply well in the
competition, the chess players need to know more about the concept of backbone
on the chessboard.

* The straight section connecting the center of the squares on a vertical column
is called the vertical axis, the chessboard has all nine vertical axes.

* The straight line connecting the center of the squares on a horizontal row is
called the horizontal axis, the chessboard has all nine horizontal axes.

* The straight line connects the center of the squares on a diagonal row called
the diagonal axis, the chess board has all 30 diagonal axes.

**Chess piece**

Each side has 9 chess pieces for the competition, can use white - black or red
- black ... to distinguish the color of the chess pieces on both sides. Each
chess piece is round, cylindrical body, compact size made of wood, plastic ....
In addition to nine chess pieces for playing, each side also has one additional
chess piece to recognize the score for each side in the competition process.

The chess set consists of two types for standard chess pieces and simple
chess pieces. It is also possible to combine both types of chess on a set of
pieces. Then two sides of the chess pieces are used for two different purposes;
one side has symbols for the standard geometric chess and the other side has
symbols for the simple geometric chess pieces. Thus, only one set of chess
pieces is used for both the standard and simple geometric chess pieces.

**4. How to move the chess pieces**

In
the geometric chess (standard and simple geometric chess), there is no
distinction of how to move chess pieces. On a chessboard, each piece can be
moved horizontally, vertically, diagonally across small squares, and without
limiting the number of squares that can be moved to the condition that are
empty. If any square has a chess piece there, other chess pieces can not be
moved past it. We find that each chess piece in the geometric chess can be moved
like a
Queen piece in chess. Figures 1.3 & 1.4 illustrate how to move the chess
pieces.

*Fig 1.3: How to move chess pieces*

*Fig 1.4: How to move chess pieces*

It is supposed there are any chess pieces on two sides marked from 1 to 9
arranged on the chessboard as shown in Figures 1.3 & 1.4. If the person holding
red pieces wants to move the piece "5", this piece can be moved to one of the
squares marked "green dot" on the chessboard.

**5. Tasks of the chess player**

* In the geometric chess, there is no case that this piece on this side can keep
up with the piece on another side, only the score is gained for each side when
they reach a goal as given.

The goal of the chess player is to make clever moves to arrange chess pieces
into simple geometric shapes such as straight lines, triangles, squares, circles
for scoring.

* In addition to finding the way of scoring, chess players also need to
calculate the appropriate moves to limit the opponent in scoring.
