How do you play Battle Chess?

Battle Chess is a chess variant that was released as a video game in 1988. It features animated battles between the chess pieces when they capture each other. Here’s how to play:

  1. Set up the chess board as you would for a standard game of chess.
  2. Each player takes turns moving their pieces according to the standard rules of chess.
  3. When a player captures an opponent’s piece, a battle animation will play out on the board. The animation shows the capturing piece attacking the captured piece, and the captured piece fighting back. The winner of the battle is determined by chance.
  4. The game continues until one player puts the other in checkmate, as in standard chess.
  5. The game can be played in single-player mode against the computer or in two-player mode against another person.

Note that Battle Chess does not change the basic rules of chess, and players must still follow the standard chess rules for legal moves, check, checkmate, etc. The only difference is the addition of the animated battles.
