About

A special Duck Chess Night where we play a variant of chess called Duck Chess, this isn't a tournament but just a casual event. The rules are: -The duck is like a brick: pieces cannot move through the square occupied by the duck, and the duck cannot be captured. However, knights can jump over the duck. -Each player’s turn has 2 steps: After moving a piece, the duck must be moved to a different and empty square. The duck does not move like a chess piece, you can move the duck to any open square on the board. -There is no check or checkmate in Duck Chess! This means you can move into check, so be careful! Capture the opponent’s king to win.
