Is this real? And if so, is it actually real or just an April Fools' joke?
@Ajunta Pall, I mean, it IS on the internet. If it made it there, it has to be true.
@Ajunta Pall, it was real, and yes it was an April fools joke.
@Ajunta Pall, I would say it's fake. My chess rule knowledge is a little rusty, but if the game goes like 50 moves or so without a piece being taken, or someone winning, or something, it's a stalemate.
Just looked it up, it appears to be an April Fool's joke. It's a stalemate if 50 turns go by without a piece being taken and without a pawn moving.
@Ajunta Pall, its just a joke, there would be pandemonium in the chess community if there were ANY rule changes at all, let alone one that critical to the game.
If you have any interest in Chess at all I highly recommend The Queen's Gambit on Netflix. Great acting combined with an even better story make for weekend worthy binge watching.
@Funny Pics Janitor, These rules would turn Queen's Gambit into a martial arts film.
How do I kick an opponent in the shins over the internet and can i use this technology on funnypic users who don't upvote this comment?
@AussiePatrick, I don't think so, but not taking the chance.
Isn’t three move repetition already a draw?
