Are you sure you want to remove any excuse for when you lose? Tongue

Wow, these endgame experiments (as I prefer to call them) are truly very interesting. I can see how a totally different skill set would be required to play them and play them well. Of course the trick is to have the opening and middlegame skills, not to mention the stamina, to get there in the first place! This exercise reminds me of something I thought I read about some time ago regarding the initial stages of Omar's development and evolution of Arimaa's rules where he and Aamir would play chess with just the Kings and Pawns, basically racing to get a promotion. I too did that (earlier by many years) by setting up the Kings and Pawns on their traditional starting squares on my old electronic Excaliber chess computer and then playing from there. It 'twas a nice diversion from the full-complement-of-pieces game.

Don't need no excuse when my opponent simply played better Smiley

Whoops! I forgot to make sure the setup had 12 or fewer pieces. It should be fixed now.

It had to happen eventually- #1 vs #2 in the top matchup- definitely one to watch.

Only one rabbit a side? This will be interesting.
Only one of us will remain undefeated after this.

Will capture threats dominate goal threats?  That would be unusual for an endgame.

Only one rabbit? Ok..
 
Before I fight against c&g, I should again study his book to be prepared for his winning strategy...  Wink
 
c&g: when shall we play?

With this rabbit to piece ratio I doubt either side can generate serious goal threats. The single rabbit is more of a vulnerability than an asset. I think I know how I will play this one, but I'll see how odin73 vs. chessandgo goes.

@c&g: I prefer this evening, Thursday, Friday or Saturday evening.
 
@browni: I agree, that this is a special case, hardly found in a real game. The rabbit isn´t an asset, it´s rather a burden. It motivates to think about how to play this setup. Anyway I think games never evolve as expected, one has to wait for the match to find a way to win.
