We also are looking for players in Berlin !

Diamond Chess, the Berlin variant is almost like "normal" Chess, but the board is turned by 45° (white squares at the players side). The pieces are placed in the opposing corners, like shown in the illustration.
Players can't just reel off their trained openings, engines are useless.
The positioning of the board gives space for drinks and ashtray left and right of the players corner - very handy sitting at smaller bar-tables.

Die Bauern ziehen auf das vor ihnen liegende Feld (die nächste Raute) und schlagen links oder rechts (die vorn glatt anliegenden Felder).
Der 2 Felder Eröffnungszug entfällt und damit auch enpassant.
Es gibt keine Rochade.
Alle anderen Figuren ziehen wie gehabt, ebenso können Bauern am anderen Ende des Spielfeldes in jede beliebige Figur verwandelt werden.

Wichtige zusätzliche Regel :
Wer eine Figur des Gegners schlägt, muss einen 15ml shot hochprozentigen trinken.

Rock'N'Roll !

Berlin Diamant Schach ist fast wie "normales" Schach, nur wird das Brett um 45 Grad gedreht, mit den Figuren in den gegenüberliegenden Ecken. Die genaue Platzierung der Figuren ist in der Grafik zu sehen und unterscheidet sich von der alten Variante.

A player who captures a piece has to drink a 15ml shot of high-proof alcohol.
That means a good player will get weakened with time.

Rock’n’Roll !


The pawns move forward to the next diamond shaped square in front. They only can move left-forward or right-forward (to the adjacent squares) by capturing a piece of the opponent.
The pawns can't move 2 fields at the beginning, therefore "en passant" doesn't exist either.
There is no castling.
All other pieces move like usual.
The pawns can be promoted into any other piece after they reach the other side of the board.
