Post navigation PreviousNext 12 Comments Thanks for your explanation! So it's easier than I thought haha i finally understand the rule Reply lol this is nothing like regular chess. why would the king move 0 or 4 squares if it has always moved 2 in both short and long castling? dumb rules Reply disgusting rule. Now we can't castle vertically. the king should always move 2 squares while castling (or 1 when on the b/g files) . Reply It's almost impossible to castle kingside.i don't what's the matter but whether you move your king g1 or f1 it just doesn't work.i hate it.why don't it works the way normal castling works,like when you move ur king to g1 or c1 it simply castles.I love 960 but this is so irritating. Reply well i'll be Reply thanks Reply Thanks, so as long as there are no pieces between the king and rook, and the destination squares are empty, then you can castle. Reply What if you king starts on G and rooks on F and H? Is castling kingside not moving at all then? :l Reply Just one question. What do you do if the K starts out on either c1 or g1? Reply Why not showing other weird starting positions and interaction with other pieces on the way? If rook and king start at a1 and b1 you have to remove the c1 piece to castle? Reply Normal chess is cool Reply You should talk about the other pieces in the way. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
