A place to talk about Gothic Chess items of interest, events and happenings in the chess world, and other topics that are non-flammatory and worthy of subsequent discussion.
The ArchBishop is so versitile I wish I had 2! Who needs a Chancellor!!
I tend to find the Archbishop to be my favorite piece as well.I just wish I could learn to force checkmate with ONLY a King and Archbishop left.
Why don't you downlold the free Gothic Chess program at http://www.GothicChess.com/vortex.zip then practice positions against its databases?There is an item under the Special menu entitled "Random 3-Piece Checkmate". If you select that, the program randomly generates some of the hardest 3-piece mates. Keep selecting it or hit cntrl-3 a few times until an Archbishop and King position shows up.Play against the program, and if you can't get to the point of making progress, use the "Autoplay" feature to watch it checkmate the lone king.
