What could be more polar opposites than chess and demolition derby. You would think that no one who enjoys one would enjoy the other... until today.
The starting position is a standard chess board:
RNBQKBNR PPPPPPPP PPPPPPPP RNBQKBNR
Looks normal enough, until you find out it's an EVERY PIECE FOR ITSELF, LAST PIECE STANDING competition:
- On every turn, each piece on the board gets to make one randomly*-selected valid move (using it's standard move rules). However, the order the pieces move in is randomized every turn.
- A piece can capture ANY PIECE, even if it's the same color as it, even a king.
- Pawns can capture FORWARD, as well as diagonal. Moreover, like normal, if there is an empty space in front of it, a pawn can move two spaces on its first move (they can also capture that way.) Furthermore, pawns promote to any random piece (including king) other than a pawn.
- The winner is the last piece standing. However if after 1000 turns, there is more than one piece left, all of the remaining pieces are winners.
- No En Passants, Checks, Castles, etc.
After every turn output the turn number, and what the board looks like. After a piece is killed it is removed from the board. After the first turn, the board may look like this:
1. K RBQ N BR NP P P PP P P R PP BPN PNP K R Q
After 1000 moves the board may look like this:
1000. Q K P N R R B N Q
And the game ends.
Or Maybe after 556 turns the board look like this:
So the game ends there.
*Please ensure all randomization done in this challenge is uniform (every possibility has an equal chance of occurring).
