As you know I am about to improve my playing multivariant chess program SMIRF. Actually I have been asked, to also implement the Dark Chess variant as played at http://brainking.com
, which is highly recommended for to play variants online. The explained rules of Dark Chess could be found there, too.
But that game now would not need a GUI including sophisticated intelligence, but instead to establish a live contact between two players, unhiding their covered positions move by move. This program should enable people to play Dark Chess at home, without the need to communicate using the internet or Brainking.
Thus programming that variant is somehow outside of my interests, and therefore it needs some other interested people to discuss and program solutions for it. I thought, this site could be a good place for to ask for motivated people, because I already have found a lot of approaches here related to chess or to communicate games.
If you are interested in such a project, please contact Mr. Walter Montego at Brainking, who is an active playing member there at Brainking. He would highly welcome any activities concerning his favorite variant Dark Chess.
