Omega Chess Advanced - how did it come to be?
« on: January 25, 2018, 04:31:14 pm »
I'm sure most of you on this forum know of or have played omega chess.
One thing that's baffled me for years is - how did the 'advanced' rules come about? Were they changes made by MacDonald himself? Are they supposed to be the 'definitive' rules? Were there ever any sets made?
All I know of the rules is from the Wikipedia article and a blogspot page that's been stagnant for a while.

I always though this was because succesful games usually try to market some extension set (in this case the Fool piece).
