7 <h1> Quantum Chess </h1>\r
8 \r
9 <p> <b>Competition: </b> Write an AI to play Quantum Chess. You can enter in <b>any</b> language that supports reading/writing from standard input/output. </p>\r
10 \r
11 <p> Quantum chess is a variant of chess in which the type of a piece changes during play. </p>\r
12 \r
13 <p> The game was invented by Selim Akl, and first implemented by Alice Wismath. You can see their original website <a href="/web/20130509192429/http://research.cs.queensu.ca/Parallel/QuantumChess/QuantumChess.html"/>here</a>. \r

16 <hr><h2> Rules </h2><p> The rules are basically the same as <a href="/web/20130509192429/http://research.cs.queensu.ca/Parallel/QuantumChess/QuantumChess.html"/>the original rules</a>. </p>\r
17 \r
18 <h3> Differences / Clarifications </h3> \r
19 <ul>\r
20         <li> The bottom right and top left squares are white (as in traditional chess), not black. </li>\r
21         <li> Castling and en passen are <b>not</b> allowed (I'm not sure whether they are in the original version). </li>\r
22         <li> If a piece in a <b>pawn</b> state ends its move in the opposing back row, that state is <i>always</i> replaced with a <b>queen</b> state. </li>\r
23                 <ul> <li> (because I'm too lazy to give players a choice) </li> </ul>\r
24         <li> I might shorten the number of moves before a draw is declared, we'll see. </li> \r
25 </ul>\r
