Memories of Shrink Chess

The b-file has just been emptied by White’s last move (Rb2-c2+), it has to disappear.

Last week I received an email asking some questions about a chess variant, Shrink Chess. My name was mentioned on the website www.chessvariants.org. Indeed, back in 1996 I had mailed the website owner, Hans Bodlaender, the rules of ‘Krimpschaak‘ (which is Dutch for Shrinking Chess). This brought back nice memories of playing this fun chess variation when I was at University studying Mathematics. And therefore I decided to write a somewhat more elaborate article on this website.
