I-bughouse = Independent (in opening) bughouse
I-Bughouse - concept:
We finding starting position (or shortly startUp or if no such exist then generally StartUp start rules),
with this special properties:
- Independent in opening phase
This mean that in first 10-15 moves exists many variants for both (white and black also) sides,
in which player is not forced to wait and stay in "sitzkrieg", because is no other way how to
go over opening phase, because all variants are allready from 5th move strongly depending
on events on his partner's chessboard. Because if opening is dependent -> then time has too high value,
could be materializing into pieces, so if Your partner do little mistake, You crashed,
because quickly playing opponents graduate their advantage.
In game begining from start position which leads to such strongly
depending variants is only one way how to solve it : You must study opening theory, I thing more than in "normal" chess,
because You must be very good coordinated with Your partner,
If partners are good prepared then arise great difference in game results,
problem is when partners are changed in tournament, then some games are going to random turbulences maybe.
Idea : good player is not player which has good partner and luck, good player is player which
plays good in game when many variants are possible and he has main influence on his future.
So if first 10-15 moves will be relatively (If player wish can play) independent on partner chessboard,
the really player power is doing your work !
Idea : The power is not in hands = rapid play - is in head = in clever play,
so we need some time at the opening phase in which the game is enaugh independent on partner's chessboard.
Shortly : StartUp with minimal numbers of depending variants in opening phase.
Its first part of the meaned Great space for great players.
- True strategy and combinations. Great space for great players.
In ever start position we can analyze and examine some opening theory, of course,
but compared to "normal" chess, here with the same start position pieces in hand could have in very dependent
opening-variants strongly negative reduction effect (what is not space for creating and strong players),
but if we use start position with some "runway" : 10-15 moves when after every move number of positions is increasing geometrically,
and pieces in hand will multiplay number of interesting variants - this is what we need !
Why play from start position from standart chess, If we open door leading
to new possible spaces, we can see the true potential of game like bughouse chess.
Interesting game full of uncountable ways,
between which many are less or more bad, many viable, and several really good, if You find It !
It's space where You can use as depending strategies and combinations as independing or slightly depending,
where depending character is changing into fascinating variability. In such space You don't solve which piece
Your partner cannot lose, but what combinations of pieces are for such or such suitable !
Shortly: StartUp rich for variants, where pieces in hand multiplying number of interesting variants.
This is second part of the great space !
- bugification of classic start position - REMAKE:
The big surprise : If we wish achieve large number of variants in opening
(pawn moves from second line - so pawns a2,b2,...,h2, both castles - so Ke1,Ra1,Rh1),
and also remove dependencies in opening phase (that mean weak points like F2 in classical start position),
we are left with only one position, because other combinations have too much weak points.
This is the combination :
- Specials - other interesting posssibility is random choice from set of special start positions.
Surely exists many specials - jewels ...

I-bughouse - Special StartUp or starting rules - suggestions :
- 'FirstStrike' (SKAcz):
You take all chess pieces from board into hand (stuff place).
Now You playing using this rules:
You can drop any pieces on chessboard (on own half of board : white rank 1-4 black rank 5-8)
but You cannot by drop attack opponent pieces (You can drop to be under attack),
the king You have to drop first.
Phase 2: In the moment somebody will by drop attack opponent's pieces (he cannot check by such first strike attack),
from this moment game is played using standard rules fro bughouse chess - so You can drop rest of pieces anywhere or move pieces on board.
This version is good for training some bughouse skills, especially tactics and defense.
To find the moment for First Strike is the point of game.
