This is what Ecclesall player Ken Norbury has been up to lately. Building on the lunacy first explored in “the Shuffleduck,” Ken sets out to prove that for the first dozen or so moves at least, the moving of pieces can be entirely avoided. Instead Ken seeks to push pawns only, in the manner of a beginner scarcely aware of the rules. Welcome to Ken’s “Nine Pawn Game”.
Detailed analysis of this game has yet to be done. Any thoughts or criticisms are more than welcome.
