The pawns should just be upside-down cards!
It doesn't cause as much pain to the brain and whatnot.

ya'd need 2 decks with different backs. Otherwise you're right.

Don't be silly... Have you ever looked at a deck of cards? The pawns on both teams would be identical.

I've got a pack with red backs and a pack with blue backs. cost me a dollar for each pack.

Some would say 2 dollars still constitutes for "super cheap".

i dont know when was the last time you played chess but the pawns are all the same (on one side ofcourse) (in this discussion we are talking about pawns only, other cards are good as they are)

my friend if you can not read that is not my problem but me and the kind sir above are talking about PAWNS (pic related) that is the front line and behind them are the rook the knight the bishop the queen and the king which dont need to be face down since cards represent them quite nicely
do you now understand?

I bet that took more than 1 man hour to create. Monopoly costs about $8. Though if you are in prison, kids in school, or something like that, I guess it's worth it.

Because you're pissing on their bonfire. They made a game of chess out of a pack of cards, and you're picking out the smallest details which don't matter.

Dude, calm down. The design would be FAR better if it were like this:
King = King
Queen = 9
Rook = 5
Bishop = 4
Knight = 3
Pawn = Back of Card

Just friendly advice. You don't need to freak out.

But in my mind I'd consider bishops and knights 3s so by having bishops as 4s its just as confusing. I agree with the pawn idea but who really cares for the other pieces..?

According to the theory, a bishop is worth more than a knight more often than a knight is than a bishop. In other words, always trade a knight for a bishop. Technically they're worth the same in points, but it's more accurate for a Bishop to be a four.

That depends, if you're in a closed game no way am I trading a knight for a bishop, or if you get a knight on an outpost why would you trade? Bishops are good in open games and endgame but you can't really say they're THAT much better than knights.

If you trade your bishops off early and only have a knight in endgame, you're ******. In some cases, a knight can be the most valuabe piece (especially in a closed game) but generally speaking, a bishop is more consistently valuable.

If you take the king with a castle do you get both checkmate and blackjack.
