DUCK CHESS

In this video, I play my very first game of Duck Chess. This is a new funny and entertaining chess variant that involves a duck. If you want to see more duck chess, leave a quack in the comments 🦆

  1. Dang I think you had a missed win it was Queen a7 or h7 (sry still working on my notating)

  2. Your content is already fantastic and I should’ve subbed long ago but the “that’s counterproductive”
    long pause
    “CounterproDUCKtive” made me sub on the spot

  3. Me and my buddy got bored and made a similar version of this, i called it jester chess. The peice was a dice block. Each player would have one, it could move anywhere, and wasn't capture able. It can't attack or block checks. But and it would count as its own move

  4. There is no stalemate. If the king moved into a place where he can be captured, then you'd capture him and win.

  5. You can’t stalemate Eric! It’s duck chess, you’re allowed to move yourself into check!

  6. pretty funny to watch this after 3 mounts and know, that in that short period eric became one of the most famous and best players in duck chess

  7. 1:53 Bishop B4 and Duck D2 just kills the queen as it cant move but they have to move the duck so the queen dies.
    Easy.

  8. I’m mad you could of won likes 3 times

  9. I have to ask. At 12:22 what was preventing you from taking the Knight with your own? You can threaten either a Pawn so you don't have to worry about Castling as much, or you can threaten Check by going the other way.
    And if the Pawn takes, your Rook is still developed enough to capitalize on the hole that pawn creates.

  10. “I wonder if my opponent meant to play duck D7”

    2:05

  11. You could have made a checkmate on 4:16 by putting the duck in front of the king then killing the pawn with your bishop

  12. On move 55 you could take horse an just move just anywhere…

  13. Is this Eric’s first duck chess game?

  14. image 4 player duck, with 3 ducks and you move the one that hasnt been mvoed in 3 turns

  15. I watched on 1.5 speed and it was still impossibly slow

  16. 1:57 u should have put vishop to facing the queen and put duck between bishop and queen again so its pin so whenever his turn to move the duck u can eat the queen idk if thats a blunder or not

  17. "It feels so good to move the duck"

    I never thought I'd hear a sentence like that in the context of chess

  18. BRO YOU MISSED SO MANY WINS IT TRIGGERS ME

  19. 14 min in could've use the duck for back rank mate for a amazing win using the duck he actually try to do it 15 min but to late the knight block

  20. "Duck Chess. How to play, the rules are the same as regular chess, but with these changes, for a refresher of those rules, check out this video"

  21. 2:44 couldn’t you have forked the king and knight with Qa5?

  22. i can literally fall asleep while you are talking. your voice is so calming

  23. why does Erics voice somehow sound like those asmr channels lol

  24. Imo they explained the stalemate rule poorly. They should clarify that classic stalemate and “fowling” are two entirely different things.

    Basically normal stalemate is now Zugswang where you are forced to move your king into check, meaning the “Rosen Trap” won’t work.

  25. This game could become very addicting. Would that make me a quackhead?

  26. .. or every third time you move the duck it becomes a goose (duck, duck, GOOSE!). Then you swap sides. LUL
