In this video, I play a variant called Automate Chess. The variant involves determining my initial setup of pieces and then letting Stockfish do the rest! Try Automate Chess along with other variants:

oh no my alexa
I like how he says "ah I wanted symmetry" 10 moves after symmetry had become unattainable
When you’re better than the engine!
His opponent's name lmao
Hes kinda dumb
It’s called a rectangular prism
Eric @6:44 ooh these knights are kinda like horses 😂😂
The first round of Automate Chess I played, I put down 2 queens cause I could, I actually waited a bit to set the 2nd one down. I actually won that round hilariously!
Cuboid. The answer is cuboid.
A 3D rectangle is a cuboid, or rectangular prism
Idea: 4 person "analog" automate chess. Players 1 and 2 set up the positions, and players 3 and 4 play the positions. (Say player 1 places for white, player 2 places for black, player 3 plays white, player 4 plays black.)
If rectangles of same dimensions are stacked upon one another keeping their vertices aligned, it becomes a 3D figure known as CUBOID.
automate computer is a noob it cannot defeat a single oponent usin even 3 queens
i played this and the engine is really bad. i guess they didn't want to waste compute time finding good moves?
kind of lame how badly it plays

THIS IS AWSOME!!! but it should also be playable online manually, without the computer assistance. i LOVE the idea of building the chessboard!!!
EDIT: or maybe a manual game with an engine that you are allowed to view, just to prevent the engine from doing silly "engine" things, or to force it to push a certain strategy.
This is my best mode
“You can’t mate with horses”
No… no you cannot… that is very illegal
Hussars be like:
ah yes a gamemode i can play without knowing how to play chess
Automate for the people
A "three-dimensional rectangle" is a cuboid
if you had tried walking the king over you might have lost a knight.
Let's hope it's also hour last game of automate as well! Lol
"you're not as fun as Alexa"
Places a million pawns and knights
Gets confused why stockfish is having trouble with strategy
What is a 3D rectangle called? Oh! A prism!"
So it's basically last stand in PVZ. That's cool
Does no one know what a cuboid is
automate chess 2 idea:
No peice limits
the AI does better the more points you have left (aka in this case you don't have to use all of your points)
you can go multiple queens, but the engine isn't going to play as well.
so essentially it's a balance between pieces placed and AI skill
I guess it could be a subclass of Automate, called like
"Automate: Balance" or something
why did u stop playing on lichess ?
3 dark square bishops😂
Or it’s a stretched out cube
Thats a rectangular prism
