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:

London Opening 8-hour video course:


  1. I like how he says "ah I wanted symmetry" 10 moves after symmetry had become unattainable

  2. 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!

  3. A 3D rectangle is a cuboid, or rectangular prism

  4. 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.)

  5. If rectangles of same dimensions are stacked upon one another keeping their vertices aligned, it becomes a 3D figure known as CUBOID.

  6. automate computer is a noob it cannot defeat a single oponent usin even 3 queens

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. “You can’t mate with horses”

    No… no you cannot… that is very illegal

  10. ah yes a gamemode i can play without knowing how to play chess

  11. if you had tried walking the king over you might have lost a knight.

  12. Let's hope it's also hour last game of automate as well! Lol

  13. Places a million pawns and knights
    Gets confused why stockfish is having trouble with strategy

  14. What is a 3D rectangle called? Oh! A prism!"
    Close enough

  15. So it's basically last stand in PVZ. That's cool

  16. 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)
    so like
    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

  17. Or it’s a stretched out cube

    Thats a rectangular prism
