Tavreli (Russian Chess) is a two-player abstract strategy board game in the same family as Western chess, Shatranj, Japanese Shogi or Chinese Xiangqi.There was an ancient Russian Chess-like game called Tavreli but its rules have been lost over time. Today's Tavreli is a modern game that was recreated in the latest 1990s as a combination of standard Chess and Russian Stacking Draughts.
|The objective of Tavreli is the same is in standard Chess: to attack the opponent's Magus (King) in such a way that the opponent cannot escape from the attack and cannot block it on his next turn.
At the beginning of the game one of the players has 16 light pieces and the second player has 16 dark pieces:
Unlike in standard Chess, the Tavreli pieces are flat and stackable. The ranks of the pieces are also shown on their sides so a player can see the composition of any stack without disassembling it. Another difference comparing to the standard Chess is that in Tavreli each pawn promotes to the piece that was behind that pawn initially. This rule makes it important to distinguish between different pawns since they move from a file to another file during a game. The pawn starting in front of the Magus promotes to the special piece called Helgi (explained below):
Tavreli is played on an 8x8 square board.
The initial position of the pieces is shown in the following picture:
