What is the name and detailed rules of the chess variant where the first person to lose all their pieces wins.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure about the rest of the rules. Are there force captures, or checkmates, etc?

Does anybody know the complete set of rules?

    That sounds like suicide or loser's chess.

  • @HerbWolfe It probably is, with a different name. Do you know the full rules?

    Have edited question text to remove Chinese Chess red herring. Not really clear why post was put on hold as off-topic. Question was confused but obviously related to a very common variant of chess, which is definitely on-topic. Maybe someone can explain to me.

    I seem to have found a good answer in this question here... chess.stackexchange.com/questions/15532/…

    @Herb thanks for explanation. But quality of writing and duplication don’t make the problem off-topic. And in fact it never was off-topic, which is my only point. The current reason given for the hold is confusing and reduces confidence in the process. Thanks for your time.
