  1. after amongus? im just getting this video2 years after

  2. This variant of chess gives me vibes of Game of the Generals. To win you have to capture the enemy flag or get your flag to the other end. You can arrange your pieces in your chosen way but the opponent won't know which pieces are which and vice versa. I remember winning by bluffing that my flag was a spy piece and got to the other end.

  3. damn bro your whole chat was bullying you 💀

  4. I love the advance war reference on the thumbnail

  5. Hikaru and Levi playing a third game in their head while playing the second game is amazing! Wish I could play just in my head.

  6. "I lost because you didn't play the right move, why are you so bad at this game."

  7. it's actually so interesting. I feel very privileged to have played in very high elo in another game and I'm able to understand how you can so easily just ~know~ their position, and when they are out of position, it's almost confusing because that is usually bad and exploitable. In a format like this, that sort of flips around because the most optimal moves are much different. Games have a certain tempo and after playing for so long you know exact timing and where things should be and when based on everything else that happens.

    Chess is just so much more infinitely complicated than what I played that it's leagues ahead of whatever I was capable of.

  8. I wish the pawns only saw up and to the left and right but not straight ahead.

  9. Am I the only one that's thinking Levy's stream sniping Hikaru?

  10. I think it would be great if pawns could see one step forward, too, even if they cannot take. It would make paws more valuable in this game mode because they could be used as more effective scouts.

  11. WOW that thumbnail sent me back. I used to play advanced wars every day but totally forgot about it

  12. People calling him toxic, I think he's just genuinely confused lmao

  13. doesn't Hikaru just look possessed when he's looking up in the sky.

  14. Hikaru: whats your strat?
    Levi: Strat?😅

    It seems to me Fog of War strat is closer to real war strat, instead of chess game strat🤔

  15. “Ok but then levy why are you so bad at the game”

  16. Every time Hikaru made a crazy move Levi couldn’t help but freak out 😂😂love Levi

  17. hilary saying "either it's a winning move, or i blunder a rook" is really me whenever i'm in an endgame

  18. GMs play like me, just without blunders

  19. Hikaru has his stream on the ceiling or just finished watching queens gambit

  20. Question. Can you move your king right the kill zone of opponent which could happen, or does it still not let you like on regular chess.

  21. If there's a piece right in front of a pawn, will the square be revealed? Or are only squares that can be captured on revealed?

    If the latter, then the initial board should reveal the first 3 rows.

  22. 13:26 of GothamChess had premoved to take the black queen would the squares with the white queen, knight, bishop, and pawn have been revealed?

  23. I have a great idea for a chess mode idk if it exists yet but whenever you take a piece yiu become that piece, so if your queen takes a pawn it becomes a pawn

  24. @GMHikaru, this is coming from a huge fan but could you please stop thinking the way you do, rolling your eyes up because sometimes it looks like you're having an orgasm.

  25. Excuse me hikaru what is that about advance wars in the beginning

  26. Mr beast just came up with a killer thumbnail in seconds. I guess everyone has their strengths. It’s also kinda funny to know atleast he can beat Carl and Chris at chess

  27. I like the Advance Wars reference. Build some recons to see more of the chess board
