Okay, here's the mission:

-Remake a QB game that was made BEFORE the year 2001. That doesn't narrow it down too much.

It would be interesting to see people's versions of QBCookie and stuff like that. Good luck... hope anyone does this one.

Either 2002 or 2001. Both are close enough. If that was your choice, go for it... Wink

The trouble is, both qb45.com's and neozones.com's file archives are now empty or not working... where can I find games to remake?

qbasic.com has a working games section in the downloads section.

[EDIT] After brousing through the link you supplied, na_th_an, I found a new and obsure rule for chess!  Its called En Passant (the pass???).  Its where you move your pawn two spaces forward on its first move and it ends up next to your opponents pawn.  you opponent can then call out En Passant, and move his pawn to where your pawn would have landed had you only moved it 1 square.  your opponent then removes your pawn from the board.  this move is only avalible to your opponent on his first turn after you move your pawn two spaces.

[Example]
0' <--oponent pawn

'1<--your pawn
moves to
01


moves to
'1
'0

moves to

'0

[/Example]
Has anyone else heard of this rule before?  I haven't.

Okay, here are additional details:

Time Limit: Before May 2004

...and that's pretty much it. As long as the game is identical to the original, it's good. Pffft, heck, I'll remake QBCookie as an example...

You've never heard of En Passant? Heheh, guess you haven't played much chess. Cheesy  J/k :wink:
My dad taught me that, when I was on my Chess spree.

Yeah, it's a standard chess rule.  Here's another, less known about move:

The King's Karate

I was introduced to this move while playing my friend's older brother in a game of chess once.  I was up a few pieces and was on my way to victory, when he suddenly made an amazing move.  What at first appeared to be his resignation from the game turned out instead to be a clever employment of a rule he called "King's Karate".  It goes something like this:

Prerequisites:
1. You must be playing a pick-up game against your younger sister's friend.
2. You must be clearly losing.

Method:
1. Pick up your King.
2. Knock over opponent's King with your own.
3. Declare victory.

Just thought you all should know about this oft-forgotten chess rule.

*peace*

Meg.

There's also an oft-forgotten chess rule. It was useful when I got bored of playing endless games with my dad and brother, and didn't want to finish the current game: Take your kind, and flip it upside-down. Game over.
