The images below illustrate a StarCheckGenesis (check of five players with a single move) using a casual board with Andromi Formation. Does anyone escape mate? Is it a StarMateGenesis?
The images below also illustrate a StarCheckGenesis, but three players can actually escape mate, resulting in a StarMate (checkmate of two players with a single move). Who escapes? How?
Arranging a genuine StarMateGenesis situation isn't as easy as it might initially seem. Can you be the first to do it on your first attempt? I didn't.
Can you imagine how long it might take before the first genuine StarMate (checkmate of two players in a single move) occurs in an actual game? StarMatePrime (three players)? StarMateNova? How many millions of games will have to be played, even using computers (when they can actually play this game), before a genuine StarMateGenesis might ever occur, even granting that it is at least theoretically possible? If you can answer that question, you may actually have the key to life. Congratulations, you're ahead of even this game! Would you like to play a game of chess where a computer still can't beat you? Here it is, and likely will be for a long time (there aren't any histories or library tables yet)!
The images below illustrate the beginning formation and then a typical series of openings on a 3-Player Casual Board, Andromi Formation.
