Uprising Chess has an AI
Published on April 23, 2022 by Will Stedden

I've been so excited to try to build a proper AI that works for Uprising Chess for months.  I finally found the time over the last week, and I'm really excited to get to share it. 

The most interesting thing is that the AI plays in a way that is totally different than how I was playing the game originally. At first, I couldn't understand what it was doing and figured it was broken, but after it kept beating me, I realized that it actually had discovered some crafty and non-intuitive strategies.

I'm very grateful to  Gautam Bajaj's (Chess-AI)[] for providing the framework and much of the integration with existing chess.js package. I really hope this helps get more people interested in these rule modifications.
