I will start with a low-hanging fruit: bishops are much more worthy than knights, maybe even twice as much.

IMHO the queen is more worthy than 2 rooks... at least for human players ^^

for now i think:
pawn 1
knight 4
bishop 8
rook 12
queen 30

I don't think a bishop is worth 2 knights... maybe 6 paws IMO, but bishops of opposite colors also matter.

Maximum amount of pawns to sacrifice for better development is one pawn. :D

Context: I resigned game with five pawns given away, soon after queen exchange happened. :)

It seems that you need bigger knights.

Do you mean replacing knights with some other type of piece, smth from fairy chess?

A moving knight must change the colour.

That's too radical. :) What about Big Chess crazyhouse? :D

I mean, the knight must change the colour of the square every move. It is the most essential thing about the knight in chess.

Does the 3 times repetition rule apply to Big Chess? Does the 50 move rule apply to Big Chess?
