Take The Brain Besudes The Brain, the pieces were Ninnies (seven of them), and Numbskulls (four of). The Ninnies were based on chess pawns, while the Numbskulls moved similar to Queens.
On the other hand, the pieces could only move in the directions the arrows on their square at the start of the move, allowed. Ninnies could only move one square at a time, whereas Numbskulls could move as far on the board that the squares allowed (i.e. 7 or 8).
The sides were red, or blue.
I owe the game my initial interest in, and love of, chess.
