%N Number of possible chess games at the end of the n-th ply starting without bishops.
%C Gives the number of possible chess games where both sides start without bishops.
%C Does not include games which end in fewer than n plies.
%C The initial terms exceed the corresponding terms in A048987, but this should eventually reverse and we should have A285876(n) <= A048987(n) for large enough n.
%C Initial terms computed using the Chesspresso engine.
%H <a href="http://www.chesspresso.org/">Chesspresso<sup>TM</sup></a>.
%e a(1) = 22 because we have the standard 20 opening moves, plus the queen and king can each move into the squares that would normally contain the bishops.
%Y Cf. A048987 (standard), A285873 (no queens), A285874 (no rooks), A285875 (no knights), A285877 (no pawns), A285878 (pawns and king).
