Sting is an experimental chess variant. It was proposed in the British
Chess Variant Society, and a brief article on the game by George Jelliss
and Ian Richardson (who played a two-game match) appears in the Autumn
1999 issue of Variant Chess.
The game is played as orthodox chess, but with one difference: kings are
now scorpions, i.e., they have besides their usual movement
also the possibility to move like a grasshopper.
