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.
