Notes

Modern Shatranj is a strong version of Shatranj, meant to bridge the gap between Shatranj and modern chess. It makes two small changes to the moves, and changes the promotion rule. <p>The General or Fers moves like the King, one square in any direction, rather than being colorbound. The Elephants may slide one step in a diagonal direction, as well as leap 2 squares in the diagonal directions. They remain colorbound, but may now reach all 32 squares of their respective colors on the board. <p>Promotion is to a General or to any previously lost piece.
