As far as easier capture of king or knight, I think it depends on the particular mix of pieces and board you have. I was playing Maxima, and had great trouble catching the king there, which moves like a knight. I remember wishing it only moved like a king. I suspect that 2 things played into that feeling. One is geometry. The smaller standard chessboard coupled with adding 2 pieces, the commoner-kings, that can interdict the knight, blocking its move to an area, makes the royal knight easier to hunt down in Triumverate, I claim. Secondly, that was the only game of Maxima I ever played, so maybe the reason I couldn't catch the knight-king in Maxima is because I'm pretty bad at it. ;-)
