Thanks for the feedback, Simon. :) Your idea of giving the king an extra move sounds worth trying, too, I think. (I really wanted to make this one a 'modest' variant without extra pieces or larger board.)

I guess the extra move would often make it even more difficult to checkmate though, as such a king could reach more different fields in one round? On the other hand it might sometimes be easier, because such a king wouldn't be able to jump over other figures that are in the way.
