'JKL,LargeCV': Janus Chess(8x10) first pairs Cardinal(B,N)calling them Janus, a quarter century ago. Archbishop Chess in Chess Variant Page recently mixes up Janus' array. Also under CVPage, 2002 'Modern Kamil'(10x10, or else 84-square 8x10 with four corner tack-ons) uses Camel paired instead: 'in Memory of the Thousand Years of Arabic Chess Tradition.' So what else, but the marriage 'Janus Kamil(JK)', logical. Computer could generate hundreds of alternate initial set-ups (nothing compelling about Rook at b1,b10 etc.)on 10x12, but maybe 8x12 would be better. Knappen's Quintessential Chess sharply tailors pieces to go with its neat Quintessence, also reaching Camel(and N) squares. This Janus Kamil seems more common variety 'cut-and-paste' popular since turn of millennium.
