Hello! I don't know if anybody plays my variant... but to all interested in
downloading the .zrf, the images for the game lacks the presence of the
white rook!! it is really the bitmap that is missing!

Can you please put it there? :-)

The zillions link is misspeled. I't is kamIl not kamEl. I copyed the path,
paste it on the explorer adress bar, changed the E to an I and pressed
enter... It worked fine! It is really only the link that is wrong, 'cause
the file is there. Please correct it. Thank you. Nuno Cruz

The rules of chess in medieval europe (king's leap, 'passar bataglia', free castling, etc) could also have a page of their, own explaining it's evolution...

This piece is called a CALIPH by chess problemists, as you can see in A suitble name for it's Arabe
origins (Wazir + Alfil). Also there, you can check out some other compound
piece names made from joining 2 simple pieces...

Mideast chess. Variant on 10 by 10 board, inspired by ancient Tamerlane chess. (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I do like this game, although the Cavalier is a very 'irregular piece'.
I propose to replace it's movement by the one of the Croocked Bishop!
would produce a very enjoyable game, don't you agree? :-))
The other pieces, I believe, are well balanced for 10x10 board, and the
fact that Knights depart from the 2nd row turns them more valuable in the
opening and during the rest of the game (a problem with other 10x10 board
variants that place them on the 1st row!).

Please comment me on this to: [email protected]
