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 http://www.ktn.freeuk.com/9a.htm#(3). 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...

 Author: Hans L. Bodlaender. Inventor: John Mantle Green. 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! This 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]
