About the last position:

Isn't quite easy for white to win. What if first white move his rook to a8. Black moves his king back and forward between h8 and h7. Meanwhile white moves his king to d7. Afterwards he sacrifices his rook for the bishop. white can force black away from the f7-pawn. White should be ware of stalemate but he wins if plays careful I am convinced.


Great chess. An Indian/Turkish and very playable historic variant on a 10 by 10 board. (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The Sultan's Game. Variant on 11 by 11 board from 19th century Germany. (11x11, Cells: 121) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The game can be played at the website jocly.com under the name sultanspiel.

Here it is the rule for promotion that a pawn only can be promoted to a captured piece. Because of that a player who haven't had any pieces captured can't move a pawn to the last rank.

Another rule not mentioned here is that pawns who had made a single step move at their first move may choose between a singlestep move and double step move at their next move.
