What an interessing game! One that I will probably try to convince my friends to play with! :-)

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]
