About 1980 I and two my friends (we were 12 or 13 years old) often played spherical chess (as well as the cylinder one) with just these rules, including rules of 'transpolar' moving of pieces, four types of castling etc. We had invented these rules independently, knowing rules of the cylinder chess. It was very interesting to play simultaneously three games on three boards between three persons (a kind of triangle) with one board of normal, one of cylinder ad one of spherical rules -- it gives a very good brain training!
