International chess with Cannon pieces added. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Andy Thomas wrote on 2005-12-09 UTCin AIGO, perhaps the knights' pawns should be dispensed with altogether. in my opinion this would give better 'synergy' between the combined FIDE and xiang qi varieties of chess. then there would be no rule about whether those pawns could move 2 initially, because the knights' pawns wouldn't exist; and each side would have 16 pieces, as each side does in both FIDE and xiang qi. plus, the cannons would then be able to attack the opponent's knights, as it is in xiang qi. currently, AIGO with the cannons inserted at n2 and knights pawns starting at 3, gives the game a 'cramped' look on the 8x8 board.
