See Ralph Betza's first 'ugly ASCII diagram' here for his idea of shifting the standard 8x8 initial setup to the center of a 16x16 board. I started with a similar idea on a 10x10 board and added some more pawns and pieces.

1.f3-f5 g8-g7 2.e3-e4 King f9-g8 3.Bishop g2-f3 King g8-h7 4.Bishop f3-i6 uses both Bishops to checkmate in TenCubed Chess. This mate also works on the 16x16 board.

1.Wizard d1-e4 e8-e7 2.Wizard e4-b5 Bishop d9-e8 3.Wizard b5-e6 is the shortest mate in TenCubed Chess. This mate will also work if wizards are replaced by camels.
