Grand Chess with Donkeys instead of Knights. (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Graeme Neatham wrote on 2007-05-20 UTC ...The donkey *is* actually stronger than a knight, and therefore the name is proper, I think... Sorry for being slightly off-topic, and I may be missing the point entirely (I often do), but I fail to see why the term donkey would be suitable for a piece stronger than a knight. The term carries overtones of stupidity, and the actual animal is surely weaker than a knight's war-horse? From an ancient warfare standpoint a better name might be Cataphract; or from a modern military standpoint perhaps Tank?
