experiments in symmetry Mirror West Chess 8H x 10W Just a few months ago, I independently proposed 1 of the 3 'kings' games Abdul-Rahman Sibahi created. Note that I did nothing with it. No ZOG implementation or Game Courier preset (if possible). I hope ARS shows more initiative than I. 'Is not the 10 x 8 version with two kings more symmetrical than symmetrical variants with just one king? Because a solo king stands out as an asymmetry to the rest of the pieces on the board.' Yes, it is impossible to symmetrically place one king upon an 8H x 10W board because there is no defined, single center file. Since there are two center files, two kings are required.
