Kings. A modest variant with more than one king. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I think Sam Trenholme's concern about drawishness is well-founded.  So, I have abolished castling (a special move designed to enhance the protection of a single king) from all variants of Mirror West Chess.  Furthermore, there are variants included where the 2 royal pieces have the movement of a wazir or ferz instead of a man (i.e., king).

The submission I just sent to Zillions Of Games consists of 48 variants total.
