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

Another way of playing with this theme: Instead of the a-file being the royal determinant file, let f1/f8 squares be royal determinant squares. If equidistant, then neither is royal. Equidistance is defined as spaces away, counted either diagonally or orthogonally. Otherwise, the king closer to the f1/f8 square is the royal king. If one king is eliminated, the other becomes royal.
