Stupid. A cross variant between Ultima and orthodox chess. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Description of pawn / pincer pawn seems redundant. We are told that it moves one forward. We are told that it makes the double initial pawn move if it hasn't moved. Then we are told that it also moves like a rook. Which means regardless of whether it has moved or it hasn't moved, it can make any number of moves forward or to the side. A more consistent and reconciling approach might be for it to be allowed to move as a rook only when it can act as a pincer.
