See Recent Posts and Older Posts from the 72 Capa variants thread for an informed discussion, by several game inventors. On [2004-09-21] I posted a comment with a link to the game published in 1617 by D. Pietro Carrera. On the same day I commented (on the Carrera page) that my favorite opening setup in 'Carrera Random Chess' was: CRNBAKBNRQ. [EDIT] I assume Greg Strong's program has 'King moves two squares' castling and promotion to one of the 'big three' pieces, similar to the rules in Lions and Unicorns Chess. John: different promotion rules means that Victorian Chess is a different chess variant.
