Rose Chess. Grand Chess, with Roses instead of Knights. (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I think the basic opening setup [for Grand Chess version] needs some tweaking. White can play on his first move, b2-e5 and thus force the Black King to move back. One suggestion is to move all the pieces on the 2nd rank on to the first rank, so that, as with Nachtmahr, all the pawns are a knight's length away from the pieces.

The rose pieces and rose compound pieces designed by Abdul-Rahman Sibahi are beautiful.

[I see in the rules, it says this: 'Or you can put all your pieces on the first rank.' I will change the official preset to reflect this second alternative for reasons above.]
