King Arthur's Chess 72. Chess on a round board,. The odd number of files allows the Bishops to access every cell on the board - not colour-bound. (9x8, Cells: 72) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This just like FIDE chess with another one file with queen and pawn, played with cylindrical chess mutator ( ), but pawns can promote to conqueror and other minor rules changes. I think, better decision is to remove rank with one of rooks (7 ranks, also odd number). But your variant is also good.
