Thanks. The 10x10 variant features Parton's Gorgona, actually. Both variants have been implemented as Courier presets that check whether a piece is paralyzed (this is necessary to avoid confusion). Gorgona: http://www.chessvariants.org/index/msdisplay.php?itemid=MPgorgonachess Pyrrhus: http://www.chessvariants.org/index/msdisplay.php?itemid=MPpyrrhuschess I mentioned the Pyrrhus on two hardliner Fide-chess forums, and in both occasions it received some appraisal. This is very uncommon, I tell you. The other variant which evoked slight interest among hardliners was my Castle Chess. http://hem.passagen.se/melki9/castlechess.htm /Mats
