On 8x10, 18 of each Knight-centralized, Bishop-centralized, Falcon-centralized and Rook-centralized are currently named. That is 72, and the other 24 King-Queen centralized are half-named, to be completed. There are also non-starting-array specific rule-pair options at issue including: (1) free/fixed castling; (2) Queen promotion or not; (3) Fourriere-Falcon or Duke-Falcon; (4) Bison or two-path Falcon; (5) Guarding the Queen or not; (6) King to Bunker Leap or not. Those all entail cumulatively mounting some 96 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2, 6144 regular derivable preferred rules-sets, more or less. Tournament standard as of now is RNBFQKFBNR having free castling, no Queen promotion, 3-way Falcon without the Knight first-leg leap, and with Guarding the Queen. Another unsettled subject is to single out the initial arrays that protect all Pawns, such as Dulcet Falcon also known as Joyce Falcon, BRNQFFKNRB.
