Xiangqi variant. Board 10x10. Six Pawns. Palace 3x4 the same three ranks deep, Advisers start within Palace on opposite bishop-colours, and the only one new Piece is nonroyal Wazir. Wazir is otherwise exactly like King confined to palace. All other pairs, rules, and the King the same. So four pieces of three types must stay in palace. Of necessity the Elephants are oppositely-bishop-colour-bound too; and each reaches two different palace squares/spots/points. Each Elephant still reaches 7 points, like Xiangqi 10x9. Pawns a4, c4, e4, f4, h4, j4.
