Extended Half-chess. Variant on 4 by 10 board. (4x10, Cells: 40) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Is there a plain Halfchess, on a 4x8 board? If not I can suggest one, with four Pawnsm=, no Bishops (to avoid asymmetry in square-colour control), and one of everything else. I can also suggest a variant of that with Cardinal-Queen-King-Marshal at each end so that the power of two Rooks, two Knights, and two Bishops is concentrated in just three pieces.
