Errors now corrected on this page include the following:

  • The spelling of the title of Carrera's book is not Il Gioco delgi Scacchi.
  • The pieces in the diagram were all placed in reverse, and the positions given for Kings, Queens, Centaurs, and Champions were all incorrect.
  • The earlier text says (or at least misleadingly suggests) that Ben Foster wrote Thomas Pruen's An Introduction to the History and Study of Chess..
  • The earlier text suggested that the game included en passant. But it does not.
  • The earlier text says that Murray mentions the game with a somewhat different (possibly wrong) startup position. Actually, Murray gets the startup position correct, but he mixes up his descriptions of the Champion and Centaur.
