 Author: John William Brown. Inventor: Thomas  Havel. Jester Chess. Large variant, with four new pieces including Jester that imitates opponents last type of move. (10x11, Cells: 110) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Jester mimics method of movement of last opponent's piece moved. Short-range Archer moves without capturing or captures without moving. It is two moves per turn until one's first capture, a rule which could benefit some other large chesses.
