The first known variant of chess. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating] Jose Carrillo wrote on Fri, Jun 22, 2018 12:03 PM UTC:Excellent ★★★★★My rating is specific to the Davidson Variation of Chaturanga. If Davidson was correct (about Kings being able to move into check and to be captured), this would make an interesting alternative evolution story from Chaturanga to Shatranj, which makes a nicer transition story from Chaturanga to Shatranj to Chess. Chaturanga - Davidson Variation (Rule Enforcing) Presets: Original ashtapada Indian board. Alternate uncheckered plain Persian board (without ashtapada markings).
