Squirrel Chess must get some examinations. I'm playing a game on Game Courier. According to the Game Courier page, where the rules are not enforced, the board is 8x8 and the Guard plays as a Man, a non-royal King. The link "Squirrel chess" on that Game Courier page of Squirrel Chess sends to a page of "The rule of chess".

Now, I have also found this page on which I am now, "Squirrel Chess". Here the board is 10x10 and the Guard is like at Hiashatar, a piece moving like a King but also deflecting attacking pieces.

So they are 2 different games! Same name and same author.

Can the inventor clarify these and/or the editors be aware of this situation which is confusing?

Thank you
