King Battler. King usually moves as a queen.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Having followed a random link I note that the piece described in the last four comments (King that can move as Queen even out of, but not through or into, check) was used in John Love-Jensen's SuperKing, posted in 1996. Therefore he seems to be its inventor (unless anyone knows of any earlier use). Whether two such pieces could face each other in that game I have yet to ascertain.
