Jetan is a fascinating chess variant. I am used to Jens Markmann's Jetan.zrf, which uses the same (I think) rules as the Variant 'Chained Wild Jetan with Wild Thoats' in ChainedWildJetan.zrf from jetan_erb.zip. <p> The 'Jester' in Sidney LeVasseur's Kings Court variant moves the same as the Free Padwar, except that the Jester is allowed an initial Alfil-jump in the game. The Jester and Free Padwar appear to be the weakest 'multiple path' pieces used in chess variants.
