Kings take up four squares each, all of which must be attacked to check. (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]George Duke wrote on 2005-02-16 UTCExcellent ★★★★★'GHI,LargeCVm': A game of perfect initial-array symmetry, Giant-King belongs in the sub-cross-thread including Cobra Ch. and Giant Chess featuring pieces having multiple-square occupancy. King takes up four squares at once and consciously is checked the way Karakus' Giant is captured: a fully four-square attack; whereas Cobra is captured at any of its 4 squares. A worthy chess not at all because of starting symmetry, but for its interesting mix including Gryphon, Wildebeest(Gnu), Cardinal, strong pieces to combat enhanced King. In fact, the King's move's one-step improving that other Giant's two-step, and Pawn's effecting promotion of other pieces, together make for quite the original, balanced CV.
