(8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Charles Gilman wrote on 2005-05-04 UTCGood ★★★★The idea of marking ten years of these pages with ten-direction pieces is an interesting one. Ironically a couple of variants of mine posted just before the contest was announced use such pieces - the Nitan in Goldchess and the Caman in Silverchess (see http://www.chessvariants.org/other.dir/gs_chess.html for both). These pieces even have ten moves - the Knight moves plus the two forwardmost Camel moves and vice versa. It also occurs to me that an enhanced Queen could have ten directions as well - as a Viceace (Queen+2 front Knight moves) or Viceacme (Queen+2 front Camel moves) Good to see another locally-themed variant. Quite a collection is being built up across N. Europe.
