Hybrids. Standard pieces combine and split. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Recently I found a similar variant: <a href='/play/erf/ConfedCh.html'>Confederation</a> . The main difference is that in Confederation a piece cannot leave the hybrid while neither capturing nor forming a new hybrid with another piece. This restriction reduced the combinative power of hybrids and the game seems (for me ;) ) less interesting than Hybrids.
