I had an idea very similar to this one ages ago but completely forgot about it! Good to see it being fleshed out.

Just wondering,

What if the knight in this game (and the knight's compounds) were replaced by Nightriders or Roses?

AND .. the king's definition would be changed to : moves like the Ace but one step at the time ? That is (Wazir+Ferz+Knight.)

What the game's name mean in English anyway? (sorry for my ignorance.)

'What the game's name mean in English anyway? '

The literal translation would be staircase chess, but like the phrase on which it is patterned esprit de l'escalier the literal translation does not convey the full meaning of the phrase.

A more apt translation might be 'Should really have been thought of before Chess'
