With the 16 standard pieces and 4 powerful leapers. (10x8, Cells: 80) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Abdul-Rahman Sibahi wrote on 2007-03-21 UTCGood ★★★★I am still playing the opening moves in one of these games. However, I've noticed that the knights are immediately under attack from the bishops from the very first move (provided a central pawn is pushed,) and once they're captured the bishops immediately threaten to capture the smothered rooks. Also, they're only protected by the two new major pieces. David Paulowich wrote on 2007-03-21 UTCCan a chess variant be too exciting? After 1.e2-e4, j7-h6 2.j1-j4 the White Lion threatens j4-i5, attacking the undefended Rook(i8). You can expect to jump right into middlegame tactics in this variant. Examples: see my two computer assisted test games, recorded on this site.

The Unicorn is not easy to handle, but it is a very elegant piece. 3 comments displayedEarlier ⇧Reverse Order⇩ Later⇧ Latest⇩Permalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
