Variant on 11 by 11 board from 19th century Germany. (11x11, Cells: 121) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Greg Strong wrote on 2020-09-11 UTCI have rewritten most of this page with updated information from Jean-Louis Cazaux's excellent new book A World of Chess, co-authored with Rick Knowlton. The previous version had the initial setup incorrect (both of a player's bishops on the same color) and incorrectly identified the author of a book on chess variants as the game's inventor. Additional historical information has also been added. I still need to make a similar revision to The Emperor's Game Anders Jensen wrote on 2016-10-06 UTCThe game can be played at the website jocly.com under the name sultanspiel. Here it is the rule for promotion that a pawn only can be promoted to a captured piece. Because of that a player who haven't had any pieces captured can't move a pawn to the last rank. Another rule not mentioned here is that pawns who had made a single step move at their first move may choose between a singlestep move and double step move at their next move. 2 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
