Large variant adding an Archbishop and a General (Amazon). (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]BlueKnight wrote on 2003-03-10 UTCPoor ★I'm not sure about this one,because some variants can be very hard to play For example,the general can move anywhere(that's not my comment),my comment is if we have a general on the board,why do we even have a queen on the board or archbishop for that matter,I'm so confused! Tony Quintanilla wrote on 2003-03-10 UTCThe concept of several powerful pieces on the board is not new. There are games with even more powerful arrays. The power of the pieces is balanced, at least in part, by the larger board. The game may lend itself to tactical play as a result of the ability of these pieces. Andreas Kaufmann wrote on 2003-11-01 UTCIs castling allowed in this game? John Ayer wrote on 2003-11-02 UTCCastling is not mentioned in the only source. That's all I can tell you. loser wrote on 2004-07-04 UTC3rr rre Jeremy Good wrote on 2007-03-30 UTCThe description of this game does not mention the asymmetry contained in both the diagram and the preset. Accidental? John Ayer wrote on 2007-03-30 UTCAre you asking for an acknowledgment that the symmetry is rotational rather than mirrored? or that there are four singleton pieces in the center rather than two? Jeremy Good wrote on 2007-03-31 UTCYes, I was confused by the worded description. 'Each player's first rank, from left to right, is Rook, Knight, Bishop, Archbishop, General, King, Queen, Bishop, Knight, Rook.' I guess that means from where each person is sitting rather than from the vantage point of one side. Thank you for helping me understand this matter better. Good to know. Jörg Knappen wrote on 2012-01-20 UTCHere are Turkish Great Chess II-VI, but there is no Turkish Great Chess I. Does it hide under another name, or why is it missing? John Ayer wrote on 2012-01-21 UTCYes, there is a Turkish Great Chess, Variation One. I don't know what happened to it. I will try to write it up (again?) next week, unless someone else gets to it first. 10 comments displayedEarlier ⇧Reverse Order⇩ LaterPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
