Chess II. Two extra files with two additional pieces (princes) on each side. (10x8, Cells: 80) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

In the variant: "moves along/across files" for the prince. Does that mean "along files and across ranks"? Cause this is a bit of contradiction and I see the prince piece as either a 2-square queen or a 2-square queen that cannot move horizontally in this variant. I'm hoping it's just a 2-square queen.

Anyway I like the basic form and the variant where there are multiple kings. Feels like playing sho shogi again.

Game looks promising. Since players can win in two different ways, they can work on two strategies/fronts simultaneously during a game unlike in ordinary chess. Is the game available commercially?

I am going to try this game.  Is there yet a place on the web (besides
Zillions of Games--I don't yet have this program, though I would like to
get it) to play this variant?

Any gamescores to date that anyone would like to offer up?

A clarifiaction is needed on castling: is it the distance moved by the King or by the Rook that is th same as in FIDE Chess?
