Construction Chess. The idea for this variant is to give each player the possibility to construct his own chess army.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

It's me... Probably 4 powers of rook is silly, but, maybe, have still 3 powers of rook, but 4 powers of bishop and knight?

Good, but needs another rules for castling. What about this: impossible to
give castling to pieces on 2nd rank; castling is normal for pieces in
rooks' squares; when castling with piece on queen's knight's square,
king moves two squares; with piece on queen's bishop's and king's
knight's square, king moves on square; king swaps position with adjecent
piece.
Or use castling rules from Fischer's random chess or castling like here:

Also, why there is no en-passant? I can suggest rules of duble and triple
step and en-passant from Omega chess (of course, there are many variants of
duble step and en-passant, why not use one of them?).
Also i can suggest to have 4 powers of rook, bishop and knight, but
possible to use only 18 of powers (counting castling power).
