Here is giraffe as well, and here it's the strongest piece. But why? Was giraffes historicaly used for military purposes? Or it's merely imitating of giraffe hunt (with opponent controlling your prey)? Of course, no question about Grande Acedrex, where most of pieces are named after exotic animals. David Paulowich wrote on 2007-08-17 UTCExcellent ★★★★★This game uses an unusual initial setup to achieve a better result than The Sultan's Game, an 11x11 chess variant invented by L. Tressan in 1840. I tried replacing the Queen + Knight compound with the somewhat weaker Bishop + Nightrider compound in Unicorn Great Chess in 2001. Excellent rating for a game this old, of course Christian Freeling's Grand Chess has set a new standard for chess on the 10x10 board. 4 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
