Variant on 10 by 8 board. (10x8, Cells: 80) (Recognized!)[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Kevin Pacey wrote on 2018-03-01 UTCExcellent ★★★★★I like that the pieces, including the Januses, can hope to usually develop smoothly in this variant, nice for a 10x8 board. Kevin Pacey wrote on 2017-12-19 UTCIn case the promotion rules for Janus Chess aren't clear, note that at least Fergus' preset for Janus Chess allows for promotion to a Janus piece. H. G. Muller wrote on 2008-10-15 UTCStandard Staunton-style piece set for this game: Gary Gifford wrote on 2008-02-06 UTCSince the pre-set for Janus Chess has Kings and Queens reversed from that in the rules, I wanted to point out that castling long and short are now reversed. But, to castle Kingside with the current pre-set, the Kings would go to 'i' and the rooks to 'h'... to castle Queenside the Kings would go to 'b' and the Rooks to 'c'... At least that is what I think. Gary Gifford wrote on 2008-01-14 UTCI believe that the Janus pre-set has the Kings and Queens reversed. Although the reversal looks natural, the rules state: '... the king is at the left of the queen, so the queen still starts at a square of her own color.' I do not think it matters much for the tournament... However, for a serious Janus player who would be familiar with openings it could be an issue. I know that I would not like to play Fide Chess with Kings and Queens reversed.

CVPage 2004 Archbishop Chess copies the piece-mix and shifts Janus(Cardinal) to d & g. Cardinal is marginally more logical than Marshall(R+N); both compounds go back to 17th-century Carrera's. 9 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
