The starting position of Paulovits's Game is RNBPaGQKBNR on the 1st and 10th rank. I assume that you cannot visit my homepage due to restrictions. Yes, your assumption about the Swedish Cannon is correct. In Gustavian Cannon Chess I inserted it in the extra corners, and it works great. Link to Zillions site, here.

As I understand the rules, if a jump move DOES exist, the Cannon is NOT allowed to slide like a Rook. Am I right ?

I like this piece. Not only is it a piece that hasn't been thought of before, but also it's a piece whose move is easy to visualize.

I have now added Swedish Cannons to my 10x10 Mastodon Chess. Note the obvious advantages with this type of cannon in this 10x10 context. It is very mobile while, unlike the Chinese Cannon, it jumps both when moving and capturing. In the initial position it can slide along the first rank because the condition is fulfilled that there exist no jump moves. /Mats
