Leapers Chess. Decimal variant with additional leaping abilities for each of the pieces.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Looks quite interesting. Just downloaded the ZRF, and will attempt to play
it soon. The pairing of leaping ability with longrange pieces makes for
some fairly powerful pieces. Are the augmented, in both senses of the
word, pawns a way to keep the pieces from running amok and pacing the
game, or is there more to the 2:1 pawn ratio? It also pushes the starting
density up to 60%, and puts the 2 sides 4 empty rows apart.
Can't rate this other than interesting just yet, but I'd like to try a
game sometime.
