I think, any game with 10 files and additional pair of pieces can have such
variant (additional pair of pieces can also be placed like cannons in this
-here openings will be closer to orthodox chess openings). For example,
Omega chess: champions are in these places and wizards are in imiginary
Good for people, who are lazy to draw new boards.

Thanks for the rating.

Personally, I am not very satisfied with the starting position. Switching the Queen and the Archbishop, I believe, would make a better game because it balances the Knight-compounds. However, I chose this one because RBQCKABR is basically the Gothic Chess position, which is patented.


I updated the page to introduce a minor Shuffle variant. This gives a bigger opening book, but doesn't eliminate opening altogether.

I have been known to set up my Knights in very strange places. I prefer your smaller game to Eric's Great Chess, which squeezes all the pieces of the historic chess variant Great Chess into a 10x8 board.
