Notchess. A family of games with Chess and Chess-Variant pieces but no King. () [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Because I needed something to focus it on. Otherwise it would just be a range of random variants, and harder for readers to relate to.

Why it must necessary be derived from something?

Well Notchess 80 is derived from Yang Qi, which has neither. I could probably devise a Notchess based on Wildeurasian Qi, which has both those pieces as well as the Gnu. That one would have an odd number of files.

How about queen and tank in Notchess 80?

These seem like a very good idea, aesthetically pleasing, and thumbs up for acknowledging Extinction Chess antecedent.
