True variantist think about chess even while simply looking at windows, doors, carpets and pillows. ;)

If board will be extended, this shape can be used to make four-player game.

Note to editors: I'm more or less finished now.  I don't know how to link it to the zillions file under the "See also" heading, so I'd be grateful if you'd do that fore me.  Thanks!

I'm not finished yet.  I have a few more images to upload and some polishing to do before the game is ready for publication, so I would respectfully ask the editors to postpone publication until I've finished (in 24-48 hours or so).  Thanks!
