Ah, that was stupid. They bet blocked by the pawn. My wrong.

The opposing Genschers can get exchanged in the starting position. That's ugly. Shouldn't they better be put behind the sea?

This is another forward reference: the harvestman ist one of the many pieces featured in Carlos Cetina's UC-170-13.

This is a forward reference to X Chess by Jeremy Gabriel Good http://www.chessvariants.org/index/msdisplay.php?itemid=MPxchess where many pieces of Seenschach are set on another innovative hourglass shaped chessboard.

This is a pretty variant. I should try it some time.

A coment on my note: of course, the reflecting bishop of the second kind was described earlier, and there is even a third kind of it, with the mirror half a square beyond the border of the board. They are all described by Ralph Betza in his article on Billard chess on this server. --JKn
