Large modern variant of historic Shatranj, with more pieces and flying carpets. (11x9, Cells: 84) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]LCC wrote on 2003-01-15 UTCExcellent ★★★★★As a nitpicking observation, the elephant's movement can't be hampered by the central square anyway, nor can it ever use the magic carpets. That information (that the central square can't be jumped) is only important for the dabbabah's movement. I like this variant a lot, still. I personally enjoy variants with little power on the board. Peter Aronson wrote on 2002-11-12 UTCGood ★★★★This looks interesting! A question about promotion: once a Pawn promotes to a General, can the resulting General then exit the camp and reenter, promoting to Grand Vizier? Also, if a Pawn or General rides a magic carpet square to the opponent's back two ranks, does that result in promotion? 2 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
