This is by far my favorite of all the diverse Shatranj games Joe Joyce has invented. Though I'd say they are all good, this one is excellent. If chess had evolved differently, with the scheme of short range movers becoming more powerful, Atlantean Barroom Shatranj would surely represent the apex.

you got enough variants going here Joe? he he, well another great looking 'shatranj' type game, terrific idea with 'jumpingking'! + direction changing pieces very interesting!

An excellent concept game and I think it will be quite playable. Joe's
whole series of Shatranj variants are fascinating. The varying power
levels of short and medium range pieces with few or no long range pieces
make for something quite different. 

This particular variant with its direction changing moves reminds me of
Jetan.

Very nice. I think 'Atlantean Barroom Shatranj vs Symchess' preset will be interesting too.

Sounds like fun (Priestess, swift like a horse, strength of an elephant?). Can a preset button or URL be added?
