An interesting variant that reminds me of Chinese Chess a little bit, in that the pieces are all fairly weak compared to that of orthodox chess. It's also less complicated to understand than at least some of Gary's other variants.

Nice variant because of it's Old Monkey weaker than King.

the old monkey-king is also more able to retreat than move forwards.
