Queens are replaced by Royal Amazons. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Tony Quintanilla wrote on 2006-03-07 UTCGood ★★★★This is a neat game. The idea of a Royal Amazon is intriguing in that it is both powerful and vulnerable. In the sample game I fell into the trap of capturing a seemingly exposed Rook, only to find my Amazon unable to escape without loosing the game. A word to the wise! Sam Trenholme wrote on 2006-03-02 UTCExcellent ★★★★★ The idea of having two royal pieces, where checkmating either piece wins (or forking both pieces with a defended piece), I think makes for a game with more tension than FIDE Chess. I especially like one of the royal pieces being very powerful; an Amazon usually is too powerful, but making it royal is a brilliant way of restraining its power. - Sam 2 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
