Missing description (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Charles Gilman wrote on 2006-04-25 UTCGood ★★★★A further development of this would be a 10x10 version of my Ecumenical Chess, achieved by putting a Canvasser (Rook+Camel) behind the Queen's Bishop, a Gnu (Knight+Camel) behind the Queen's Knight, and Caliphs (Bishop+Camel, two because colourbound) behind the King's Bishop and Knight.

Namik Zade wrote on 2006-03-22 UTCGood ★★★★In view of principle of 'exception of two identical pieces in one number from three squares' is possible to offer 2 more variants of initial position in Symchess.(In view of preservation of the order R,N,B,Q,K,B,N,R). o o o o o o o o o o-3rd row, U R N B Q K B N R U-2nd row, A(d1)..C(g1)-1st row (I variant) o o o o o o o o o o-3rd row, R N U B Q K B U N R-2nd row, A(c1)... C(h1)-1st row (II variant) First of them can be rejected from aesthetic reasons (normal castling impossible). The second has lack. Total of protection of pawns - it is minimal(2x4+2x3+6x1=20). Opening setup from Symchess and Sam Trenholmes` variant for Symchess are the optimal because, the total sum of protection of pawns is maximal(=22) and also all pawns are protected. 4 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
