 By Nuno  Cruz. Modern Kamil. Two variants that add the Camel to the standard Orthochess array on enlarged boards. (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Yes, because they can still get right out, and then they do not hit the Pawns in two. The reduced board size, 68 squares makes the most sense (Grand Chess-style second best). 68 squares is size for most bifurcation pieces of Winther. How about a variant with mechanism to alternate the power of the new piece between Camel and Zebra? Fourriere uses that technique in Jacks & Witches between Canon and Cannon, where after any move of Cannon/Canon, player can switch it to the other one, never having both in effect.

Another alternative would be to put the Camels between the Bishops and the royal couple, to make them to Knights as Bishops are to Rooks and vice versa in hte array as well as in their move. Of course even better is Wildebeest Chess, which adds a piece that is to the Knight as the Queen is to the Rook.
