Kibbitz Listing Game: Modern Shatranj Log: bruck-moonbuzz-2006-140-834 Uri Bruck wrote on 2008-02-29strictly speaking it isn't one of the tabiyaat. The way we played, each setting up the pieces on his half of the board, so to speak, before the actual battle started, reminded me of the tabiyaat. The wikipedia entry on shatranj has a couple of them. It's a small and inadequate sample. Murray has more, compiled from a few sources.
