Chess Jester:

As in the traditional game of chess, the Chess Jester battle is waged between the White and the Black Kingdoms. Within each Kingdom there is both the King's Court (solid color pieces) and the Jester's Realm (solid color pieces with opponent's color stripe). The Courts and Realms set opposite of each other on a four-sided game board. Within the Kings Court resides all the traditional pieces in their traditional places, the Queen is always on her own color. Within the Jester's Realm resides all the traditional pieces in their traditional places, except the Prince and Jester now replace the King and Queen, the Jester is always on his own color. The King's Court White (white court) as in the traditional game is set up with the white square on the right, The Realms will always be on the left of their respective Courts.
