External Link: Coordinator Chess

Description

Extra pieces are the Coordinators which move as queens but capture in cooperation with the king. After a Coordinator move, any enemy piece that stands on the same rank as the friendly king, and on the same file as the Coordinator, or vice versa, is captured. The intersection points of the orthogonals is where capture occurs. The Coordinator can capture two pieces at once. The Coordinator is stronger than a light piece, but weaker than a rook.

A Zillions implementation and more information is here.
