External Link: Gustavian Adjutant Chess

Description

The objective is checkmate and pieces move as in orthodox chess (the Adjutant is used in a variant).

Extended castle rule: when castling the king may jump three squares, but it can also jump two as usual. The rook ends up on its usual square. The extended castle rule makes play on the wings easier to achieve. The king can rapidly take control over the kingside or queenside corner square. The curious but useful board was invented by king Gustav III of Sweden (see Gustav III's Chess).

A Zillions implementation and more information is here.
