Hans Bodlaender writes:
In this book, Pritchard describes twenty chess variants in detail. Eighteen of these can be played with normal chess equipment; in addition there are Xiangqi, Chinese Chess, and Shogi, Japanese Chess. ...
Each of the variants is given with complete rules which are described in a very precise and clear way. In addition, the history of the variants is described, some sample games are given, and often additional information is given. ... For the variants that are described in more detail, more sample games are given, but also the reader is learned some basic principles of how to play the game well: some opening theory or endgame theory or common strategic or tactical aspects of the variants are described.
