Since Java is no longer supported in most browsers, our Java applets probably will not run unless you install an extension that will run them. We recommend installing the CheerpJ Applet Runner extension on Edge, Chrome, or another Chromium browser. If your browser still does support Java, and you're not using this extension, make sure this site is listed in your Java exceptions list. You should find this in the Security tab of your Java control panel.

Amazon Knights Chess

If you had a Java-capable browser, you could play Amazon Knights Chess here.
Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once

The queen has a knight's move also, and the other first-rank pieces are also knights. Pritchard calls this "Amazon Queen" chess but perhaps it is also called "Amazon Knights" chess. The "Amazon" is a common name for a queen which can also move as a knight.
