If you had a Java-capable browser, you could play Bastardo here.

Italian variant. Each plays for himself/herself. Capture the enemy king and control the remaining enemy army.

I omitted the rule about making an arbitrary move, if you are otherwise unable to move.

I also disallowed initial two-pawn moves, since it's not clear which pawns would be allowed to do this.
