Heraldic Chess I
You may only play the pieces shown on the cards currently in your hand. The object is to capture the enemy king. The deck is shuffled after every move. If you cannot make a legal move, all your cards are returned to the deck and are redealt.
There are many other games that can be played with a heraldic set. Especially these involve cards, dice, and so forth. Much of the fun seems to be experimenting with friends about the rules, so I have not made any applets.
You can obtain a set from the game's inventor, Modest Solans, in Spain. Click here for more information, or here for the rulebook.
These are simple illustrations rather than strong opponents.
