Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once
This is a very well-conceived large-board variant. It is available commercially from my cyberfriend, Daniel C. Macdonald of Canada.
Pieces move as in regular chess. Pawns may advance 1, 2 or 3 squares on their initial moves, and be captured en passant.
There are two new pieces.
|Champion||2,2 or 2,0 or 1,0 leaper|
|Wizard||3,1 or 1,1 leaper. Note that this piece is color-bound.|
