This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.Herculean Chess is a 12x12 square board variant with new flying versions of the rooks and bishops. These compliment two pairs of jumpers: Knights and Zebras that are augmented with Ferz and Wazir movements. Ten ninja pawns round off the standard army of 12 pawns, 2 bishops, 2 rooks, queen and king.
The rules are exactly as in standard chess except for flexible castling, and piece/pawn movement.
