Play Modern Carrera's Chess with Jocly


Modern Carrera's Chess, created separately by both Fergus Duniho and Sam Trenholme, is played with the initial setup of Carrera's Chess and by the rules of the more recent Capablanca's Chess. It is played exactly like Chess except for the introduction of two new pieces, a couple extra Pawns, and a new castling rule. The two new pieces are the Archbishop (a compound of Bishop and Knight), which starts in the b file, and the Chancellor (a compound of Rook and Knight), which starts in the i file. The new castling rule is that the King moves three spaces toward the Rook when castling. Otherwise, the usual castling restrictions apply. While playing this game on Jocly, you castle by moving the King to the Rook's space.
