Knight-Pawn Chess

This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

Knight Pawns which can move like knights or pawns, can move as far as the midway point if they find themselves behind it and can be taken by en passant.

There are supercastling and uncastling rules (formal rules to be posted soon).
