Logs for Little River Chess.

Win by checkmating or stalemating your opponent. Kings are confined to a palace. No pieces, friendly or foe can enter a palace. They cannot pass through a palace... BUT they CAN CHECK THROUGH a palace.

Kings cannot face each other across an open board. A King that would have no choice but to move in line with the other is either checkmated or stalemated.

Please see complete rules before playing.
