Preset is here.

A very chess-like game played on a larger board (100 squares ( 10 x 10)). Special catapults (Horse-apults) move as do Kings. They can toss pieces a Knight's move from their current location.

Deadly Maces also move as do Kings. They do not capture by displacement, but by constantly swinging their mace weapons at adjacent enemies.
