Check out Chess with Different Armies, our featured variant for July, 2024.

Dynasty Chess

Attention: this page was submitted by an unknown author.

In this game, Bishops and Rooks are renamed Princesses and Princes, and are assumed to have inherited traits from their parents, in the form of extended moves.


The board is set up exactly as in traditional chess.


Bishops are referred to as Princesses. As well as a traditional Bishop's move, they can also instead move one square horizontally or vertically. Rooks are referred to as Princes. As well as a traditional Rook's move, they can instead move one square diagonally.


The game has not yet been trialled, and no additional new rules have been formulated.
