Check out Glinski's Hexagonal Chess, our featured variant for May, 2024.

Javelin Chess

This is a rules file for Zillions of Games, a Windows program that will let you play any puzzle or strategy board game you can feed it the rules to. With Zillions-of-Games installed, this rules file will let you play this game against your computer.

Played like standard Chess, except: * Extra row of spear-throwing pieces called Javelins. * Javelins are 'thrown' forward (or diagonally from the corners) any number of empty spaces to capture an enemy, and they disappear after capturing. * Pawns only capture one square forward, not diagonally. * In addition to checkmate, capturing the last remaining enemy piece (not including Javelins or the King) also wins.
