King Arthur's Chess 72

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.

King Arthur's Chess 72 is played on a round board of 72 cells (in eight orbital ranks and nine radial files). The odd number of cells relieves the Bishop of the colour-bound confinement of more traditional boards.
