Mad King 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.


This Zillions implementation contains two variants:

Emperor-style Mad King. Movement similar to the Emperor in several Shogi variants. Presented by R. Wayne Schmittberger as "Emperor King Chess".


Amazon-style Mad King. This King is permitted to take an undefended opposing King as an Amazon. Similar to the exposure rule of Generals in XiangQi.
