Windows 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.

Windows Chess is played on a board inspired by an arch window in my neighbourhood. It uses the usual chess pieces, with one extra piece, the Conqueror (a Queen-Knight compound) which is purely a promotion piece. The rules of the game, along with lots of illustrative graphics are found here.
