Super Knights Grand Chess. Missing description (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Bears some resemblance to an old variant called sometimes Turkish Great Chess #1 or sometimes just Great Chess, but also Indian/Turkish Grand Chess, etc. Of course, without the knights, but like the other, has amazon, chancellors, one cardinal, one queen.

Here is my own most recent attempt at a variant combining all these pieces: 90 FIDE Chess Kamil with two pairs of each simple, one pair of each combination and one ternary piece.

90 FIDE Chess Kamil is untested and doesn't look terribly appealing to me at the moment.

One larger variant I've enjoyed with enhanced knights is Gast Chess. Gast Chess works very nicely in making the longer distances less significant.
