Hide did not called this 'Viking chess', 'Viking chess' is just another game with unknown rules, i compared my page with this page - http://www.chessvariants.org/small.dir/vikingchess.html . So, semedo and viking chess have nothing common, article did not tell anything about viking chess, it was just my excuse for posting game with unknown rules. I changed text of page, so now it's clearer.

Sorry that i told 'don't attack'. I just did not find right english word: maybe, better translation is 'don't go at his foes', 'don't go to attak'... This might mean that it don't move at all.

Thanks for comment, especially about gunpowder! This game is, most probably, only small Xiang-qi variant, or small variant of another chess game, played in China. But it's still interesting to know something about it's rules.
