Daniil, did you took a look to the Clash of Civilizations variant, by Namik Zede?


PS: Where are you from?

Interesting, what about playing with one of 'human' armies against another human army? Of course, Turkish army will win most of games, but what about others?

I prefer this set up for Omega chess than the official one.
It is a regular board without odd citadels - althoug I myself created a
'citaldeled' chess variant (Shutur) - and on the more than natural
'Great Chess' board, the 10x10. With this setup you have exactly the
same opening lines of chess, because the pieces of FIDE chess are as if on
their usual 8x8 positions and distancies; so Knights don't have minor
powers and it wouldnt be needed the 'Templar Knigt' patch..

But don't get me wrong. I like Omega chess and even have one of the
'first' boards they produced (nr. 816 I believe). It is a good game
(probably the finest way to put and combine Tamerlane weak pieces on a
functional, atractive and facinating good game.
