Just as I posted my previous comment I saw )zz038)A.Black's last comment.  So this is in response to that.

zz038)A.Black has 'fixed the pawn on the last file, now that pawns can also move sideways.'  Now they are now longer stuck.  

He also wrote: 'Gary Gifford if you want to make the changes to 46-square Bland Chess, you can make the new page and I will tell the editor to delete this 46-square game and take mine out of the contest, if you make a better 46-squares game for the contest.'

Response: (zz038)A.Black - I think there is no longer a need for me to make a variant here.  You have corrected the pawn problem which is good.  I do suggest this addition for the rules and setup:

'The players, prior to the start of a game, may replace one or both of their War Machines with either a Knight, or a Modern War Machine.'  

But, that can be your call.  I really like having the Knights in your original Bland Chess... they are the most powerful pieces in that game and are fun to use and to watch out for.

Best regards, g
