Modern Kamil. Two variants that add the Camel to the standard Orthochess array on enlarged boards. (10x10, Cells: 100) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Yes, because they can still get right out, and then they do not hit the Pawns in two. The reduced board size, 68 squares makes the most sense (Grand Chess-style second best). 68 squares is size for most bifurcation pieces of Winther. How about a variant with mechanism to alternate the power of the new piece between Camel and Zebra? Fourriere uses that technique in Jacks & Witches between Canon and Cannon, where after any move of Cannon/Canon, player can switch it to the other one, never having both in effect.
