Variant on 8 by 12 board with Chancellors and Jesters. (12x8, Cells: 96) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating] David Paulowich wrote on Sat, Feb 4, 2012 11:36 PM UTC:Seven years have passed since the last game of King's Court was played on this site. This large (12x8) chess variant inspired the following set of rules. I never succeeded in inventing a game using these rules and I no longer have the free time to conduct the necessary playtesting. Rule One: Only simple pieces like the Rook, Bishop, and Nightrider have unlimited movement. Rule Two: Compound pieces cannot move more than four squares. For example: a 'Queen' would actually be a Q4, limited to a maximum move of four squares. Rule Three: A compound of three pieces cannot move more than two squares. The Chancellor in King's Court is an example of such a piece.
