Why this title A A Royal and His Pet, with 2 A? A typo?

a Royal and his Pet

I'd suggest different piece images for the tower and guard; especially FIDE pieces' images being used for different pieces is confusing. (Maybe the war machine and elephant?)

I'm also curious how putting both Men (slower) on one side and both Knights (faster) on the other affects play.

For some reason the Diagram does not recognize the keyword 'royal' in the line royal=8. (And as a consequence considers the Rex the only royal piece.) I suspect there is some unprintable character in front of it, like <tab> or <cr>, because when I copy-paste your diagram description from the Page Source to a page on my own computer, everything works fine. (The Diagram script does strip leading spaces.)

Just delete that line, and retype it by hand, and it should work.

Note that to make the Diagram play this according to your rules, you would have to specify additional parameters


Otherwise it would assume the Rex is the only royal piece (because you mentioned that last). Or assume you would have to capture both of them to win. Finally, baring=0 indicates that losing all non-royal pieces also counts as a loss.

I don't know why it was sizing the columns like that but I fixed it by specifying a width in the <td> element.
