Christian Boineau has invented a simple game related to chess. It is a simple game to built and it will remind some endgames when only few pieces remain on the board. However at Donkan there is a new rule which completely change the play: there are 2 ways to win, either by capturing the opposite King or by penetrating the central case (the &quot;Castle&quot;) with his own King.</p> <p>Many other board games can be found on this very interesting site (in French).</p>
