Check out Chess with Different Armies, our featured variant for July, 2024.

Shatranj Kamil X

This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

The name Shatranj Kamil, meaning Perfect Chess or Complete Chess, was given to several chess variants on 10x10 boards around 1000 years ago. In my search for a perfect blend of pieces, I have examined games from distant places like China and Japan and Mars!

This preset enforces the rules and detects check, checkmate, and stalemate. If you find any bugs in the routines used for enforcing the rules, please report them to Greg Strong.Click the button below the image to play.
