Which side moves first? I can see that it wont actually make a difference to game-play but some variants have a standard for it so I am curious to know weather this one does or not.

Do pinching Pawns promote? Their greater range would seem to make it unnecessary, but then again promotion is kind-of what makes a pawn a pawn (in FIDE chess and most variants that I have seen that are derived from it at least). I would assume they do but I would like some clarification on the matter.

Giant Chess. 16x16 board with the same pieces as Turkish Chess, but also the "Dev" piece which takes up four squares. (16x16, Cells: 256) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Perhaps a piece with the combined movements of the knight and flamingo(1,6 jumper). The flamingo move would allow the piece to be much more mobile on the large board, it might be a good idea to restrict the flamingo move to passive only as this would allow the piece much greater mobility without too greatly increasing its attack capabilities.

There seems to be a problem with the showing of the current  on the picture of the board in my game, it does not show the piece that moved most recently in its new location and often shows the move box indicators where nothing has moved. This problem is only in the picture & each move is fixed a few moves later ex: move 6 is shown incorrectly when sent, but the pieces moved thierin are in their proper places when you send move 7(but the piece moved in move 7 is not).
