Chessmen-At-Arms. A wargame with chess pieces.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

chessmen-at-arms struck me because it is another attempt to integrate
wargames with conventional chess... 

aside from the 'chinese army chess' (super stratego) and the 'risk
chess,' are there any other chess/wargame variants?

interestingly, i had worked up a board for a game called, 'russo-german
chess'... to recreate the 'eastfront' of ww2 in a chess format.

in theory, the pieces are going to be 'empty containers' and the two
players would be able to secretly apply 'points' to their respective
containers from a pool of points, before battles were resolved.

i hadn't gotten to the movement mechanics... whether it should be a lot
of german moves, then a russian response, or an i-go-you-go like most
chess variants... in any event there are prototype map and some vague
piece theory...
