White (to move) can still force mate with King and Queen against King in most of these variants.

SOMETIMES MATES: Max-distance-queen chess, and Deposable queen (Cinderella? Were-Queen?).

NEVER MATES: Virgin chess, Negative relay queen chess, Nice-queen chess, also this bare king endgame cannot happen in Revive-queen chess.
