Iron Knight. Non-capturable knight.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This variant is fun to play, and the notes to the game are quite interesting. However, as the notes indicate, black will win all the time. What might give white more of a chance would be to have two iron knights, one a nightrider and the other a 'double' or 'super' knight as described in those variants. I think this will help to even out black's inherent advantage.
