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

I think my idea of giving white two iron knights would give white a chance to win, especially if one iron knight was a 'double move' or 'super knight' and one a nightrider. A nightrider alone will not mate the black king (experience from 'Nightrider Chess.') With the help of a 'double knight,' the two iron knights should be able to win. I have played 'Iron Knight' many times, and lost many times. I have, however, been able occasionally to draw perpetual check by staying close the black king. If that's the purpose of this variant, its hard to do, but it is possible. I would like to see a two iron knight variant as described above.
