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

Besides an iron 'super knight' and an iron nightrider to give white a chance to win, another option might be to give white three iron standard knights, rather than one. For the most part, the best white can hope for with one iron knight is a stalemate by repetition. It would probably give the white player more incentive with the other knight options, rather than scrambling for just a draw (which presumably is a considered a 'win' for white.)
