Ajax Orthodox Chess. Orthodox Chess with Ajax-Chessmen, and droping Ajax-Ministers. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The additional Commoner moves to rooks, knights and bishops increases the complexity of the game in a manner so exquisite that immediately induces me to transfer the concept to the symmetric setup on a 9x8 board.

José: Would you like to try it? I bring forward a fantastic game! We could play it with or without dropping ministers, as you like.

Following Fergus's suggestion for naming the symmetric setup, I would name this new variant: Ajax Bigamous Chess.
