Shambhala chess. Maybe, it's the misterious first form of chess? Actually, most probably, not. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Greg Strong: yes, you are right, but in games, where king can make one knight leap in any square don't use two pieces for king in it's two different states (although it's more practical).

p. s.: the fact that this page was published on 1st of April is just coincedence (or joke of editors :) ). But still i don't think that it's actually first form of chess. But anybody can make such 'historicalvariants', i just was the first (probably).
