Horseman's Chess. Game where pieces mount and dismount.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

That's an interesting idea. I suppose if the capturing piece is mounted then it would remove the target's mount.

My goal in this game was to decompose the standard chess pieces (kind of like a Fusion Chess in reverse) and remix the bits. Arbitrary combinations turned out to be too powerful, but the mount idea seems to be a good level of modularity.
