Bishops Chess. (Updated!) Chess with two light-squared and two dark-squared Bishops on each side.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Thanks for your feedback.

I have reinvented this chess variant into Kingsmen. The pawns are on the third rank like in Shogi, and cannot double advance on the first move (and hence no en passant).

Also like Shogi, all non-royal pieces in Kingsmen promote on the last three ranks. A promoted piece can move like a King (one square in any direction) in addition to its original moves.
