Variant on 11 by 11 board from 19th century Germany. (11x11, Cells: 121) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating] Georgi Markov wrote on Mon, Jan 9 01:33 PM UTC in reply to Jörg Knappen from Sun Jan 1 07:24 AM:Thank you very much for your comments! You certainly have a point. It never occurred to me that Oettinger might have been just guessing, I assumed he knew the author's name from elsewhere and opted for "Tressau" even though the last letter looks a lot like "n" indeed. Plus the only Tressans I could find while surfing the web were French. On an unrelated subject, I shamelessly appropriated your Archchancellor and Crown Princess for a reformed variant of the Duke of Rutland's chess based on Charles Gilman's Modern Manners, here: https://hal-univ-paris13.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-03737330/document (And of course the short superqueen suggested by Stefan Härtel and me for a reformed version of Turkish great chess is your Archchancellor again but I don't think I was aware of it when writing that paper). I think those two pieces (RNK and BNK) work really well on large boards.
