This is a link to an external site for: Crown


Crown is a chess variant, invented by L.U. Kisliouk. <p>Crown is played with a usual chess set, with the following differences: the queen moves similar as the king, i.e., only one square. Before the game, players secretly decide whether their king or their queen has the crown. When a player takes the piece of the crown of the opponent, he wins the game. <p>The webpage of Crown contains a lenghty description and a sample game.
