You are on the backup site for Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Christian Boineau has invented a simple game related to chess. It is a simple game to built and it will remind some endgames when only few pieces remain on the board. However at Donkan there is a new rule which completely change the play: there are 2 ways to win, either by capturing the opposite King or by penetrating the central case (the &quot;Castle&quot;) with his own King.</p> <p>Many other board games can be found on this very interesting site (in French).</p>
