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.

Link to: Shatranj Plus

Shatranj Kamil I (Complete Chess variation I) on a 10x10 board, with the addition of Camel pieces. Shatranj Kamil II (Complete Chess variation II) on a 10x10 board, with the addition of War Machines, instead of Camels. Shatranj Al-Husun (Citadel Chess) on a 10x10 board with extra "citadel" squares on the corners. Includes a more powerful War Machine piece. Shatranj Timur (Tamerlane's Chess) on an 11x10 board, with one extra "citadel square" for either player. Includes some interesting long range pieces, such as the Giraffe, Picket, Camel and War Machine. The promotion rules are much stronger than in the original, in an attempt to speed up the end-game somewhat.
