You are on the backup site for Chessvariants.com. 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.



The Chess Variant Pages



Maces, Shields, and Horse-apults

This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

The preset is here.

The rules are here.

This game is much like Maces and Horse-apults. The biggest difference is that the Pawns are "shielded" and cannot be captured by the Maces.
