Paulovits's Game

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

Click here to start the preset, with Joe Joyce's alternate setup.

This is the preset for Paulovits's Game, a decimal chess variant that adds a Camel+King (General) and an Alibaba+King (Pasha). Pawns may advance one, two, or three steps in their first move.

The Knights are significantly weaker on the bigger board. A possible way to improve the game a little is to use Mats Winther's Donkey, which moves like the Knight but may continue a non-capturing move with another step in the same direction. (The funny notation of this piece would be cNmNN2 .)
