Construction Chess

by João Pedro Neto

The idea for this variant is to give each player the possibility to construct his own chess army, the way they seem proper.

note: A Queen is made by adding a Bishop and a Rook power to a certain piece. This idea can be used with Betza's Different Armies concept. Just give each player the proper set of constructing powers for the army he chose.
