Super Knights Grand Chess

This is a rules file for Zillions of Games, a Windows program that will let you play any puzzle or strategy board game you can feed it the rules to. With Zillions-of-Games installed, this rules file will let you play this game against your computer.

The Zillions package consists of the original Super Knights game which contained the Chancellor, Archbishop and Amazon. It also features two more sub-variations described below.

The variation Quad Power! is like Super Knights Grand Chess except that the Amazon is replaced by another Archbishop, and each side can optionally drop 5 ninja pawns.

Super Knights 2

In Super Knights 2, the Knights are replaced by the Ferz Knight and Wazir knight which make a diagonal step or an othogonal step respectively in addition to their knight jump.

The board is setup as shown.

During play, 5 Ninja Pawns can be dropped into an empty space ( 1 per turn) on 2nd rank and optionally pushed forward 1 or more squares to the middle. The Ninja Pawn is a special pawn that can move/capture like a regular pawn as well as move 1 space sideways.
When in enemy half of board it can also capture 1 space sideways.
