|This looks like an interesting variant. Did you originate this yourself? I would be interested in seeing some variants on this site too.||-|

|I have some questions...and also some comments about this game.
If \"Black\'s\" king is captured, does \"Black\" continue to play with his other pieces?
Or are all of the \"Black\" pieces removed?
Or is \"Black\" out of the game and the player who captured \"Black\'s\" king gets to convert all of the \"Black\" pieces to his color?
If the pawn makes it to the other side, can it be promoted and if so, can it also be promoted to a king?
And another question about that pawn, can the pawn be moved or capture \"backward\" toward his starting position? Once the pieces move out the king becomes very exposed to long-range attacks! Remember, there are two additional Queens prowling about the board not to mention the extra Rook, Bishop, Knight and 7 pawns against your fewer pieces and pawns.
You will also note that the pawn is now like a \"baby\" bishop; he moves one square and is restricted to his color square throughout the game so pay attention to the square your Bishop is starting on as you will have only one pawn that is the opposite color of your other four pawns! You will need your Bishop to support that one pawn.
Watch out for that Knight! He has more power than you might think. Why? For one,the Knight is the only piece that can \"jump over\" other pieces! Secondly, the \"enemy\" pieces are very close. For example, \"White\" is in the lower left corner and moves first: 1. Ne2 \"Black\", who is in the lower right corner, has no way of saving his queen! Of course \"Blue\" in the upper left corner could capture the Knight on e2 if he is the next player to move. If \"Black\" is the next player to move he might fight back with 1. ... Nd2 which gives him a square to move his queen, if he still has one to move. As you can see, this becomes a real bloody game fast. So the weaker players will first gang up on the strongest player on the board if they hope to have some chance of winning.
As for \"variants\" the whole idea is to sharpen your thinking ability. That is the benefit of playing chess. After a few rounds of this game, regular chess will look more easy to play.

|The disjunction of black\'s bishops with white\'s bishops is going to make the game unbalanced. Either swap a pair of knights & bishops for one of white\'s and one of black\'s armies, or change all the bishops to knights.
Can pawns promote? Can they move \"sideways\" or just the \"forward\" diagonal. They are not all the same distance from the opposite \"edge\" of the board. If they don\'t promote, you have quite a different game.||-|
