re: make your chess variant

continuation of closed topic:

minichess: 5x5 board with starting pos
rnbqk/PPPPP/5/ppppp/RNBQK w Qq - 0 1

superchess:10x10 board with starting pos.
rnbqskqbnr/pppppppppp/10/10/10/10/10/10/PPPPPPPPPP/RNBQSKQBNR w KSks - 0 1

S is superqueen, moves like Q or N. Just as Q moves like R or B. So S moves like R or B or N.

I already suggested Garner variant to be accepted as a "small chess" variant. It would be nice, as such variants tend to be fun.

I doubt that another large board variant would be accepted here.

3x3 chess

for those who don't know or don't have the link; 3x3 has been completely solved for some years now. [it cannot really be a game; there is no good starting position; but it can have good mate-in-n problems.]
