Description

Invented in 1916 by Julian S. Grant Hayward, Double Chess is a Chess variant played on a 12x16 board. Each player has two complete sets of Chess pieces starting along the 16 square edge of the board.

Rules

Rules are the same as Chess except pawns may move up to four squares on their first move and kings may only castle on their own half of the board. The player that checkmates one of the opposing kings wins.
