Double Chess (Skirmish)





Invented in 1916 by Julian S. Grant Hayward. Played on a 12x16 board; each player has two complete sets of chess pieces starting along the 16 square edge of the board. Rules are the same as chess except pawns may move up to 4 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.
