Chess Variant - Jester
Jester - A Chess Variant

This is an old variant of chess that is played on a board with 10 x 10 squares, with two extra pawns per player and two extra pieces per player called Jesters. These sit between the Knights and the Bishops on each side. The game is played exactly the same as normal chess in every way but incorporating these extra pieces makes for a thought-provoking experience!

Each Jester has an initial move the same as a Queen—any number of squares in any direction. Subsequent moves are limited to one or two squares forwards, backwards or sideways. The Jester cannot move diagonally after the first free move and cannot jump pieces.
