Colours are changed from black and white to blue and white.

Rear pawns can move one two or three spaces on their first move relative to other pieaces in their way, otherwise they move the same as normal pawn

Prince moves like a knight but along the diagonals, should be able to change colour if they reach the other side of the board, so if the blue prince makes it to the other side he can sit on the white squares, by moving one square to the left or right but towards the center, and vice versa for the other prince. Basically, the white back line allows princes to change to blue and the blue rear line allows them to move onto white. other they stay on the colour the start, white starts blue and blue white, just like the king.

Princess can move three spaces, as a queen moves, but can also hop over her own colour.

Royal Draughts is also possible.

That is pretty much where I am at with it today.... Hugs

 So I have decided after playing it that 10 x 10 is too small. So 12 x 12 is better there are therefore two princes and two princess.


10 x 10 is to be a training bourd for the 12 x 12.

Colours are changed:

White is now white with blue trims

and black is Blue with Gold trims 

Rear pawns have blue top if white, and gold top if blue, to differenciate between the frount and rear pawns.

Queen on colour at start as always, princes start either side of the king and queen and princess imbetween the prince and Bishop.

Still looking at 'un-pas-on' for the rear pawns. Which can as said before move three, two or one on first move.
