This game was invented by John, third Duke of Rutland from Englandin The game was most propagated by Sir Abraham Janssen, and it enjoyed some popularity in the years after its invention till his death in Sir Abraham Janssen taught the game to Philidor by far the strongest chess player of that timewho played this game, offering soon other good chess players a knights odd and still beating them. Rules The game is played on a checkered board with 10 rows and 14 columns. The left corners at each players side are dark colored.
In addition to the normal pieces of a chess game, a player has two crowned rooks, a concubine, one additional knight, two additional bishops and six additional pawns.
The opening setup is as follows: White : King g1; Queen h1; Crowned rook b1, m1; Concubine f1; Rook a1, n1; Knight c1, k1, l1; Bishop d1, e1, i1, j1; Pawn a2, b2, c2, d2, e2, f2, g2, h2, i2, j2, k2, l2, m2, n2. Black : King g10; Queen h10; Crowned rook b10, m10; Concubine f10; Rook a10, n10; Knight c10, k10, l10; Bishop d10, e10, i10, j10; Pawn a9, b9, c9, d9, e9, f9, g9, h9, i9, j9, k9, l9, m9, n9.
King, Queen, Rook, Knight, and Bishop move as in orthodox chess. The castling rule is unknown. Gollon advises readers to invent one themselves; play e.
The crowned rook can move as a rook, or can go one square diagonally. Pawns may make an initial double step, but also an initial triple step, i. On squares passed over, the pawn can be taken en passant. When reaching the last row, the pawn promotes to a queen, concubine, rook, crowned rook, bishop or knight to the owning players choice. A player wins by mating the king. A player that stalemates his opponent loses the game as was usual in normal chess during that time in England - a punishment for the carelessness of putting ones opponent in stalemate!

Piece: Chancellor Piece: Dragon King. The Duke of Rutland's Chess. Large variant from 18th century England. The following rule is described: 'On squares passed over, the pawn can be taken en passant.
In case of an inital triple step, for example b2-b5, does it mean black pawns a5, c5 could move to b4 taking away b5 OR black pawns a4, c4 move to b3 taking away b5? It could also mean a5,c5,a4,c4 all must move to b4, though I don't think so. Thanks in advance for a clarification. To me, a newcomer, feel's very nice to see a recognition of my thoughts. After all, all new comers believe that: 'everything was said before'. And it helps me to think a lot more; and helps in a creative process.
I can get it right in the great picture, lots of thoughts. But in the microscope And, coming from a guy with a good name in the site, it menas a lot to me. Well done. But then, why not also add a Dragon Horse? If the Duke did witness Shogi,and it is purley conjecture, then he still likely would not think of those other pieces Marshall, Chancellors, Amazons etc. Of course, he might not have wanted to bother with extra piece styles Even 2 more Queens would have been an improvement. The mystery remains. Add King moves to a Queen is useless.
