In this variant, things are much more crazy. The new pieces are inspired from the next Musketeer Chess Series2 and Series3.
The 10 pieces of Series1 are present, with additional choice: Lion, Lioness, Tiger, Giraffe, Kangarou, Bear, Gorilla, Dog, Wolf, Camel, Zebra, Mammoth, Rhinoceros, T-Rex, Hyppopotamus, Aquila, Warrior, Glider, Wizard, Emperor, Griffin, Dragon (A new Figural piece that moves differently from version1 which moves like the Amazone = Queen + Knight), A new Figural Spider, Reduced Emperor, Citadel, Crowned Rook, Crowned Bishop, Crowned Knight, Buzzard, Shepherd, Tzar...

All the the details for the moves and captures are available in the rules section

Enjoy !

Why the ridiculously low version of the Hawk (in the rules section)? This must be a typo. I guess most of the pieces listed with value 5 were copy-pasted and not updated to any real value. (E.g. Crowned Rook is definitely way stronger than the Crowned Bishop). But 2.3 for a leaper with 16 moves...!?

Hi
The values of the pieces are not updated; the values listed are just some default values used in the programming but not at all accurate.
