I am please to announce another addition to the ever-growing Super Duper Games family. This is another Icehouse game called Martian Chess. It is a chess-like strategy game in which location, rather than piece color, determines which pieces you may move. Like Chess, each type of piece has its own way of moving, and you capture by moving onto an opponent's square; but unlike Chess, you can only move pieces sitting in your own quadrant, and only attack those in other quadrants ­ which may include your own former pieces. The game ends when someone runs out of pieces, and the winner is the player who captured the most points. I have also added Jacob Davenport's variant suggestion and called it 'Of Knights and Kings.' In it, Pawns move like chess Kings and Drones move like chess Knights. As always, feedback and bug reports are warmly welcomed. Oh, and an AI opponent is also available for 2-player play only. Enjoy!

Good Gaming!
