Description
A Chess variant with a lot of intrigue. The King and Knight have been switched. The pieces retain all the normal rules, save that now you must capture your opponent's Knight, a much more elusive character. The game mechanics have been changed to reflect the new rules and the pieces have been swapped on the board.
