|The early grayscaled version has different rules compared to the later ones.|
|There are 2 slightly different
copies of the grayscaled version:
One has dark red brown color for one army; thats different to the standard colors; the second one includes the standard colors of pieces.
|The following differnces are
between this early version rule and the later ones:
The moves page shows that to capture or slay is the victor's option for most pieces.
The capture/slay moves are different numbers of squares than a regular motion move.
The truce/prisoner exchange could add a lot of interest. In the newer rule, a truce is just a way to call a stalemate.
There is a rule that pieces must be moved from left to right (according to their position before you start moving each turn). The left to right rule is just a suggestion in the newer rules as a way to remember which pieces you moved.
The Rights of Succession include special rules such as royalty piece swaps after a royalty slaying. You can capture royalty instead of slaying them, but I suppose the Succession rule would be used for captures also.
