Topic: Chess Variants
I'm ready to start work on the HTML coding for my large variant but I'm being stymied by the lack of a decent name. What do I call this variant? "Jeff's Obvious Ripoff of Gothic Omega Tamerlane 100" seems a tad long. Kings & Things would be a great name, if Thom Wham hadn't already used it. Drat him! I suppose there are other naming schemes besides acknowledging the three games I am, ahem, paying homage to. I could somehow mention the importance of the Court pieces (Queen, Minister, Archbishop, and Prince) with something like King's Court 100 or Court Chess 100. A quick search reveals that King's Court is in use but Court Chess is not. Of course, Court Chess 100 is a rather bland name. Maybe I should call it Better Late Than Never 100, to signify that I envisioned the earliest version of this variant as a possible entry into the 100 Squares Contest. That makes this variant about four years late.
