In Partnership with Musketeer ChessThe Camaratta Chess Variant Kit, which features Archbishop and Chancellors Pieces, is an exciting, new way to play Chess! Use these pieces with your favorite set of chess pieces and play Camaratta Chess! Each kit comes with a total of 4 plastic chess pieces - Black Archbishop, Black Chancellor, Natural Archbishop, and Natural Chancellor.
Camaratta-Chess is a modification of Sharper Chess which is the invention of GM Yasser Seirawan and the late Bruce Harper. Sharper Chess improves on an idea proposed by former World Champion Jose Capablanca, which introduced two new chess pieces to each army but which suffers from the need for an 8 x 10 chessboard.
Rules for Musketeer Chess can be downloaded at www.musketeerchess.com. The new chess pieces are designed to be Staunton-compatible, hence can easily be used as replacements or substitutes to customize classic Staunton pattern chess sets or create your own chess variant.
