    There's a chess variant that uses cards called Onitama. I built a computer program to play it.

    Each player gets 2 cards and there's a card in the middle.

    The cards tell you how you might move. You make a move with a card and swap cards with the middle. Then the other player takes a turn.

    The goal is to capture your opponent's king or get your king in their king's starting position. Also, if you can't move you still have to switch a card.

    I got it so you can play human vs human, human vs computer, or computer vs computer. A computer player can have a search depth of 0 to 6.

    It's a copyright game, so I probably should think before I distribute it to everyone.

    I told the company I was going to make it twice and they ignored me both times though.

    But you can buy the actual game if you want to play someone.

    The artwork is very good!

    When I played chess, we had fun with variants of pieces. One was a coordinator - two pieces cooperated to take an opponents piece. A "long leaper" was like a super knight. And so forth.

    I told the company that I made it and plan on sharing with a few people, so now hopefully I won't be a thief.
