Maharajah and the Sepoys is a asymmetrical variant with a full black army against a single Maharajah
Maharajah and the Sepoys is an asymmetrical variant played on a standard board. Black plays near standard rules, and White playing just a Maharajah piece.
Black pieces setups as normal, with the single White Maharajah opposing them.
The Maharajah combines a King, Queen and Knight. The Maharajahi's movement is therefore like Queen and Knight, but because of its royal status, it is unable to move to an attacked square.
There is no black Pawn promotion - a black Pawn remains a pawn and is unable to advance further once it reaches the last rank.
Castling rules remains the same as Standard Chess.
Check and Checkmate rules remain the same as Standard Chess.
Stalemate conditions remain the same as Standard Chess.
Draw conditions remain the same as Standard Chess.
Black's must checkmate the Maharajah, and White's must checkmate the Black's king.
