Chess with dice as pieces

Duell chess is the chess variant played with dice as the piece. Here the number over the dice represents the kingdom. The two different colors separate the army. It uses a board of size 8*9. The aim is to capture the ‘key piece’ which is equivalent to king.

The pieces are arranged in 8 rows of 9 squares in the form of 5 1 2 6 1 6 2 1 5. The center piece 1 denotes the ‘key piece’. The pieces with the face denoting 3 are arranged as soldiers. The pieces are moved in the direction along with turning the face. Hence the number over the face changes in every move. The move is usually with 90 degree. The aim is to capture key piece or occupy key square.
