The philosphy of KhanChess
When you take a look at history you will come across very interesting kings, khans, rulers, emperors, generals, prophets or presidents like a Richard Lionheart, Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Saladdin, Napoleon Bonaparte, George Washington, King Saul, King David or a Genghis Khan. Men who ruled and dominated the world (or their region) and were active on the battlefield.
Compare these men with the king of chess. Imagine the king being a person. With all respect the only conclusion can be that the king of chess is a coward in almost any chess variation. Most the time he doesn’t leave the first line. When in trouble he castles himself. Calls himself king but the real work is actually done by his lady, the queen. The queen has more value than a king! The only thing a king can do in classic chess variations is die! There are even chess players who give up when their queen is captured. With classic chess variations we mean the fixed classic variations where you play chess from a fixed start position. They are all symmetric.
When playing KhanChess variations the king is no longer a “sitting duck”. He doesn’t depend on his queen. Playing khan chess variations is where in he can be victorious. We of KhanChess® gave him his pride back. Have you ever played chess where a king was able to win the game? Probably not. Or at least died trying.
Khan chess variations are chess variations where you can win by directing your king through enemy lines to the last line. If you can put your king on the last line and you’re not checked when standing on the last line proclaim yourself Khan. You win the game. Consider yourself like a Julius Ceasar if your opponent can't stop you. It's what he said "I came, I saw, I conquered". Khan chess is the most masculine form of playing chess after chess boxing.
We have tried to create totally different chess variations without altering the characteristics of all the chess pieces. The only piece that got a different character is the pawn. The piece with a new game play is the king. We also didn't want to add new chesspieces. We really think we succeeded. Because now we are Khan chess addicts.
