  1. I always played this to see the different animations, but eventually learned how to play chess because of it. My favorite was when the queen would clap and blow I think the king maybe up. That one and when the pawn would trip the king and he'd be in his undergarments.

  2. I saw a few people requesting other more modern variations of this game. Here are a few I found, hopefully this comment will get thumbed up to help others find this info later on. 🙂
