Objective

Students will decide which side has the advantage - a standard chess set or 32 pawns.

This is an example of asymmetrical chess in which the two players have unequal pieces. This leads beautifully into writing an essay about which side has the real advantage.

Edward Plunkett, 18th Baron of Dunsany created this variant back in 1942. It was originally called Dunsany's Chess.
