Same as King's Corner Chess, but 3 extra Pawns are placed in front of the King. These can become a good defense or a prison, depending on how you use them.

How to use the 3 extra pawns is a key decision. You can 'blitz' your opponent's weak side with them and try to promote your pawns. But doing this weakens the wall around your King. Or, you can clear out your pawns on the weak side so that you have a clearer shot at the opponent's King, and leave the strong pawn wall around your King.

Timing is crucial. If you 'blitz' your opponent with your extra pawns, there is no turning back. You have to promote a pawn before your opponent launches a successful counterattack. This game can move very quickly, even with the extra pieces.
