Watched the whole video. Never heard of it. Looks like it would be a blast to play though!
I made an account on lichess.org just to try out their multiple different variants (there are videos of Jerry playing these also fyi):
- An army of (36!) pawns vs. a standard chess army... who is better theoretically?
YouTube : Horde chess
- As the name suggests, the first player to give 3 checks in a game wins (any legal check, does not have to be consecutive)
YouTube : Three-check
You can play in time controls such as these, but there are even quicker ones such as 2 minutes with no increment.
I'm really having some fun playing these
... best part is, lichess is free!
EDIT: Oh, and for King-of-the-hill, you don't

I had wrongly assumed this, your points per win only double once you are on a streak (at least 3 wins in a row)
Biggest streak I've had so far is 5
