    What's the name of this chess variant ? It is played on 36 squares and each side has only 1 Knight and 1 Bishop. I am usually not attracted by chess variants (I think that the original is that popular with reason) but this simple setup looks just hillarious.

    im not sure, but theres been tests on size, and the one that size with 2 knights and no bishops the knights are better than rooks. on super big boards bishops are way better than knights..

    im not sure the name though sorry
