I made a set of pieces for two player version. Out of wood amnd painted them like they are old. Use stones as pawns

Played today, it was great. Neat how the pieces have limited movement (cept rook although some suggest it was likely limited to two squares in the beginning)

I know they say Shantranj evolved from this, but Chatruranga is better. I like the king getting one knight move pre check.

And the promotion rule that pawn promotes to what was on square intially (so can't promote on king square), and to promote must have lost a piece of that type.

Plays well. Give it a try
