Black win

Fianchetto chess plays like regular chess except that the initial positions of the rooks and bishops are reversed.



Game rules

The game is played from the following initial position:


All chess rules are in place with one exception: there is no castling.

The game is similar to standard chess, although lack of castling, and bishops placed on the long diagonals change it a little bit.

More hints welcome
