Near the bottom of this page is a Human VS PC game of Jetan.

It includes source code (Turbo PASCAL) and documentation.

If you're going "WTH is Jetan?" Look at the Chess Variants site.

Here is a gameboard to download or play it here online.

This board runs in a web browser and is for two human players. The setup lets you choose from amongst several movement rules for the pieces, even allowing different rules for the same piece for each player. Spot your opponent a "Free" Princess and you try to capture her to win, for just one of the many possibilities.

Jetan is a neat game, but for some reason it hasn't received anywhere near the attention chess has for being put into computer versions.

Perhaps because it was invented by a writer for a specific piece of fiction, rather than being a very old, pre-existing game played by those of us here on earth? :P
