Sittuyin, or Burmese Chess, is clearly related to {{Makruk}}, as the pieces all have the same moves. However, the game starts with the pawns already in place (the four pawns on your left are on your third rank while those on your right are on your fourth rank). You and your opponent then take turns placing your other pieces. Also, Pawns promote on your opponent's side of the long diagonal; it takes a whole turn and can only be done if your General (=Medieval Queen) is slain.
