malki for children, starting from the age of 6
The Malki game is played by children, starting from the age of 6. The rules are simplified, as follows,
- the sorcerer is considered a warlord and can capture pieces (as warlords do)
- the King is unable to enchant or capture pieces
All other rules remain unchanged.

VARIANTS AS SUGGESTED AND TESTED BY MALKI PLAYERS
THE 3-PLAYER BASIC MODE VARIANT (as played by Manu, Karel and Benny once in a while)
This variant is played with 3, while using the 4 colours. Each player having one colour to play with, every turn a different player (clockwise) is allowed to play with the 4th colour, using it to his/her own advantage (of course). Wicked!
THE SIMPLIFIED 2 PLAYER ADVANCED PLAY VARIANT (as played by two unknown players during the Ghent Feasts Festival, 2019 Edition)
Playing the advanced play for 2 players, each playing with two adjacent colours, but moving only one piece (out of the two colours) in a turn.
malki for 2, 3 or 4 players
If played with a time clock (e.g. 30 sec) the game duration is limited to max. 40 minutes. If not, a Malki game can last as long as a chess game. The Malki game is best served at room temperature... playing with 4 colours !
Basic game for 2 or 4 players
The basic game is played with 2 or 4 colours, each player having one colour to play with.
Advanced play for 2, 3 or 4 players
In this advanced game two colours are opposed to the two other colours, be it adjacent colours or opposite colours (set up).
If played with 2, each will have to play with two colours.
If played with 3, one player disposes of two colours, playing against the two other players, who play as allies.
In the advanced play for 4 players, two players ally against the two other players.
It suffices that one King of the alliance reaches the center of the board to win the game. All other playing rules remain unchanged.
