This guide attempts to briefly describe or define the various terms, phrases and names in common use relating to the subject of chess variants. Chess variants are those games which are related in some way to chess. The term 'chess' as used here, refers to a board game utilizing several different piece types (i.e. pieces which move on the board in different ways), typically with a single royal piece which must be captured or cornered as a winning condition.

This guide attempts to document common usage and is not an attempt to create a standard. While there may be a desire for standards within the chess variant community, the need does not seem great enough to necessitate the creation of a standard terminology. Note that the subject of fairy chess problems is not covered, although many terms used in chess variants originate from this area of activity.

Also note that this guide does not attempt to include all notable chess variant games. This has already been attempted (see the Classified Encyclopedia of Chess Variants and WGR: Chess Variations issue).

The guide is broken down into 11 sections, described below.

  1. Game Section: These are the names of popular, well-established, or long-lived chess variant games. Note that there exist multiple resources that document most chess variants, the Encyclopedia of Chess Variants and the Classified Encyclopedia of Chess Variants being the most comprehensive. This resource in no way attempts to reach the level of comprehensiveness and completeness that these two books achieve.
  2. Game Type Section: These are terms used to describe types of chess variant games.
  3. Game Term Section: These are terms used to describe the setup, playing or description of a chess variant game.
  4. Board Term Section: These are terms used to describe features of the various boards used for chess variants.
  5. Piece Section: These are the names of popular, well-established, or long-lived pieces used in chess variant games. These include some pieces invented for fairy chess problems.
  6. Piece Term Section: These are terms used to describe types of pieces.
  7. Piece Movement Section: These are terms used to describe or refer to the way pieces move or capture.
  8. Person Section: Notable people who have published material relating to chess variants.
  9. Organization Section: Notable organizations that are related to chess and chess variants.
  10. Publication Section: Published books and magazines relating to chess variants.
  11. Software Section: Computer programs relating to chess variants.

There is also a cross-reference index, an exhibit of terms page, a printable version of this guide (cv-guide.pdf), and a Table of Chess Variants.
