The Chess Variant Pages



Alfaerie Variant Chess Graphics

Expansion Set One

The graphics shown below constitute an 'expansion set' of chess variant pieces which I have somewhat pretentiously named the Alfaerie collection.

This collection is admitedly geared toward those comfortable with western style chess pieces. I will be attempting to add more pieces as time permits.

You may download and use the Alfaerie graphics if you wish. The .zip file contains bitmaps for using the pieces with Zillions of Games, and also GIF files with transparent backgrounds. Please remember to check the 'use folder names' checkbox when you extract the files, and extract them to your zillions folder (if you have one). download alfaerie2.zip
