The Chess Variant Pages



Alpha Variant Font

The following graphics are based on a font currently in development. The font is called Alpha Variant and is being designed by Tom Buhrman. The pieces designed so far are:
  • Equus Rex (King+Knight)
  • Amazon (Queen+Knight)
  • Chancellor (Rook+Knight)
  • Cardinal (Bishop+Knight)
  • Camel
  • Elephant
  • Wazir
  • Ferz

And the Cannon and Knightrider pieces are currently in development.
