Crazy 38's. On strange board with 38 squares. (Cells: 38) (Recognized!)

By Ben Good.


In 1997/1998, the first chess variant design contest was held on the Chess Variant Pages website: design a chess variant on a board with 38 squares. Winner of this contest was Ben Good with his game Crazy 38s. The game also received the largest number of votes in the categories: Most original game and Best Game design.
