There are several chess variants that differ from orthodox chess mostly by a smaller board and less pieces, but otherwise follow about all of the rules of chess. Los Alamos chess was not the first in this category, but it takes its own special place in the history of chess: it was the first game in the chess-family that was played by a computer - even earlier than the royal game itself. <b>Recognized Variant of the Month for June 2002.</b>
The board used for this game has 6 row(s), 6 column(s), 36 cells/squares.
This game is a 2 player game.
