If I would have to choose the chess variant of the 20th century, I probably would choose Progressive Chess. Many other candidates would already be older, or have received a smaller group of players. A simple idea changes chess to a game that usually lasts just a few turns. The game is very suitable for postal play. Progressive chess is played in a number of somewhat different fashions, and the idea is also used in combination with other chess variants. Progressive chess is widely played, e.g., in AISE, and NOST. Opening theory has been developed very far, which can give players that have no access to this theory a serious disadvantage.
