CHESSapeak Challenge is a four player chess variant on a cross-shaped board: at each side of an 8 by 8 board, three rows of squares are added. Similar chess variants exist for over two centuries. CHESSapeak Challenge has a new twist, resolving some problems of the older variants by having pawns change directions at specific squares. It received very positive reviews, amongst others from Pritchard in Variant Chess.
