Sam Trenholme had these as part of website by 1996, likely 1995 too, during which time Trenholme's had more material on Chess Variants than the then-new Chess Variant Page. Omitted are lengthy threads within of individuals' comments on such as the included Losing, Randomized, Bughouse, Pre-Chess; this particular item, for CVPage, is pared to mostly Rules of only some of the CVs Trenholme had, without any longer so extensive outside feedback and opinionating.
