Since Greg hasn't responded to my earlier question, I went ahead with adding a ChessV tag to games playable on ChessV.

Here are the games on ChessV I did not find a page for here:

  • Duplex Chess by Greg Strong
  • Gilded Grand Shatranj by Joe Joyce (This is briefly mentioned on the Grand Shatranj page, but the description is too brief, and the Game Courier preset it links to has no landing page, does not describe the rules, and is not programmed to enforce the rules.)
  • New Zealand Chess by Unknown
  • Nightrider Chess by V. R. Parton (maybe it's in one of his documents, but it doesn't have its own page.)
  • Odyssey by Greg Strong
  • Opti Chess by Derek Nalls
  • Relative Royalty Chess by various
  • Unicorn Grand Chess by David Paulowich and Greg Strong
  • Warochess by Eric Warolus
  • Wild Castle by Unknown

With this complete, I have edited the header to use the ChessV tag to tell whether a game is supported in ChessV, and I have removed the Chessv column from the Item table.
