Gothic Chess

Gothic Chess is a recent member of a long line of similar variants, including Carrera's Chess (1617), Bird's Chess (1874), and Capablanca's Chess (1920s). It is played with the same equipment and by the same rules as Capablanca's Chess, differing only in the initial arrangement of pieces. In 2002, Gothic Chess was given United States Patent #6481716. According to the US Patent and Trademark Office, which has its patent number on a list of expired patents, the patent has expired.
