Extinction Chess is a great game of course, but the shorter games it usually provides made me think of combining it with Brotherhood Chess, a slower-than-normal game.

Anyway, here's the Game Courier preset I made for this.

Dynamo Chess. You pull and push pieces around and off the board. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I've only begun a game of this, but it seems to be a wonderful game. I've never seen a variant that plays so differently from orthodox chess with such elegant, intuitive rules. I have a second invitation open if anyone is interested.

Mortal Chessgi. A Chessgi game in which captures reduce material. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I'm only on my second game of this, but it is already my favorite Chessgi-type game; elegant, fun, and very playable.

Contrast Chess. Pieces lose or gain strength depending on the colour of the square they stand on. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I had a similar idea recently, but this looks pretty interesting. Has anyone played this? I'm surprised there's no ZRF.
