Go. Preset for Go and Go-Chess variants.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Hi, Roberto.

Not a chess variant, no, but the piece drop is not unknown to chess variants (as Shogi).

There are a few chess variants that use a Go board and integrate concepts from Go. Diffusion Chess is one. As we make other chess-go hybrids available for play on Game Courier, such as Gess, I shall call attention to them here.

Your suggestion that we add other games is a good one because it will provide further inspiration for chess variant designers to hybridize.
