Castling in Chess 960. New castling rules for Fischer Random Chess. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Hi Reinhard,

This document lead to the creation of Chess480 which uses castling as described here.  I still think FRC/Chess960 would be better with the castling system as I've described, but the former has a lot of momentum and that means it's unlikely to change (as I stated in the final section).

C:  If you like to take up the challenge, find a chess player who hasn't seen Chess960 and see what they think the most logical castling system is.  Don't prompt them, just ask how they would do it.
