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

Thanks Reinhard, but your ignorance is showing.  The original proposal was for Chess960 to be reinterpreted from FRC with these more logical rules, hence this document resides here.

After long debate with various and equally venomous Chess960 supporters I simply created another variant using the better rules.  No, I'm not a Grand Master so my variant will never have the fame of Fischer Random Chess, but I am sure that my variants are better than anything he could create.

Chess480 can be enjoyed online at (a site I think you left because of your caustic reactionary statement?)  But you are right, why don't you continue this discussion somewhere else.
