The Fair First Move Rule in Chess. Every turn you flip a coin to see who goes first.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I've played it and I agree with Ralph--the best way to introduce randomness
into Chess.

A checkmate rule I find satisfactory:
If a player is mated by a single move, the game is over.
If a player is mated by two consecutive moves, if taking two consecutive
moves would relieve the mate, the mated player wins the next toss
automatically and can play two moves.

For stalemate the rule is the same.
