Has Replacement (or Putback) Chess ever been nominated as a Recognized variant on chessvariants.com? I'd think it would be (historically, anyway) popular enough to be a Recognized variant, having at least at one time often been played on both sides of the US-CAN border. The concept of replacement (as it is performed in this game) is also something of a simple yet unique signature for this game, afaik. Bombalot might possibly be another candidate for being a Recognized variant, especially if it's been played over-the-board in the US or other countries besides CAN. That's if any more Recognized variants are going to be added onto chessvariants.com anytime in future.
