<P>This is an <i>excellent</i> site. Not only can you play different variants but there is a good sense of community and members are fairly active and able to make a lot of creative input. The site admin encourages this and has made a lot of additions as a result. </P <P> one example is the <b>dark variants</b> which i'd never heard of but were suggested and explained in one forum. it was suggested as a result of kriegspiel being too complicated for most and also as a new idea (both exist on the site). then it follows they added both suicide and crazyhouse dark chess, so i've never seen these elsewhere. </P> <p> the latest feature is mini- tournaments so any member can make his own tournament with friends. this is great because some of the larger tournaments take time to coordinate and run.</P
