Ironlance -- you have done a very nice job with the board, which is useful for different board sizes and shapes.

The Random Links are a great feature. It often leads to an interesting game that I had missed before.

Excellent site with one exception! I miss the ability to search for variants using parts of terms. Ex: I'm looking for the 'Crazyhouse' variant but I'm only knowing that the variant contains the term 'house'. Actually I can not search that way. It would be nice to have a search function included which can search for variant names or parts of these or to search contents of this site.

I posted my new variant at: CHEZZLE - Board Game 'Chess played with puzzle pieces' This is a great website!

I was googling about for my name and ran into, which seems to be a partial mirror of the alphabetic index in Russian. Nothing major, but an interesting curiousity.

Great web site! You might be interest to know that today, March 4, 2004, Emma Young, writer for the Guardian, offers an interesting article about research in military theory using *chess variants*:,13026,1161128,00.html Here's some quotes: 'But neither group is studying standard games. By modifying key variables, such as the number of moves allowed each turn, or whether one player can see all of the other's pieces, they are investigating the relative importance of a host of factors that translate to the battlefield, such as numerical superiority, a quick advance and the use of stealth.' *** 'These games, and other variations on regular play, led the team to a clear conclusion: being stronger and having more 'battlespace information' than your opponent are both less valuable when there is little information available overall to both sides - but the advantage of a fast pace remains.'

Just for Your information: Russian weekly magazin 'Computerra' published write-up about this site ( , in Russian). They describe this site as excellent, and now I see, that this is true :-)

Dear Bewitcheds, I appologize for confusing the rules of Shatranj. The following game was corrected. May the confusion subside. Truely Yours, John Kenichi Seino from Japan.

I am looking for some information. I recently came across a game board in an antique shop ( a few of these boards were there and the propriator said most people buy them to hang on the wall for decor)that resembled a chess board except the squares numbered 10 by 10 instead of 8 by 8. On all the boards there was space included on each end with elongated stars painted. Anyone have a clue on these boards? <p>Keith

John Ayer wrote on 2004-08-22 UTC
Not the faintest, Keith. Where, exactly, are the stars located, please?

This page is listed as 8x8 board with 64 squares. But this is just the index page, it isn't the rules of an actual game. It should be listed as 0x0 board with 0 squares.

Corrected the indexing

Hey, I was wondering, I'm having a hard time finding the place where I can register my account and sign in, so could you help me? I've been looking around and I can't seem to see the link. I may have overlooked something.

Nothing can be compared to the standard chess. Here you can find a couple of compuntoes chess links (in Spanish):

- El compuntoes - Chess news.
