I rewrote significant parts of this page and reorganized it heavily.  It was previously organized as if the contest was still ongoing with various results and updates interspersed. It is now presented as a finished event with the winners highlighted.  The original page is still available here for historical interest in case anyone wants to see the contest in its original presentation.

I plan to make small edits to the pages of some of the game submissions to mention the contest if they currently don't and possibly make other small improvements on some of the more generic pages. I won't mess with the pages of users that I know are currently active and maintaining their own content.

EDIT: Created a 10-contest logo, seen at the top of the page. I'll add this to relevant pages.

I would like to provide a new variant 'Taboo Chess' (if that name is not
already used), which is (hardly to believe) as well a 10x8 and also a 64
squares chess variant. But I am still searching for a matching and still
running contest, where it could be entered.

Regards, Reinhard.

Oh, and please vote for the finals! And thanks to all who voted in the first round.

Hans Bodlaender wrote on 2005-10-25 UTC
Apologies for the very long delay. I was too busy with other things, and the contest was too long delayed. Clearly, the voting time for the second round has to be extended (otherwise it would be over before starting). To speed things up: each voter (finalists cannot vote) can send an email to me listing the games from good to less good.

Congratulations to all who made the finals, and again apologies.

Is it just me or is this contest in a coma?

Jared McComb wrote on 2005-10-03 UTC
Apparently nothing.

What´s new?

Jared McComb wrote on 2005-09-26 UTC
Is anything going on? Like, at all?

Jared McComb wrote on 2005-09-16 UTC
What's going on, anyway? There's been no announcement of a second round of voting.

Jared McComb wrote on 2005-09-07 UTC
The links to Taratibu and veSQuj seem to be missing.

Furthermore, the link to Shatranj Kamil 64 should point to
instead of where it does now.

I do not plan to cast my votes until August.

31 games, and only 7 voters to the present. I think people is still confused with voting dates.

I have recently corrected the errors on my entries in this, correcting the relationship between Eurasian and Grander Chess in one and making the 3d array diagram clearer in the other. When's the 45-square contest opening? I've already thought of a couple of entries for it.

Hans Bodlaender wrote on 2005-06-08 UTC
We'll move the voting dates accordingly. By the way, people are encouraged to vote, but in this contest, voting is not required to be elegible for winning. (See rules.)

Fergus Duniho wrote on 2005-06-08 UTC
I will get on this soon. In the meantime, anyone who has entered the contest but does not yet have a userid and password should register with this website. You will need your userid and password to vote in the polls, which will be required for remaining eligible to win. And I will need a complete list of userids to properly set up banning of inventors from voting in the polls with their own games.

I don't mean to speak for Hans, but I believe that the delay in the contest is due to the fact that the editors need help with the creation of the polling system for the game evaluations. Can someone help with this?

Roberto Lavieri wrote on 2005-06-07 UTC

Can we vote before the end line, or it is going to be re-defined?. I hope
date changes.

The link to Shatranj Kamil (64) is fixed. Links to Glenn Overby's games have been added.

David Paulowich wrote on 2005-05-29 UTC
Help! The link on this page to my variant Shatranj Kamil (64) does not work - it needs to end in '64.html'. The link from the TenCubed Chess page (and other entries, I assume) works fine.

Hans Bodlaender wrote on 2005-05-28 UTC
The two games by Glenn are added to those submitted to the contest; I
decided to accept the games for the contest. They'll be added to the list
above in the near future. 

Apologies for the delay in the voting page; we hope to have it up soon.

Thanks for following up, Tony. I hope the e-mail issues get fixed soon.

Tony Quintanilla wrote on 2005-05-22 UTC
Glenn, glad to hear from you! I just checked our e-mail and do not see your game submittals. There may be a temporary problem with the CVP e-mail account. I'll follow-up on this.

I had two submissions prior to the deadline, unless the emails were
delayed in delivery.  A copy of the original submission has been sent to
the contest address.

There is a really good batch of entries for this contest!

Hans Bodlaender wrote on 2005-05-16 UTC
We now have all games on the website, except one non-competing game. If yours is not here, contact us please a.s.a.p.! The voting page is planned to be up soon. Many thanks to all contributors! <p> Hans Bodlaender

Incredible set of games in the contest. You can see almost all here. Historical elements in some games, futuristic elements in others, interesting 'normal' variations, extreme little boards, extreme large boards, interesting set of rules, points elements, elements of randomness, unconventional boards, etc, etc. Superb!!!.
