 By Adam  Norberg. AAUUGHH! Chess. After every move, there's a 1 in 18 chance of the rules switching to another in a list of variants. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This is too funny. Sounds like a recipe for entertaining chaos. :)

Having given some thought to this in connection with some future variants of my own using dice, I have thought of a possibly even more elegant solution: rolling the dice at the START of each move determines what the rules become at the END of it. This way players can move under the 'old' rules to avoid being in check under the 'new' ones, though not necessarily under the 'old'! The only question that then arises is differentiating checkmate from stalemate when no such move is available.

The term used on the Main Menu is 'Chess variants with usual equipment', directly beneath 'Other boards with an unusual shape'. Aesthetically a second G in the name would be nice, to match the other double letters. Just one question: what happens if the new rules put the player who just played in check?
