I was looking for some chess variants which give less experienced players better chances and are a lot of fun. I think both conditions apply to Insane, that's why I added it to my site, where it can soon be played live (along with other chessvariants/games) against other players; of course I mentioned by whom and when it was invented. It would be nice to play a game with its inventor. For more information: [email protected]

This game certainly fits it's description.  Not for the serious player,
but it was a lot of fun to play the Java applet.

It would also be good if the possible pieces included BN and NR, so
knight-moves get a fairer go.  Also, different pieces could have
different
chances.

eg. 3/12 =1/4 Pawn, 2/12 = 1/6 Bishop, 2/12 Knight, 2/12 Rook, 1/12 Q,
1/12 BN, 1/12 NR
