Alice Chess Preset for Game Courier

Alice Chess

Invented by Vernon Parton, Alice Chess is based on Lewis Carroll's second Alice book, Through the Looking Glass. In that book, Alice steps through a mirror and finds herself in a strange looking-glass land populated by Chess pieces. In this game, pieces move back and forth between two boards. Each move on one board sends a piece to the corresponding space on the other board, which must be empty for the move to be legal. This preset enforces the rules and automatically moves pieces between boards.

As of March 25, 2013, it should enforce all the rules, including spotting checkmate and stalemate.

As of May 06, 2016, it should display legal moves.
