Check out Chess with Different Armies, our featured variant for July, 2024.


This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

Jim Aikin Amoeba

This is the preset for Jim Aikin's Amoeba. You may move squares naturally as you move pieces, i.e. e3-e4 moves the square e3 to the void space e4.

As I understand from the rules page, no square might be out of the 7x7 matrix.

This is a game played in the 38 square challenge tournament between Joao Neto as White and Jim Aikin as Black. It was played with the rule that it is legal to move any square in the board (including those with pieces on it.) The outcome of the game was a win for White.
