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

Click the button to access the preset which uses an Hexagonal-Lattice board (from an idea by Joe Joyce) as an equivalent substitute for the original trigonal board.

The pieces and their movement on this board are shown below, the reachable cells being marked with a red star (or a blue star in the case of a pawn's capturing move).


king move


queen move


tower move


spire move

Knight Errant

knight errant move

Knight Paladin

knight paladin move
