The Chess Variant Pages

DoGod Random

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

Pieces are the same as in FIDE Chess, only pawns and pieces will be distributed randomly on the first and second ranks, with king between rooks on the first rank, and bishops on opposite colors.

Pawns can advance up to the fourth rank on their initial move, but may be subject to en passant capture at any point along the way.

Pieces beginning on the second rank must move once before they can check or capture. Pawns can always capture.

Castling rules are the same as in Fischer Random.
