The Chess Variant Pages

Check out Cylindrical Chess, our featured variant for March, 2023.


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

This is a Christian Freeling game. It is similar to Chessgi. However, captured pawns are removed from the game and can never be dropped back in. There are no queens.

Logs for Dragonfly.

When using the preset: When you capture a bishop, knight, or rook, remove it from the board - then add the piece [but in your color] to the XYZ holding zone (preferably at Y and Z to keep them away from the edge of the board). You can drop those pieces back into the game. See rules.
