The Chess Variant Pages

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

Since Java is no longer supported in most browsers, our Java applets probably will not run unless you install an extension that will run them. We recommend installing the CheerpJ Applet Runner extension on Edge, Chrome, or another Chromium browser. If your browser still does support Java, and you're not using this extension, make sure this site is listed in your Java exceptions list. You should find this in the Security tab of your Java control panel.

Chess in the Third Dimension

If you had a Java-capable browser, you could play Chess in the Third Dimension here.
Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once

Proprietary game from Skor-Mor. Checks and captures only work on the same board. Each unit follows its legal first move by going to an unoccupied square on the middle board. A unit which has already moved may go up or down instead of a standard move.

Nice but confusing game. Again, the AI was stupid, I wiped out all his pieces with only a king alone xD
