Check out Grant Acedrex, our featured variant for April, 2024.

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.

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

Fred Galvin, 1967. Pieces cannot capture but can only push one another off the board.

Since there is no agreement as to who chooses the new piece for an enemy pawn pushed to promotion, I made them all queens.
