Check out Chess with Different Armies, our featured variant for July, 2024.

Stuck in the Middle with You

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

Orange and purple armies travel cylindrically to boards in either directions.

Black controls orange army. White controls purple army.

Armies starting on boards A and C are Alician and travel left to right and back again from their own vantage point.

All pawns travel Alician style from left to right for black and from right to left for white.

With the exception of pawns, pieces starting in the middle board stay in the middle.

White starts the game by moving one piece from the first and third boards.

After that, players make three moves per turn, one from each board. Less if they have no pieces on one of the boards.

Here is the version with Nutty Knights in the Middle:
