The Zillions OTB Tag
Zillions-of-Games is a Windows program we have long been using to play a wide variety of Chess variants, because it allows users to write their own rules files that it can then run. But it also comes with the necessary files for some games, and these can be played without downloading any extra files. OTB is short for out-of-the-box, and this tag is for games you can play on Zillions-of-Games without downloading any files provided by users of the program.
