|Jun-23-07|| ||2021: Also there is Patrol Chess
|Jun-23-07|| ||2021: Here is some more:
Knight Relay Chess
|Jun-23-07|| ||2021: If you want all of them, here they are:
|Jun-23-07|| ||WarmasterKron: <2021> I've played both Knight Relay Chess and Three Checks Chess. The latter is surprisingly tricky.|
|Jul-18-07|| ||Sibahi: if you want most of them (which are much more than the wiki article), have a look at http://www.chessvariants.org|
|Aug-04-07|| ||Ed Trice: I like Gothic Chess personally :)
|Aug-20-07|| ||arunjangity: ok, i give up...what is it???
|Aug-20-07|| ||WannaBe: That's what happens after you've drank about a dozen glasses of those yellow liquid! =)|
|Jun-15-08|| ||Xeroxx: This opening should be applied more often by white because white wins 65.0 per cent of the games!|
|Sep-24-08|| ||just a kid: Maybe Kramnik or Leko should take up this opening more often.|
|Oct-11-08|| ||ThePawnOTron2: The best of all is obviously ThePawnOTron2 Chess, where captured pieces can be placed on the board by the player whose piece was captured?|
|Jan-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: what an opening!!|
|Jan-15-09|| ||GrahamClayton: Edward Winter mentions in "Kings, Commoners and Knaves" (Russell Enterprises, 1999) that there were several games in the 19th century where one player would remove their Queen, but would receive extra pawns as compensation. There are multiple games with one player receiving 8 extra pawns, plus 1 game where the player received 9 pawns - General Guingret v L Kieseritzky.|
White had extra pawns on c4, d4, e4, f4, g4, b3, c3, f3 and g3.
|Jan-15-09|| ||TheaN: Knight mate:
Same as orthodox with these changes:
1) On b1 and g1 there will be a White King and on b8 and g8 there will be a Black King as regular Kings without the King's characteristics. They cannot castle, may be attacked, the attack does not have to be negated and they may be captured as normal pieces.
2) On e1 there will be a White Knight and on e8 there will be a Black Knight as regular Knights with the characteristics of a King, although they move as Knights. They may castle where orthodox rules apply, an attack on them must be negated and they may not be captured.
3) Pawns cannot be promoted into Knights and may promote into Kings.
4) As in orthodox chess, an attacked Knight is in checkmate when the attack cannot be negated and the checkmated players loses, and if a player cannot move when he is not in check will result in stalemate with a draw.
This variant can be immensely complex as one, the King's value cannot be easily disputed, two, Knights are easily checkmated and three, in the beginning it might be completely counterintuitive to move with Kings and let the Knight stay put.
I enjoy this one from time to time.
|Jan-15-09|| ||kellmano: Reading this page has given me a hunger to play some chess variants. The only one I have really played at all is chess960|
|Jan-29-09|| ||patzer of patzers: Does anyone have/know where I could easily access opening theory on pawn and move (also possibly pawn and two) games? I recently played a game giving pawn and move, and responded to 1.e4 with 1...e5??? It was only by luck that my opponent didn't see the devastating 2.Qh5+...|
|Jan-29-09|| ||Phony Benoni: <patzer of patzers> Well, if you're not talking about <recent> therey:|
|Jan-29-09|| ||patzer of patzers: Thanks, <PhonyBenoni>, once again you provide another solution to my trivial chess needs! Unfortunately, I don't have much time to look at that document, but I will, perhaps, consult a little bit of it each day. I do already know that 1...c5 (as played by Philidor) is a blunder, dropping a second pawn, so I won't need to study that...|
|Feb-18-09|| ||WhiteRook48: think I'll play Knightmate or pawnstorm|
|Feb-19-09|| ||WhiteRook48: patrol chess is a bit risky for me, though|
|Feb-26-09|| ||WhiteRook48: I'd want to play Four-way-chess|
|Feb-28-09|| ||WhiteRook48: too bad only premium members can do the upcoming Fischer-random|
|Oct-28-09|| ||randomsac: There is only one variant game in this database that NN has won. It was one of the Fisherrandom games played on the internet.|
|Dec-26-12|| ||Bengambit: OK found it it's called Chess variants (000) thanks again ..........|
|Sep-30-13|| ||framsey: Does the following variant have a name?
Standard chess, except that in the event of a draw the win is awarded to the player with more material on the board (traditional point system: 1/3/5/9), plus 0.5 points to black.
