You are on the backup site for Chessvariants.com. Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Why does 'Mini-Rules' appear in the title of this page? The minirules files are unindexed PHP scripts that briefly describe the rules of a game for display in Game Courier, they all go in /play/pbm/minirules/, and they cannot be created by filling out forms for user-submitted pages. Any true minirules file should be coded by hand, strictly named after the lowercase, underscored, low ascii version of the game's name, uploaded by FTP to /play/pbm/minirules/, and give no more than the rules of the game and notes on notation in Game Courier, not an introduction or a diagram of the setup.
