You are on the backup site for 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.

The Chess Variant Pages

External Link

This is a link to an external site for: Scatha


<p>Glaurung and Scatha are two simple open-source chess playing engines. The two programs are almost identical, except for the fact that Glaurung plays normal chess, while Scatha plays Wladyslaw Glinski's hexagonal chess. <p>Scatha includes its own GUI for Mac OS X (click on the picture above for a full-size screenshot). At the moment, it will unfortunately only work in Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.3.9. The source code for the GUI is currently not public, but it probably will be some time in the future.

This 'link page' is meant to provide a link to another website. Note that we have no connection to, nor bear responsibility for the linked sites.
