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.

External Link: Mathewson's Hexagonal Chess

Same board as Glinski's Hexagonal Chess, but with a different initial array.

From the site:

Moves are as per Glinski Hexagonal chess with the following difference:

Pawns are not allowed an initial double move, and therefore there is no En passant rule.

Pawn promotion can only happen on back hexagons previously occupied by opposing forces.
