Check out Chess with Different Armies, our featured variant for July, 2024.


This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

This is the Game Courier Preset for Bigorra, a veeeeeery large CV, 80 pieces of 34 types on 256 squares board.

A variant incorporating all the pieces used in other Cazaux's large CV. There are all pieces from Terachess (II), completed by the pieces from Fantastic XIII. Bigorra is then an alternative to Terachess II, somehow more complex because it has more pieces from more different types.

(Big thanks to H.G.Muller for his help in coding this GC)
