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.



The Chess Variant Pages



The Bishop

The Bishop moves any number of squares diagonally, as long as its path is unblocked. It can also move to an adjacent orthogonal square, as long as it does not capture an enemy piece when doing so, and as long as the Bishop is adjacent to a friendly piece.

Next: The Rook
