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



Link to: Strategy for Losing Chess

This site gives information on strategies for Losing Chess or Loser's Chess: the variant where the object is to loose your king or all other pieces. The rules used on this site are somewhat different from those of Giveaway chess: one wins when the king is mated.
In order to facilitate maintenance of links, separate pages will be made for outgoing links with a small description. Thus, when a link changes, I need to change only one link on one spot. Note that I have no connection to the linked sites.
