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: The Retrograde Analysis Corner

Retrograde chess problems are chess problems where part of the solution comes from reasoning about the past moves that have been played in the game. The Retrograde Analysis Corner is a very extensive website with lots of information on this kind of chess problems. (Many retrograde problems also feature chess variant rules.)

Thanks to Joost de Heer for finding this site after we lost track of it.


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.
WWW page made by Hans Bodlaender. Thanks to Hans Havermann for informing about the link to a still existing webpage. Thanks to Otto Janko for another update informing us that the website moved.
