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.

Photo's of a Gala Set

In a game book, descriptions were given how to build a set for the game of Gala. My mother, Marijke Bodlaender-Groote, made an actually even nicer set as a birthday present for my father. Three photo's of this nice set can be seen below: click on the photo's to get a larger image.


Written and photo's by Hans Bodlaender. Photo's made with Kodak DC-20 camera donated by David Howe.
