The Chess Variant Pages

Photo's of Infinite Chess

Infinite Chess is a chess variant, played on a board in the form of the number 8, or the infinity symbol from mathematics.

The special shape of the board makes some interesting and unexpected manouvres possible. I ordered a board recently, and played some nice games with my son Wim (7 years). Below, you see a few photo's I made of the board with the camera of my SGI workstation. (The quality of these photo's is unfortunately not very good, sorry for that.)
