The Chess Variant Pages


Tetra is a chess variant for four players, that has been sold commercially, and is from Victor Manakin. However, at this moment, rules and more information are unknown - if you have so, please inform us, e.g., if you have the rules of this game. The picture below shows the set; the box reads: Tetra Das Schach zu Vieren. (The translation from German to English is approximately: Tetra: the Chess for four.)
