You are on the backup site for 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.

Davis Variation of Suicide Chess

Michael D. Davis wrote,

"In this game, you win by being the first to checkmate (as usual), or by
being the first to lose your queen, rooks, knights, and bishops.  If the
game ends  with a checkmate and the destruction of the opponent's said
men, the checkmate overrules."
