Castling in Chess 960. New castling rules for Fischer Random Chess. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This can be argued. Chess 480 Castling rules sometime throw the King in the Center of the board. The only (arguably better) alternative I can think of is castling to b-file or g-file (unlike c-file or g-file used in FischerRandom), but this remains unnamed though, and is not intuitive.
