Cetina Random Chess. Play with a sissa and a chancellor from a randomly generated setup.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Legler's Chess or Neo-Chess (1923) may be the first variant to try replacing one rook and one knight in each army. This may be the first shuffle chess variant to have chancellors on the board. I have never been able to make up my mind whether the sissa is a good idea or a bad idea for a new chess piece. But I can definitely give Carlos full credit for inspiring my variant 'Carrera Random Chess' and its revision 'Pairwise Drop Chess'. See the Comments section on the Carrera's Chess page for the game rules.
