Chicken Chess. Combines Losing and Benedict Chess. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The title has to do with the feeling you get when you have to make an opening move. It's sort of like playing 'Chicken' in that old James Dean movie. It feels like whoever has to go first is really vulnerable. However, you find out rapidly that the game is not as predictable as that!

Is the chicken in the variant name anything to do with 'eggs Benedict'?
