You are on the backup site for Chessvariants.com. 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.

Pixelpusher variant: Almost chess

Almost chess is a variant, invented by Ralph Betza. Here you see an applet that plays this variant with the strength of the Pixelpusher program: i.e., it is mostly a challenge to lose from this program.

This only works with Java enabled browsers.

See the index file for how to use the applet, version information, and more variants. The applet does not work with Netscape 3 or Internet Explorer 3.
