Pixelpusher variant: Centerless chess
A not-often player chess variant is Centerless chess. Here, the four squares
in the center cannot be used. The applet below plays this variant against you,
but does it very badly: it just selects a random move.
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.
