You are on the backup site for 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.

The Chess Variant Pages

External Link

This is a link to an external site for: Bastardo


Four Italian boys made a chess variant for four players, called Bastardo. It is a variant not to be taken too heavily, to be played by friends, probably after a few beers? Along with the rules, you find photo's of their chess set with pieces made of Mandelbrot sets, multifaced dice, marbles, and tarot cards.
