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.

This is a link to an external site for: ChessWar


From the site: "ChessWar is a strategic game for two players. It is meant to be played on standard chessboard with standard chess pieces although it can also be used on any kind of battlefield made of squares. It is NOT chess with dice and some extra rules! Instead, it is strategic game played with chess pieces. So, pieces are not automatically captured, some pieces (units) have ranged attacks and all your pieces (units) may move during your turn."
