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: FreePawnChess


FreePawnChess is chess where there are no pawn promotions nor two step pawn moves nor en passant captures but there are freer pawn moves. The initial positions of the White and Black pieces are centrally symmetric. The pieces and their movements, other than the pawns, and the objectives of the game are the same as those of standard chess, FreePawnChess is a different kind of chess.
