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

Pritchard asks for information

David B. Pritchard, author of the Encyclopedia of Chess Variant (a work which shouldn't be missed by any chess variant enthusiast) writes me:

Please feel free to give my name & address if you wish as someone who would welcome correspondence from variant inventors and researchers. There is always the possibility of a second edition of my ECV as the first edition may sell out by the end of the year.

Pritchard's address is:

Badgers Wood
Hascombe Road
Surrey GU8 4AA
United Kingdom

You can also order your copy of the Encyclopedia of Chess Variants at this address (easiest when you have a credit card): see Philip Cohen's review of this book.
