Chess on a 12 by 12 board

This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

This chess variant starts with the usual chess pieces, set up in the central 8x8 grid of a 12x12 board. The rules are carried over from the traditional 8x8 game, with White pawns promoting on the 10th rank and Black pawns promoting on the 3rd rank.
