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

Delta88 Chess

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

Click the button to access the preset which uses an Hexagonal-Lattice board (from an idea by Joe Joyce) as an equivalent substitute for the original trigonal board.

The pieces and their movement on this board are shown below, the reachable cells being marked with a red star (or a blue star in the case of a pawn's capturing move).


king move


queen move


tower move


spire move

Knight Errant

knight errant move

Knight Paladin
