You are on the backup site for Chessvariants.com. 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



Eight-Stone 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.

Either player can move neutral stones either as wazirs or over lines the stones form. Stones can swap places with adjacent pieces which can make it dangerous to leave an exposed piece next to a stone. The Ko Rule states that a player can not return a stone to the same place it was before his opponent's last move.
