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

Elite 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.

Elite Chess adds an Amazon to Capablanca's Game by adding one more row to the board. All the rules of regular chess apply. Castling is modified so the king may move 2, 3, or 4 squares then the rook jumps to the square on the opposite side of the king. If anyone knows of a similar game on an 11x8 board with the same set of pieces please post a comment about it so i can look at it, and play it.
