Check out Alice Chess, our featured variant for June, 2024.

Since Java is no longer supported in most browsers, our Java applets probably will not run unless you install an extension that will run them. We recommend installing the CheerpJ Applet Runner extension on Edge, Chrome, or another Chromium browser. If your browser still does support Java, and you're not using this extension, make sure this site is listed in your Java exceptions list. You should find this in the Security tab of your Java control panel.

Heraldic Chess IV

If you had a Java-capable browser, you could play Heraldic Chess IV here.
Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once

You may only play the kinds of units shown on the dice currently rolled. A pegasus allows you to play any unit.

You can obtain a set from the game's inventor, Modest Solans, in Spain. Click here for more information, or here for the rulebook.
