Play Eurasian Chess on Game Courier

Eurasian Chess, invented by Fergus Duniho, combines elements of western and asian forms of Chess. These presets enforce the rules and spot check, checkmate, and stalemate. The rules they enforce are the new version, which differs from the old by using the same rules for Pawn promotion as Grand Chess. They should allow any legal move and forbid any illegal move. If they don't, please inform Fergus Duniho. A couple different graphic options are available here, each in full-size CSS or reduced JPG or PNG image. Click on a button to choose one.

These presets use the eurasian include file.
