Play Musketeer Chess Online with Game Courier

Invented by Zied Haddad, Musketeer Chess is played like Chess except that the two players agree upon a couple of extra pieces to use in the game, which are kept offboard behind two pieces in the back rank until the pieces in front of them move away. This game includes ten extra pieces players may choose from. Any game of Musketeer Chess uses only two out of ten of these pieces.
