Mystery Chess is an imperfect information variant of Chess, created by Ross Gillies. In this game, you each select one of your pieces as a Mystery piece, and the identity of each player's selection is kept secret from the opponent until the end of the game. The game is won by capturing your opponent's Mystery piece or by checkmating your opponent with the help of your Mystery piece. The game can be played here with a variety of different piece sets, boards, and rendering methods. You can select the one you prefer.
