The Chess Variant Pages


This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

Shogi-of-Chesstonia is a 9 x 12 Shogi variant inwhich only pawns promote; and they can only promote to pieces which start out along a player's first rank [excluding King].  The piece set includes modern War Machines, modern Elephants, Knights, Ferz, Wazir, King, Queen, Dragon Horse and Dragon King.
The 9 Pawns move and capture as do Shogi Pawns, but have an initial 2-step move option.  Captured promoted pawns maintain their promoted status.
