You are on the backup site for Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

The Chess Variant Pages

Sorcerer Chess

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

The game is identical to orthodox chess in every aspect except for extended en-passant rules, initial pawn moves, flexible castling and the optional drop rule.

The extra pieces in middle of board will disappear after starting the preset. Drop a piece as follows: GRY-a0 Where GRY represents the prefix of piece to be dropped and a0 represents the coordinate.
