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.

I first stumbled across this site back in 2016 when I found an image of Fergus Duniho's Gross Chess. This image ignited my interest in chess variants. Later on that year, I also developed an interest in Shogi variants as well. I have invented several variants myself. In fact, shortly after I found the image of Gross Chess I went on a "chess variant inventing spree," though I would end up scrapping many of those games. However, I have preserved a few of them, and I still carry my passion for Chess, Shogi, and their variants to this day.

IMPORTANT: When you use my ID in Game Courier, use chessshogi instead of ChessShogi. Sinning against this directive will cause the games to not appear on my Games for Game Courier Page. This is because the code running the site is case-sensitive in some places, but not in others. For other uses, using ChessShogi should not cause any problems, but for safe keeping, it is best to use chessshogi instead.
