descriptionWebsite to play original chess variants
last changeSun, 13 Sep 2020 20:53:54 +0000 (22:53 +0200)


Website to play to many chess variants, including rare ones - some almost never seen elsewhere, like “l'Échiqueté” [french], renamed “checkered chess” in English. No ratings, no tournaments: no “competition spirit”.
