descriptionWebsite to play original chess variants
last changeThu, 28 May 2020 21:13:50 +0000 (23:13 +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”.
