descriptionWebsite to play original chess variants
last changeFri, 27 Aug 2021 08:53:59 +0000 (10:53 +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”.
