The minor pieces (N, B, R) disrupt the opening strategy. They are exchanged, sacrificed, or ideally exchanged for a variant piece (L...

Re: Playing against the Computer

I've been using the 2D version because it's easier for me to see what's going on. Maybe the castling is only in the 3D version. I'll play a game right now and check. I'll clear the cache too. Yeaaah!

Cerebral (edema) Chess variant

Hello, My name is Keith Williams, and thanks to Dr. Zied Haddad, I'm able to share my new variant of chess. I'd like to explain how I developed it over the past couple of years.
