The next version of chess

Post by Mats Winther » Sat Aug 07, 2010 11:49 am

This is the future of chess:

"Future Chess", played on the Gustavian board with extra
empty corner squares. Players are allowed to relocate the
pieces before play begins. Castling rules follow Chess960,
however with an extra option of jumping one square farther
toward the corner, to take control of the extra corner


These rules create an immense strategical variance. In
addition to the opening variance the extra corner squares
serve as sanctuaries for the king, which makes play on
the same wing easier to achieve. This allows an enormous
number of new opening and middle game strategies.
