General Discussion / IS THE CHESS VARIANT FORUM DEAD?
« on: September 30, 2018, 07:44:24 pm »
Hello,

What happened to all of the activity we had on here earlier this year? While some remains, It has at the very least taken a huge dive. Do any of you know how we can get activity back up?
Thanks,
Asher

General Discussion / Forum Announcement and Contest
« on: June 07, 2018, 08:52:15 pm »
Hello!

You may have noticed that the forum is experiencing somewhat of a mid year lull, which is to be expected. Nevertheless I have been busy at work improving it! Besides various bug fixes and page loading problems now mended you all now have access to all of the emoticons that would be seen on an Apple mobile product messaging application, I hope you enjoy! I'm just happy I can now use the flag of Uzbekistan  on my website.

Anyway as my judges from around the world are getting back to me with the long overdue results for the 10x10 contest slowly and surely (I totally am never relying of twenty super busy people scattered around the world as a viable judging method ever again) I have decided for the summer to make a short and sweet contest that is easy to judge and I can actually do by myself.

Since I will be extremely busy almost all summer I'll give you all until August 15th revise and edit your games for submission!

You must design a playable and enjoyable variant on a board of six by five squares. The rest is up to you!

Thanks,
Asher

General Discussion / Fake Medieval Chess
« on: April 05, 2018, 06:02:26 pm »
I saw this on youtube, he unfortunately convinced some poor kid that his modern variant was how chess was played during the middle ages for his homework. Don't worry! I pointed him to my Shatranj tutorial. An interesting variant nonetheless.
