Same as normal Chess where the initial position changes. The pieces on the 1'st and 8'th row can be randomly placed.
also called fischer random
And what about a scholars mate in fischer random??
A better move for black instead of 3...Nf6?? would be 3... Nxc4!, capturing the bishop, followed up by 4... g6, threatening the queen.
That is the dummest thing I've ever heard of in my life and I have a brother with downs.
Shannon number attempts to set an upper bound for possible logical games for random chess.
king must be between the two rooks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess960
not in random chess
fionas88888, There can't be 2 same colored bishops at the start of the game!
The last diagram is illegal in Fischer Random, both bishops are on the same coloured squares and the king is not between the rooks.
