This may be a stupid question but how do I get this option?
It's only available via online (correspondence) chess.
Go to Play (top left), then click "online chess", then "start new game", then under the Select Game Options (top-ish left) change "standard chess" to "chess960"
hope that chess.com do it
How do you castle? Move the king first?
Click on the king, and then click on the castling rook.
are there "en passant" move in chess 960?
Yes, all the rules are the same except for the starting setup.
Anyone here knows about a website that can arrange for online live 960chess?
ChessCube. Much worse than chess.com in all other respects though
There is funnode.com too, very basic and small user base and the castling does not (yet) work, but has a bunch of other games too, such as Go...
(Here's hoping the site will not use censorship to block people from gaining access to a game that chess.com should have implemented many years ago, that would be uncouth indeed.)
new convert here love how the 960 variant has got my synapses zinging thankyou Sir Robert Fischer for introducing this variant to the game i love
