Wich do you prefer, Chess or Chess960
Chess. I don't know why, chess 960 feels somewhat chaotic. Chess seems to be more beautiful, although chess960 does test the strenght of the player outside memorized lines. Even then, I like to memorize lines and feel secure with them.
Yeah, come on everyone, keep em' comin'
chess 960, just because opening theory seems to be groving way too much. Not that it matter to me one bit, but on master level
6 votes already, this is great, keep em' commin
chess960 for sure :)
5 votes Chess,
2 votes Chess960
Chess 960! Because i feel it's a real test if your skills and tactics! In standard game or chess Anyone can memorize good openings and beautiful openings and hence secure a win but in 960, it's a test of your midllegame understanding and how much u can play tactics! I feel it's the real rating of your skills :-) So my vote - Chess 960
3 votes Chess960
Just a note.

If you add that to the votes posted on here, that totals
You can fine a link to the first forum here.
Each has its own merits, in my opinion. But I definitely play more standard chess, but the question is: why? Out of habit? No, I think it's because the games seem to be more elegant for some reason. :)
Chess960 or Fisher SHUFFLE !!!
where i click, i wanna go fisher shuffle, i want mi 960 board NOW!!!
960 includes the old chess, and other variants may be good fun, Imagine a Fisher Shuffle where all the pieces are born by a dice, we could see a king and 7 queens, or 7 kings and one queen, I named it Total chess and that variant includes both 960 fisher shuffle and old boring mother fucker studied to the ashes old chess. Say goodbye to the openning theory for ever. We could have a game with no kings (due to simetry of forces) and in that case the last standing piece wins the war. Kings are normal pieces until the only one remais alive. It's ''medieval'' , it is bloody war, blood, sweat, surprises, extremely including, too much endeed. Help ask for that in every good site. The most fun is yet to be sorted out. No new pieces, nothing new to learn , but a completely new madness. A rule like castling can be erased and so it is easier to understand. Castling breakes the physics of chess. Total chess is very wide endeed , just one possibility here, anything you want, promote pawn to pawn ! If you want to !

Q R N K p p B K
Dice roll = 1 pawn, 2 knight, 3 bishop, 4 rook, 5 queen, 6 king, no new piece, you know what it takes to move. Equal forces guaranteed by mirror simetry. 8 x 8, but soon larger fields may be tryed
Too late, try joining chess.com earlier next time.
