Who can legalize and support the annual Waterloo (chess variant) tournament?

Hi Ivan, what do you want a volunteer to do?

Set it up on a separate website, or just keep track of player's games?

I like Waterloo. What is you position on people playing it with different graphics (same rules as your webpage, but just different graphics for pieces)?

I hope to find city and influential people to hold a three day's summit of chess amateurs with the tournament Waterloo 2018.

P.S.

I said already that own graphics is a norm for contemporary chess.

Oh, That sounds fun. Unfortunately there is not enough OTB (live chess) near me to hold a tournament. The only games I think is some people that play role-playing (Dungeons and Dragons, and new versions of it). They have life-long characters, and are very dedicated - I don't think they will switch to Waterloo. Too bad.frustrated.png

I'm an optimist. Don't forget that the Waterloo chess appeared in the game club Samsung where youth are playing only Counter strike, Lineage and Warcraft.
