    There are many, many more ways to mate the black king. I don't see why you're stuck with one move.

    The little upside down triangle shows a drop down menu.

    Chess 960 may be very useful for developing tactical skills. Currently I enjoy it even more than a classical set-up. It makes you think literally from move 1.

    I optimized hexagonal chess for future Fischer Chess. Also I have board for cylindric optimization.

    What is Chess960?

    Chess960 (also called FischerRandom) is just like regular chess... except that the starting position is shuffled to include 960 different possible positions! So you can throw out your opening book...

    ...and replace your five-volume set of ECO with a 4,800-volume set!

    My King and Rook are next to each other on the kingside, f1 and g1, not moved them yet, can I castle them or not? It won't let me put the move in by clicking on king then rook, http://www.chess.com/echess/game?id=125152064

    Never mind, I just realised I am black, so that is my queenside not my kingside!, so my queen is blocking castling at the moment,

    I can see that 960 theory has a bit to go yet, like learning which is the "kingside" and which is the "queenside."

    Chess may be dying, but 960 isn't even out of diapers yet.
