Fischer Random pieces arrangement manual for home play :)

KoldC45E

Most of the professional chess players are already familiar with the Fischer Random chess & rule. I as an amateur really love this variant. So, to make it more popular like we all hope, we could start spread the FR at home, with awr Family & Friends !

Invite your brother / friend who never play this variant and teach them how to play.

In the tournament, the arrangement of pieces are on the hand of the tournament arbiters with the help of software. But when you play with your brother ( just the two of you), then who would choose the position ?

1. You could start like classical chess, decide who play as White & who`s Black, then set up the pawns position like in regular.

2. Then you should teach the "restriction" on the randomization

* The king must be placed on a square between the rooks

* The bishops must be placed on opposite-color squares.

3. And continue like these in White side position ...

* Whoever play as White choose the King position, then the Black choose the Queen position.

* Next will back to the White player to decide where white Bishop to be placed, followed by the Black player to choose the black Bishop position.

* After that, the White player decide where the 1st Knight to be placed, followed by the Black to decide the other Knight`s position

* The last will be two Rook position, N like before, it turn back to White to decide the position followed by Black decision to choose the position of the other Rook.

4. Make similar arrangement position on Black side.

Okay, that's my simple guidance for ye all amateur who love Fischer Random. Lets make this variant great like this another topic`s wish ( https://www.chess.com/forum/view/general/will-fischer-random-chess-now-also-become-more-popular-and-accepted-on-all-levels ) .

Sounds good. I would just add one thing, because it was not clear to me from your post, if they do not know how to play regular chess, it might be better to start with the basics first.

I recently came across this chess variant and also enjoy it. happy.png

Sounds fun

After multiple experiences, I suggest that players better choose the rook position before choosing the King`s position to preserve the legal position for King according to the "restriction".

O Connor, invite peoples who already know the rule of classical chess, because it is easier. Start with people on your family or friends in the neighborhood.

N remember, for yer own safety play, it iz not recommended to invite stranger to play the Fischer Random in yer house..  n also Do not kidnap someone just to play the variant with you,Connor tongue.pnggrin.png,because it iz against the lawwink.png
