    what rules? 

  • #66

    I assume all rules are the same except for piece position, correct?

  • #67

    So what happens if I want to castle?

    There's no such thing as chess960... I have, however, heard of Fischer random.

    I have written something similar before here.  Several questions:  Is it not a major accomplishment to draw a game that one was close to losing?   Does anyone seriously think that ratings would be significantly different in 960 than those in Chess?  A disciplined, experienced play will far outrank one without those qualities.

    soon there's gonna be opening books on all possible 960 positions

  • #75

    yes maybe there are already some and we dont know it

  • #76

    Where did you get that information?  How many 960 players are there out there who might buy such books? Did you read the comment above yours?

  • #77

    As far as I know there are only analysis books of Chess960 games. They only show tactics and strategical ideas, though, so it's not that new, only more thought provoking in a way that you need to think outside the box.
