Corner Chess

Corner Chess differs from the classic Chess by its starting position of pieces:
  • Both kings are located at lower right corners (from the particular player's point of view) - it explains the name of this variation.
  • Other pieces except pawns, i.e. queen, both rooks, both bishops and both knights are randomly placed at the first row (from the particular player's point of view).
  • One bishop must stand on a white square and the other one on a black square.
  • Pawns will stay on their normal position - the second (seventh) row.
  • Starting positions of both players are center-symmetrical. It means that e.g. if the white queen stands on c1 square, the black queen will be placed to f8 square.
The following picture shows an example of a starting position.



The rules of this game are the same as for the standard chess with these differences:
  • No castling is allowed.
