Chess by FarawayPictures Chess by FarawayPictures
OK, so everybody (and their mum) does a chess set. I thought I'd go a bit different and make the very seldom seen round chess board. It's a 100% official Chess Federation board. I've played it a few times and it's a very interesting game, some of your best pieces become limited and others become very powerful. I made one from an old dart board.
The image shows how to set up the board. The inner pieces are from outer to inner: Castle, Knight, Bishop and then King and Queen as usual on her own colour.

UPDATE:
I've had so many questions etc about this board I thought I'd make a downloadable board for you to try playing this way:

It's a cool image. Although, it does make me ask which direction the pawns go and do the pawns just go in a circle around the board or can they be promoted?

Yes, they go forward around the board...and yes, they can be promoted. All the normal rules apply to this official variant.

If you can play chess you should pick it up really easily.
