The measure of a man is not what he does for wages, but what he does for leisure. Do you play?

Fairy Fischer Non-Random Chess

The idea of Fischer random chess is cool insofar as it's a bust to the King's Gambit, and every other opening ~ but it removes the player's sense of agency and that's a problem.

We've created an app where we apply the heuristic of point/piece value assignment and - with the standard board as an upper bound - give the player the freedom to orchestrate their configuration however they see fit. We've also got some fairy pieces in there to keep things interesting.


It's called tschess (The End of Chess), you can find the download links there on the homepage.

If you've got any comments, questions, feedback ~ I'd be very happy to hear from you!
