Chess960

Chess960 is a variation of chess invented by the 11th World Chess Champion, Bobby Fischer. It maintains the original chess flavour while ensuring the “live” creative spark. His idea was to shuffle the back row of pieces (with constraints to allow castling and preserve the opposing coloured bishop pairs), giving a total of 960 different starting positions

It’s easy to learn, and most importantly, fun to play.
