Eight-Stone Chess

This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

Either player can move neutral stones either as wazirs or over lines the stones form. Stones can swap places with adjacent pieces which can make it dangerous to leave an exposed piece next to a stone. The Ko Rule states that a player can not return a stone to the same place it was before his opponent's last move.
