The Chess Variant Pages

Check out Hectochess, our featured variant for November, 2023.

Since Java is no longer supported in most browsers, our Java applets probably will not run unless you install an extension that will run them. We recommend installing the CheerpJ Applet Runner extension on Edge, Chrome, or another Chromium browser. If your browser still does support Java, and you're not using this extension, make sure this site is listed in your Java exceptions list. You should find this in the Security tab of your Java control panel.

If you had a Java-capable browser, you could play Double Move Chess #2 here.
Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once

White makes the first single move, then each side gets two moves per turn. The object simply is to capture the other king. One must move if possible, but a stalemate is simply a pass. Fred Galvin, 1957
