The Chess Variant Pages

Link to: NARF!

NARF! is a Windows application that allows you to define and play your own board games: the way the men move, characteristics of the board, notation for saving game files, etc. Release 1 provides a wide variety of options for boards made with squares; it includes definitions of traditional games like chess, checkers, shogi, xiangqi and go as examples. Subsequent releases will provide server logic for playing opponents on the Internet, a move generator for playing against the computer, boards made of hexagons and other new features and enhancements.
