Introducing Crazy Games on ChessJam!

Today we opened a new room on ChessJam called Crazy Games and as the name implies, this room has some crazy online chess variations. You'll find 14 tables, each with a unique starting position. Each table has a name that gives a hint as to what you can expect.

Crazy Tables:
  • Queens
  • 5+5
  • Triple Knights
  • Pawnless
  • 15 Pointer
  • Mirror Mirror
  • Mind the Gap
  • Double Double
  • Totem Pole
We've also included five tables with positions from the middle of some famous historical games. Each link below takes you to a page where you can see the entire game.
Games in this room do not impact your rating or stats so there is no risk in going crazy! Below are some screen shots to entice you to come play.
