Chess Variants


The following table is defining the chess variants:

  1. Board dimension (files &× rows) -- size of piece set.
  2. Standard board setup position.
  3. Control position.
  4. Formalized board rules (FBR) for this variant.
  5. Piece set and rules describing the characteristics of the pieces (using MBN = Modified Betza Notation).

Note that not all chess variants use the standard piece set, for many chess variants a standard piece set is not defined. A variant using a standard piece set is decorated with a star behind the variant name, this means that these piece identifiers must be used inside the move section of the game. For all other variants the attribute controlposition inside the game element has to be set, this control position helps to identify the used piece set. Even the piece names can be used for identification. Furthermore the control position provides all known piece names. Choose a name according to the following rules:

  1. If you like to show the original name, then prefer ths first name enclosed with stars (for instance "*Pào*" for the Cannon in Xiangqi; of course, the stars have to be elminated). In some variants the white and black pieces have different names, so you might choose the name (enclosed inside stars) associated with the lowercase letter for the black piece. If you do not want to differentiate between the black and white pieces,then always prefer the name for White (associated with uppercase letter). Example:

    e1=K|*Shuái*||Marshal||!King!| k|*Jiáng*||!General!|

    "Shuái" can be used for both White and Black. But it's also possible to differentiate White and Black, so use "Shuái" for the White piece, and "Jiáng" for the Black piece.

  2. If you like to show the localized (English) name, then choose the first name which is not enclosed (with stars or exclamation marks). Example: Choose "Chariot" if the string "a1=R|*Jū*||*Chē*"||Chariot||Car||!Rook!|" is given. In some variants the white and black pieces have different names, so you might choose the name associated with the lowercase letter for the black piece. If you do not want to differentiate between the black and white pieces,then always prefer the name for White (associated with uppercase letter), except if the black piece has a localized name enclosed inside exclamation marks, in this case choose this name for White and Black. Example:

    e1=K|*Shuái*||Marshal||!King!| k|*Jiáng*||!General!|

    "General" can be used for both White and Black. It's also possible to use the name "Marshal" for the white piece, and "General" for the black piece.

  3. Some applications prefer simplified names for the pieces. In this case the name associated with uppercase letter (White) enclosed inside exclamation marks should be used. Example:

    e1=K|*Shuái*||Marshal||!King!|

    Here "King" is the preferred name.

    If no name enclosed inside exclamation marks is available, then choose the first localized name (not enclosed inside stars). Example:

    d1=Q|*Mantri*||*Mantra*||*Senapati*||Counsellor||Minister||Queen|

    The preferred name is "Counsellor". Here "Queen" is not emphasized with exclamation marks, because it is a quite unluckily localization for this piece (in Chaturanga); "Queen" is only given to piece matching.

  4. The names enclosed inside colons (like :Werewolf:) will not be used for matching. These names are shared, this means that a pair of pieces, or even more pieces, will share a name. But in any case each piece always has a unique name, a shared name is only an addition.

Note: If a variant is only using (a subset of) the pieces King (K), Queen (Q), Rook (R), Bishop (B), Knight (K), and Pawn (P), then this set is a standard piece set.
