Website to play to many chess variants, including rare ones - some almost never seen elsewhere, like "l'Échiqueté" [french], renamed "checkered chess" in english.
- Games start with a random assymetric position!
- No ratings, no tournaments: no "competition spirit"
- Other npm packages (see package.json),
- Google font 'Open Sans' + a few icons,
Sounds and pieces images where found at various locations.
