    I can't seem to castle in Chess960 setups. When I drag the King over the Rook it says "illegal move". Neither King nor Rook has moved and no blocking checks. Bug in software or am I missing something? Playing on app and chrome browser.Game 12111738

    As far as I know this has not been implemented so far. Here is a link to a discussion about it in the 'site ideas' forum.

    Thanks. That is disappointing. Castling is key in chess960. Wish I knew before starting the game.

    Well, the good news is that on this site, the fischer random games are 'set-piece' games and therefore are unrated.
