    Is it possible to castle in a random start? I tried but was unable to. Has anyone done it?

    What do you mean random start? A set piece game? Bottom right hand corner when setting it up shows whether castling is possible.

    Fischer Random Chess introduces new rules so that full castling options are retained in all starting positions, resulting in 960 unique positions.

    Thank you for the URL. I was always wondering how to castle in Fischer 960 games (I lost many won games because of my opponents' unexpected castle).
