    Hello,
    I don't know if you thought of it, but it would be nice if we could play Bobby Fischer chess, also known as chess 960 on RHP. What do you think ?

    It would be a good idea.

    You can play now using a set position game. Only thing that doesn't work is castling if the king and rooks have non-standard starting positions.

    Would be nice to implement the 960-rules in action.
    And have a separate rating too.

    The usual rules of chess is only a special case of 960-rulse, so it is worthwhile.

    (P.S. Yes, I've changed my mind abut 960!)

    In terms of actually playing the games, all that is required is an implementation of the chess 960 castling rules. Then on the create game page there could be a flag indicating a 960 game, edit box to enter game number and a button to randomly pick one of the layouts. At least that's what I see in my head.

    If the games were rated then I agree that it would have to be a separate rating.

    Chess-960 tournaments would be interesting as well.
