Originally posted by SiskinThat's pretty neat, here is a page that does the same thing (without a clock).
There's a new gizmo that consists of a folding chess clock that randomly generates starting positions for Fischer random chess (chess 960 as some call it). It's quite cheap as well.
Originally posted by hany3Yes, there is castling because one of the rules is that in the initial set-up, the king must be between the 2 rooks. Castling then can take place with the usual stipulations. In addition, there must be bishops on opposite coloured squares in the initial set-up.
Is there Castleing in these randam games?
Originally posted by DeeceI would like a full Fisher 960 implementation here at RHP, with castling, and its own rating, and all!
Yes, but not if you play here using a set position game. RHP only supports castling if the king and rooks start in the standard position. Apart from that fischer random games work quite well here.

Better would be a site idea thread, and a link here to that thread.
