    Hi,
    I am new to this site. I would like to play unusual board
    Settings. How far can i go setting up my own board.
    Looks like there are some limitations and i noticed
    Strange behavior of pawns, some are able to move sideways
    Like in Berolina chess. Any ideas or explanation would be
    Appreciated,
    Cheers.

    You can set up your won board when clicking on "New game" and choosing "Set board game" on the left hand side menue.

    I don't think that you can make pawns go sideways...

    what a hoot!
    I didn't know you could set up like that...

    its tricky enough with 4 horsies on the board let alone 14 ... :-)
