    "won't he just let it go?" i hear someone ask...

    and the answer:

    no, i think this would be cool. unrated FR option to automatically randomize the backrow according to FR rules.

    we should have it. i love this site. help me to love it more.

    FR would be nice, never tried it, no books!
    The only thing for sure is the value of squares, center will still
    be top of the mountain, etc. Knights, bishops, queens will still
    be strongest in the center so that part of the game will never
    change.

    You can do almost anything with the "set piece" option. You don't need special types of play for that.

    I won't rule it out in the future, so when I re-write the core of RHP, I will make sure it supports FR. This is something I have intended to do due the legacy code in there, but there is no real rush because when it ain't broke, an' all that….

    To introduce it now would not be easy though, so don't expect to just appear any time soon.

    I knew it was silly to ask, but I just had to, to be 100% sure! 🙁

    Would castling work correctly using a set piece game where the king and/or rooks were not on a1, h1, e1, and similarly for Black?

    Anyone care to try?

    No it would not.

    This is why I would need to re-write some core code.

    There is a site which caters very well for those interested in chess variants.

    These include FR, and Stanley Random (SR) Chess.

    Of course, there's standard (or Simplified Stanley Random) chess too.
