back rank chess icon Back Rank Chess - (c) AI Factory 2004
This turns Chess upside down. The king, rather than hide away, actually charges at the enemy! The new object is to win by placing your king on the opponent's back rank. Check and Checkmate are illegal, making the king a very powerful piece, that can defend other pieces in surprising and subtle ways. This is a strange and compelling game!
