My questions are: Has anyone ever played a variant of chess such that in the starting position Bishops and Knights are switched? (So White's back row looks like this: RBNQKNBR) How can I find notes on this variant?

I've just asked a chess question that was not strictly about chess, and while it was accepted as a good enough question, I was referred to the meta site for analyzing any further dubious questions. If it doesn't fit in at boardgames, where should I ask it?

Thanks!

  • I think the knight's tour question would have been a reasonable fit for the maths stack exchange site too. – tttppp Jun 21 '11 at 11:49

I think variant questions are fine, as long as they're normally good questions to ask.

Having said that, I don't thnk "Has anyone ever played X" questions are good questions.

You might try something more like "Is there a known chess variant that ...".

  • Thank you! I've been wondering many things about chess, for years, and just now came across stack exchange. I must say I am very impressed! It's a sure recipe for happy users! – Daniel Jun 20 '11 at 16:34

    How's this: Is there a variant of chess such that in the starting position Bishops and Knights are switched? Where can I learn more about this variant? - I know it's two questions, but the second can be inside, and the first can be the title. – Daniel Jun 20 '11 at 16:36
  • That'd probably be ok. – Lance Roberts Jun 20 '11 at 16:53
