Chess Variants to Play Alone: Better Than Chess Puzzles?

Is it possible to play chess by yourself? In this video we explore the most popular single-player chess variants, and whether these can be called “chess” or not. These games are solitaire logic puzzles based on the main rules of chess: the pieces’ movements.
I also contribute by developing two games that were not publicly available online: the Queen’s Quadrille and Hippodrome variants. These were made with Unity in a week.
