Odd Chess Types You Didn’t Know Existed

These are some of the best and weird Chess variants that you probably didnt know existed!



  1. Theres even more then just those

    Theres also rewinding chess where the only way to win in to bring all of your pieces back to the original starting positions as if you played the game backwards

    Losing chess where the only way to win is to get all of your prices captured by your opponent

    Anti king chess where you can win by either checkmating the opponent’s king or checkmating the opponent’s anti king

    Double kings chess where the only way to win is to capture all of your opponents kings

    And even more

  2. Well, if the duck is real how does it move???

  3. Woah I sacrifice the ROO-Last words before 6th August 1945 💀

  4. How about "Really bad chess" on the phone. It's like that Chess 960 but everything is randomized

  5. Fun Fact:In Atomic Chess the King can not capture anything.

  6. you forgot the most mind melting versions of chess, 5d chess with multiverse timetravel and quantum chess

  7. 1:25 actually queen is not trapped becouse Qg5 and duck can stop bishop attack 🤓🤓

  8. Are these AI generated videos?

  9. What about 5d chess with multiverse time travel?

  10. You forgot to mention that in chess960, the king has to be in between the rooks to allow castling and also the bishops have to be on opposite color squares

  11. Hang on wait, there's a version of this game without a duck?

  12. It's weird that duck chess needs to capture the king

  13. bro forgot ohio chess, the gamemode where you can make a pawn mechabot

  14. Duck chess is the only one new to me (though I just learned about hexagon chess). So many good variants. Haha

  15. Beatiful video! Also, im first

  16. Beatiful video! Also, im second

    edit: i also subbed

  17. my friend legit made ohio chess.. AND MADE A RULEBOOK AND IT WAS A GOOD WAY TO PLAY????? idk man i think imma go crazy

  18. Okay, you win. I acknowledge I did not know all of these beautiful variations. 👏
    As for the first I saw from yours, it was a greater video than I was expecting! Therefore you have my subscription too!

  19. I don't think that the duck can be considered a piece

  20. Chess960 is the varient that makes the most sense to me while the others are quite random

  21. Duck chess in still a thing not a old chess type

  22. Got to love atomic chess, it's brilliantly fun (I'm definitely not a top 30 atomic chess Grandmaster who is completely biased)
