    The official Gothic Chess set standard configuration is shown above.

    From left to right, starting on square a1 and ending on square j1, the pieces are the: Rook, Knight, Bishop, Queen, Chancellor (Rook + Knight), King, Archbishop (Bishop + Knight), Bishop, Knight, and Rook.

    As you can see, the board is 10 columns wide by 8 rows in height. The squares are green and white, the same as the regulation boards used in United States Chess Federation tournaments.

    This variation of chess was invented by Ed Trice in the year 2000, and it is poised to occupy the next stage in the evolution of chess. Chess has become increasingly more drawish in nature in the upper eschelons, but Gothic Chess is still lively enough to conclude with decisive victories in over 97% of all games played.

    The bold, attacking player will tend to like Gothic Chess more than regular chess, and the staunch defender and counterattacker will have a greater arsenal of traps to set for such players as well. It has been said that Gothic Chess will be the preferred way to play chess for the next 1000 years.
