  • Our Mission Statement

    The Gothic Chess Federation is a membership-based organization dedicated to promoting a patented variation of the game of chess that features two new pieces types. The Chancellor can move like a Rook or a Knight on any turn. The Archbishop can move like a Bishop or a Knight on any turn. To complete the castling manuever, the King must move three squares, instead of two as in regular chess. Our board contain 80 squares; 10 "files" across by 8 "ranks" high. The Gothic Chess board is wider than a regular chess board, but both are the same height. Pawns can promote to any piece on the board except the King and Pawn, therefore the two new pieces are promotion options as well. All other chess rules are identical.
