Fog of War Chess

Hi forum!

I had been kicking around the idea of a chess variation where you can only see the spaces your pieces occupy or are attacking. Chess with imperfect knowledge.

Turns out -- it (of course!) already exists, and the rules have been thought through by people much smarter than myself.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_chess

And after some quick research, some people have already constructed websites in the past using the idea.

Is their appetite / interest / dev time for Lichess to add additional variants like dark chess?

I'm fairly certain this has been asked before in the past. Also it might mean something that the video you posted shows Toadofsky, who is a Lichess dev.

You can't post in the forums yet. Play some games!
