Does anybody know a website where I can play Cylinder Chess? I'm looking for something similar to Chess.com but for Cylinder.

    The wiki page you posted has a link to such a website. Sep 28, 2014 at 19:30
  • Yes, but you cannot play live games, only correspondence games on that site. Sep 28, 2014 at 19:42
  • I don't know a site for playing live against humans, but you can play cylinder chess against the variants engine Fairy-Max.

For those who are still looking for somewhere to easily play cylinder chess online (live), you can now do so on cylinderchess.com. I'm a student and put this web app together in my spare time. It's entirely free to use (+ no plugins needed and no ads). Gameplay is on an animated 3D cylinder or you can choose to play on a square board (pieces still wrap around the board).


I am not familiar with this variant, but as most variants, pathguy has it. You can also play in http://brainking.com/ correspondence and using http://home.hccnet.nl/h.g.muller/CVfairy.html to play against an engine.

Also I cannot confirm it, but ICC has lots of chess variants. You might want to check it out.


If i remember correctly, you can play this variant on www.buho21.com. The only problem is that nearly everything is written in spanish there.
