The fascinating miniature chess or mini-chess ' that is chess on a 6 by 6 board. I know there are tons of decent chess programs but has anyone written a decent chess program for mini-chess. Is there a free downloadable mini-chess program or 'chess engine'?

  • Is there any chess program for 6 by 6 chess?

  • Chess programs for a 6 by 6 game of chess would be great practice for regular chess.

Zillions of Games isn't free, but it plays Los Alamos chess. ChessV plays 50 chess variants. I believe Sjaak plays microchess.

In case you're interested, there is an Android app for that and you can play with the engine: Mini Chess
