What is your favourite chess variant to play?
I have been playing chess for a few years now and recently I started to play around with some of the chess variants available on Lichess. Racing Kings is quite a fun one where the goal is to be the first player to get your King to the back rank. The strategy involved means you cant make a move which will put the opponents King in check, that move is illegal and not allowed.
What chess variant do you like to play?
There was a game called Losers Chess which I really liked to play a few years back, this question reminded me of it. I will need to play it again, the idea is to lose all your chess pieces to win the game. If there is a move where you can capture an opponents piece you must always do it, if there are several options to capture you just select which one. I have not tried the Racing Kings you mentioned, will try that too.
Chess960 is good, the starting position is random but the same chess rules apply.
