Just what I was looking for. Great design. I like that each possible layout has the associated number between 1-960 in case you wanted to repeat a layout. Bummer for people who thought this was a chess engine—it’s not. This is just a randomizer for chess960 layout for pieces.

Not recommended

Only a generator!?. How about you put that fact at the top of the description instead of at the end of it. I wasted my money.

Does exactly what it says on the box.

Attractive, easy to use interface, uncluttered and minimalist. Everything works brilliantly.
