Play Neoclassical Chess (“Nc Chess”) with this app !

You will also need a real chess board and chess set, as well as a
physically present human opponent, The app provides the initial position
for play.

The Neoclassical Chess Club app contains the main variant of Neoclassical Chess and allows an extremely easy and fun use in a club environment or in tournaments with a reduced number of participants. The referee or one of the players can go table by table starting each game, pressing the button "New initial position" and leaving the position "frozen" for the players to execute the three initial moves, which are shown in progression.

Neoclassical Chess CLUB is a chess application for players of all levels, from learning beginner to dedicated amateur to players of the highest competitive levels. It opens the door to an exciting “new classical” chess.

In Neoclassical Chess all rules are exactly as in classical chess, except that play starts after three full moves from White and Black, those of a game taken at random from a large, carefully selected database of recent chess master games. As a consequence, openings appear in proportion to their frequency in master practice, providing a single worldwide standard for play. The app provides the initial position and the moves leading to it just before the start of play.

Neoclassical chess is the domain of OTB (Over the Board) play, of live chess performance and creative play. It is also the only chess variant ever invented that fully respects the history of the game. That is why we say it is more than a variant: it is an “evolution” of chess, but it’s above all chess.
