    ChessBoss Monthly Tournament
    Excerpt from ChessBoss site:

    ChessBoss Monthly ChessCube Tournament

    This new variant of chess, named ChessCube, involves rolling a cube with a different chess piece displayed on each side. Each player rolls a cube on their turn and must move the piece corresponding to the face-up side of the cube. If a piece is unable to move, the player loses his or her turn. ChessCube offers a new way to play the game, training players to become better at chess with an aspect of randomness providing new situations and revealing new moves for players to consider. The monthly tournament pays $300 to the winner of each tournament, $150 to the second place and $50 for third place.

    My comment:

    Another interesting chess variant, but as 99% of us realize, adding randomness (ie. a dice) completely changes the nature of the game. This is not chess, and making wild claims that ChessCube will help you improve at chess is ridiculous. You may as well be playing poker!

    Nevertheless, enjoy.
