There are many chess variants that you can try to spice up a regular chess game and playing chess with dice is one of them. Dice are a fun way to add another level on the classic board game of chess. A 6-sided dice are perfect because it just happens that chess also has exactly 6 different kinds of pieces. There are a few different variations of dice chess but the basic difference to normal chess is that before every move, a player must roll 2 dice (or just one) and move a piece according to one of the dice numbers.
There is no standard set of rules for dice chess and you can make up your own rules combining the ones you think work best.
As playing chess with dice is a fairly unknown format of chess, it is not really supported on any of the major chess servers but you are able to play it on BrainKing.com. To play chess with dice at home, you can simply use a regular chess board and use one or two dice to let the faith decide which piece you need to move next.
