Chess960 (or Fischer Random Chess)

Chess960 aka Fischer Random Chess is a chess variant invented by former World Chess Champion Bobby Fischer. The variant has the same rules and movements for each piece with the only change that the starting position of each piece is randomized in the beginning of a game. The name chess960 comes from the 960 unique possibilities the randomizing can result in after applying some of the restrictions, such as keeping the bishops on opposite colored squares.
