Z-Chess is a cross between GLE'X (trianGLE EXpertise) and conventional Chess.

GLE'X was invented in 1998 by a Hungarian born American, an Expert at conventional Chess. Later that year, trying to simplify the hard-to-learn game of GLE'X, he ended up putting 2 of the GLE'X boards together and modifying the new board to accomodate pieces of the ancient game. Adding an extra Queen and figuring out a new way to move the pieces, Z-Chess was born.

You can view the computerized version of Z-Chess by clicking on the following link:

Use the link on the left to read the rules of the game.

There are 2 Junior versions of Z-Chess (mainly
for kids). You can view them by clicking on the
links on the left.



It is difficult to estimate the current number of Z-Chess players world-wide. The game has been published on the Internet since 1998. Anyone can print a copy of the rules and the board from the web-site. The board can be enlarged on a copier machine, and pieces of conventional Chess can be used to play the game. The inventor, owner of the Copyrights has not discouraged anyone from printing a free copy and will not do so until the commercial versions of the game arrive at the market.


A word about the above picture

One can tell, the photographer has no clue
about this game. He does not even know how to
set up the pieces.... The White Rook and the
White Knight on the left should trade
places.

The 1st Z-Chess World Championship, planned for the year 2000, had to be cancelled because no Sponsor was found. Hopefully, the event will take place between now and the end of 2010. If you are interested in hosting the Championship, please send an e-mail to the address above.

A Rating System has already been established.

There is a Z-Chess Magazine published on-line. It is updated from time to time. Eventually it will function as a monthly publication, bringing news from all over the world.
