(Under Construction)

Blindfold Chess is a variant where the players can see all the moves, but cannot see the actual image of the board. This requires the players to visualise the positions, rather than just relying on the eye. This can be useful for teaching younger players the theoretical side of the play, rather than just moving what looks right.


1. Game Rules

It has recently been introduced that no outside materials can be used in Blindfold Chess, as these often contain visual examples of positions, thus ruining the effect of the game.

It is also easy for players to cheat in this game, but if you're not going to play properly, why play at all?


2. Tips & Tricks

It can sometimes help before you play Blindfold Chess to learn some of the positions found in the GameExplorer to get some visualization skills.
